Like the HD 7770, the HD 7750 sees the same problem with its biggest threat being from AMD themselves. While $109.99 is a nice price point, the issue is if you head on over to Newegg, you're going to see HD 6850 video cards can be had for $129.99 after rebate. The HD 7700 series is going to fall into its own when we see the HD 6800 series run out, but the issue continues to be that not only is there stock of the HD 6800 series, there's plenty of it at aggressive price points, thanks to the rebates currently on offer.
Like the Sapphire and XFX HD 7770 cards we've looked at, HIS have got a nice version of a card here that's quiet and offers some good connectivity. The issue is that the HD 7750 just doesn't sit in the best place at the moment making it hard for the model to stand out.
AMD have done a good job over recent video card launches, but it really feels like they've fallen short this time with the HD 7700 series. By not clearing the market of their own cards, they've made the biggest competition to their new model an older model from them. The HD 7700 series continues to leave us feeling a little flat at the moment. Unfortunately the execution of this model isn't up to the same standard of other recent AMD video card launches.
In the end you're better off buying a HD 6800 series card over a HD 7700 series card. With current stock levels and the fact that it's still an AMD card, it's probably not the biggest issue for AMD as they continue to sell cards. The problem is when the HD 6800 series begins to run out of stock is can the HD 7700 series get past the initial stigma that has been set?
