HIS Radeon HD 5750 IceQ+ 1GB Video Card - Final Thoughts

We've missed the IceQ+ series for a while. Today we see the latest model to come in under this well known series, the mid-range HD 5750.

Final Thoughts

 

On the topic of the drivers, you can see a number of small little performance bumps with the 10.1s installed on the HD 5750. In places we don't see a performance increase from the new driver, the HD 5750 IceQ+ lines up exactly how we would expect it to.

 

Looking at the noise levels for the card, it reminds us why we love the IceQ+ series so much. While the cooling is a little worse than the iCooler IV cooler, it's better than the stock numbers. Where it shines is in the noise department; the design is really whisper quite which for so many people is the most important feature.

 

If you want a card that performs well at 1680 x 1050 with detail settings at high or even 1920 x 1200 with the detail dropped to medium, the HD 5750 is a great card. If you're not fussed about the sound or core temperature, you could get any run of the mill version of the model including the reference HD 5750 we looked at from HIS.

 

If you want something that's going to run as cool as possible, then the iCooler IV is what we would suggest. If on the other hand you're happy to accept just a few more degrees higher than that, but really want to keep noise levels down, this IceQ+ version is exactly what we would suggest.

 

The bundle is a little light, but the model is all about the cooler and the noise levels it puts out. The HIS IceQ+ shines in this area and if that's what you're after, this is simply a fantastic version of a great model.
