Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 for your tamer gamer needs

Sapphire Radeon HD 5750When a new graphics chip lineup is launched there’s usually quite a few chips that aren’t quite up to the task for running at the insanely high speeds of the top end so they do a bit of tinkering and make them suitable for the lower end of the market. It might seem a little deceptive but hey you’re getting quite a bit of performance from less expensive chips.

Sapphire’s Radeon HD 5750 won’t dent your pocket very much and, for the price, it features  speedy results in many of today’s latest and greatest gaming titles. Techgage runs it through its paces:

In addition, the HD 5750, though a “budget” offering, lacks nothing of what makes the HD 5000 series so great. That means there’s full support for DirectX 11, Eyefinity (multi-monitor), multiple video outputs and so forth. From a features standpoint, it’s all here. What’s lacking is of course the incredible performance of the larger cards. Both the HD 5750 and HD 5770 have had their memory bus downgraded to 128-bit, while at the same time, they lose a substantial number of shader cores (exactly half of the 58×0 for each respective model).

While there’s plenty of competition in its segment its lower power consumption and advanced feature set makes it the more intriguing choice.
