AMD has all its bases covered with its latest GPU generation based on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. The company started off with the HD 7900 series and made its way down to the mid-range, while the entry-level still consists of 6xxx-series cards. The HD 7770 and the HD 7750 are the lowest-cost models of AMD’s current-gen lineup and today we have a Black Edition model from XFX with a custom cooling solution. Let’s see if it lives up to its premium name.
Design and Build
XFX’s cooling solution takes up two slots, which is typical of cards in this segment. The card itself is built well with a black PCB and an attractive aluminium frame covering the heatsink. XFX uses what it calls Ghost Thermal Technology, which is a floating heatsink design that increases airflow through the other components as well. Double Dissipation technology makes use of two fans to effectively cool the GPU as well as the other components.
Very good design and build
Connectivity-wise, we have two DVI-I ports, HDMI and DisplayPort. XFX has also added a customized exhaust vent with its own branding. The card is open on all sides, which means that warm air is dispersed in the chassis and not directly outside. XFX has also used IP-5X fans that are completely dust resistant so they won’t get bogged down with dust entering the chassis. Since the HD 7750 only requires 55W to operate, you don’t need an external power supply as it draws all the power from the PCIE slot itself. The custom card isn’t very long either so it will fit in most mid-sized chassis.
Even though this is a Black Edition card, XFX hasn’t really overclocked it much. The core is still clocked at 900MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 RAM is clocked at 4,500MHz (effective). The memory bus is still 128-bit so the card won’t be able to handle high resolutions. The HD 7750 packs in a total of 512 stream processors and 32 ROPs. The HD7750 GPU is the same Cape Verde design as the HD7770 and is built using TSMCs 28nm fabrication process. You also get PCIE v3.0 but that really doesn’t make a big difference for a card like this.
The HD7750 supports up to four displays for multi-monitor gaming. You can also game in 3D with a multi-monitor setup but we wouldn’t recommend that since this card wont be able to handle all games at such a high resolution. Let’s see how well this card performs in our benchmarks.
