A weakling among titans.

Good: Low power requirements, Small size, Great for triple-monitor setup, Very quiet
Bad: Utterly outperformed by the competition; Price should be lower
Price: AED 460

With the launch of their flagship cards, the HD 7970 and 7750, AMD is now running for the budget market with their new HD 7700 series. Today I’ll be looking at the ASUS HD 7750 targeted squarely at the sub-$150 segment.

The new HD 7700 series cards is built on the same new 28nm Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture as the HD 7900 series, so less power consumption and better cooling are a forgone conclusion here. And while it still supports the major industry standards of the HD 7900 series like DX 11.1, Eyefinity 2.0 and PCIe 3.0 support, the HD 7700 series is severely limited in raw power.

Firstly we have a crippling bandwidth of only 128-bit, followed by 8 compute units and 512 unified stream processors and a respectable 16 ROPs. Still, the 1GB of GDDR5 memory does make up in terms of bandwidth limitations; but not by much, as we’ll soon see.

Being a minor league player, ASUS has packed the HD 7750 in a small package, with the addition of an instruction manual, Drivers CD and DVI to VGA converter.

    your review is totaly incorrect!!

    At current, you’re comparing a 110 dollar video card to a 145 dollar video card, which places you directly into HD 7770 territory. perhaps you could find a more comparable card for the HD 7750 to line up against?

      Actually, Newegg has listed the ASUS HD 7750 at $110 and the Gigasbyte GTX 550Ti (non-overclocked edition) at $120. I think this is as close a comparison as it gets. The majority of GTX 550Ti are $120 with rebate as well.

    the worst benchmark site ever

    This review hardly seems fair since the HD 7750 seems to be a replacement for the HD 6670.
