ASUS HD 7750 Review

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

The non-reference PCB on the HD 7750 ASUS, coupled with their custom heatsink, makes this a dual slot card, measuring 7.25” long. While the stock AMD HD 7750 speeds are 800MHz Core and 1125MHz Memory, the ASUS HD 7750 comes with a minor overclock of 820MHz and 1150MHz on Core and Memory speeds respectively.

The display outputs are respectable, with one DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort, allowing for all three to be connected simultaneously using Eyefinity 2.0. Given the diminutive hardware inside, the HD 7750 only requires a 400W PSU, with no requirement for an extra PCIe power cable.

Moving on, the cooling solution is fairly decent on the HD 7750, if you don’t want to overclock the card. The large aluminum heatsink directly touches the GPU, but the memory chips barely touch the heatsink’s bottom plate. The outward spiraling heatsink does stretch out all over the PCB, and so the fan does a good job of keeping things cool and impressively quiet.

During our benchmarks, on our open testbed, the ASUS HD 7750 idled at around 34°C and didn’t break beyond 51°C under full load.

    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.

    this review is so wrong
