Was browsing around at cards, and noticed the specs for the radeon 6770 lists it as having 320x4 stream processors clocked at 900MHz at default. This compared to say a 5870 which has 320x5 stream processors clocked at 850MHz. As I've been told that SPs are more or less what makes the hash happen, a quick calc puts a 6770 at 80% of the hashing power of a 5870, or around 330MHash/sec. Why then is it that it looks to be pulling barely 200MHash/sec from the hardware lists?

As far as I know, the HD6770 has only 800 stream processors, while HD5870 is having 1600 of them.

Ah, I guess the article I was reading misquoted the number of SPs, that'd make sense then.

open up gpu-z and see how many it has.
If where you bought it from stated how many SP it had and was wrong that could be a reason to return it and get another card.

6770 is the exact same hardware as a 5770, which has the same number of shaders as a 4870.   That being 800.
