Video Card

This is the first ATI Radeon HD 5000 series video card that we can see which doesn't use the same overall cooler design. Instead Sapphire has opted for something a bit more traditional that doesn't manage to take up the whole surface of the video card.

There really isn't a whole lot to say about the overall cooler, the only sticker on it is the Sapphire one placed in the middle of the fan. The other feature worth noting would be the copper base that we can see through the fins, this sits on top of the core to help keep temperatures down a bit better than an aluminum base.

You might find yourself slightly surprised with the single 6-pin PCI-E power connector needed to get the video card up and running. Really though, these mid-range cards offer a good punch of power these days, that it isn't too much of a surprise.

At the front we of course also see two CrossFire connectors which let you run up to three of these cards together, we're not sure why you would bother though, most the time with these mid-range options it's a better option to just fork out the extra money for the higher end models.

While the cooler might be different to the other 5800 cards, the HD 5750 is still packing the same I/O design which gives us the ability to run up to three monitors at the same time via ATI's new EyeFinity technology. As for ports go, we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a single HDMI and DisplayPort connector.

Specifications

Since I originally forgot to take a screenshot from GPU-Z, I simply fired up Windows with the video card installed but with no driver installed. This is the main reason for the running clock rates, the default clock rates though are correct; we have a 700MHz core, which is a good 150MHz lower than the HD 5770.

The same 1GB of GDDR5 running on a 128-bit memory bus comes in at 1150MHz or 4600MHz QDR, which is only 200MHz QDR lower than it's big brother, the HD 5770.
