GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5750 1GB Video Card

Video Card


We've had a look at a few HD 5750 cards from companies and we're not sure if there's no reference cooler or that no one simply wants to use it. Having a look at the card straight on, you can see we've got a new fan design which we haven't seen before.




This seems to be becoming a bit of a trend with GIGABYTE, though. We saw them opt for quite a large fan on their GT 240 and this one seems no different. The bigger fans tend to be quieter while also offering better cooling capabilities. Hopefully this one's no different. As for stickers, there's not a whole lot of room; we've simply got a GIGABYTE one that sits in the middle of the fan.






While the fan might be different, the PCB layout is pretty much the same. Towards the back of the card we have a single PCI-E 6-Pin power connector while closer to the front we have a Crossfire connector in the event you want to hook a bunch of these up together.




The I/O department carries with it all the goodies we've come to expect from the HD 5000 series with two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a native HDMI and DisplayPort connection. These connections mean we're able to have up to three monitors on the single card through ATIs Eyefinity technology.




Having a look at the clocks, GIGABYTE hasn't done anything with them. The core comes in at the stock 700MHz while the 1GB of GDDR5 carries with it the stock clock of 4600MHz QDR.




While it's always nice to see companies overclock the core and memory, it's still something a lot of companies don't do with these mid-range cards at launch. Hopefully we'll begin to see companies overclock the card a little in future, because the HD 5750 really manages to show some potential.
