Excerpt: Sapphire Radeon HD5750 Vapor-X Review Welcome to Rage3D's look at the Sapphire HD5750 Vapor-X graphics card! The bottom end of the new Evergreen line-up is filled by the Juniper core based cards, the HD5770 and HD5750. Available in 512MB and 1GB configurations and starting at $109USD, the HD5750 has the makings of being the hero of the new line up.
Conclusion: ATI's whole 5-range of graphic cards seems to be performing great, and while doing that the new series also seems to draw less power than the old ones. Good job all round! The higher end models have had serious availability issues, but these lower end 5770 and 5750 cards are readily available at reasonable prices.
Pros: Availability, Overclocking, Crossfire performance, Supports up to three displays
Cons: Price compared to HD5770, Cooler does not blow warm air out from the case
Conclusion: The Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X video card is a slightly faster overclocked version of their regular HD 5750 card. While a 10MHz overclock on both the core and memory clock speeds is not much, that is not the point of this card. The Vapor-X video card runs quietly when in Windows with no discernable noise from the card in normal operation. The second thing this card has is a high overclock threshold with 850MHz for the core and 1420MHz for the memory fully stable.
Conclusion: In its standard form the Radeon 5750 is a card which provides a great balance of value and performance. It regularly provides playable framerates at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and in games such as Left 4 Dead 2 it is even possible to play at 2560x1600 which is incredible for a low cost model.
Summary: In its standard form the Radeon 5750 is a card which provides a great balance of value and performance. It regularly provides playable framerates at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and in games such as Left 4 Dead 2 it is even possible to play at 2560x1600 which is incredible for a low cost model. In addition to this we have DirectX 11 support, onboard HDMI, 7.1 audio and Blu-Ray acceleration which make the card ideal for media centre use.
Mid-range machinations: AMD's Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 and HD 5750 GPUs
13 October 2009
Conclusion: We consider any product score above '50%' as a safe buy. The higher the score, the higher the recommendation from HEXUS to buy. Simple, straightforward buying advice. The rating is given in relation to the category the component competes in, therefore the AMD Radeon HD 5770 and HD 5750 1,024MB GPUs are evaluated with respect to our 'mid-range and high-end components' criteria.
Excerpt: It's a reasonably powerful-looking card but the Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X is less hefty than some due to its significantly less meaty onboard cooling system. Being a Sapphire Vapor-X model, however, the cooling is more sophisticated and allows for marginally faster clock speeds. As with the 5770, the additional power requires a single 6-pin connector.
Excerpt: New Radeon with R9 280X markings won’t bring too much innovation, because the manufacturers find it the easiest to just replace the old BIOS with a new one. Luckily, that doesn’t change the fact that ... Anyone who was at least a bit interested in the global gaming scene in the last ten years has certainly heard about a guy named Johnathan Wendel, who’s far more known by his nickname Fatal1ty. Even th...
Conclusion: I’ll admit to being quite unimpressed with the HD 5750 when it was first released due to its close proximity to the HD 5770’s price versus the massive performance gap between the two cards. After using it and its bigger brother extensively for the last few weeks, I’m still not singing the HD 5750’s praises but have developed a better understanding of ATI’s reasoning behind its market placement.
