Final Thoughts


Having a look at the gaming performance, the HD 5750 from GIGABYTE doesn't hold any surprises with it coming in just as we would expect. As for the difference between the two driver sets, there seems to be a slight drop in CINEBENCH performance; for most people this won't be an issue since gaming performance is pretty much in line with the 9.10 betas.


The stand out point for this card is the cooling; GIGABYTE are on a bit of a roll when it comes to using their own cooling. We saw them do an excellent job on the GT 240 which offered a great performance to noise ratio and we see the same thing here again. If you're looking for something that's quiet and is going to run cooler than some of the original designs from companies, this is an excellent choice.


Performance, while still the same as any standard HD 5750, is still great. Since most of the cards we test are of the higher end variety, our in game presets tend to revolve around very high to maximum in game settings. You can see for the most part that the HD 5750 doesn't have any real trouble handling this at 1680 x 1050, with some games even being playable at 1920 x 1200.


This is a nice HD 5750 that's quiet and is cooled well thanks to the cooling option GIGABYTE has opted for. It would've been nice to see a core and memory bump since we know the card has a few more MHz in it, but this is something you can easily do yourself under the Catalyst driver software.


If you're on the hunt for a HD 5750 this is one worth looking at. While it might carry the stock clocks, ATIs own built in Overdrive feature can give you a bit more MHz which is going to give the model a bit more breathing room. There's not a whole lot more you could ask for out of the mid-range model that comes in at $144.99 over at Newegg.
