HIS Radeon HD 7750 iCooler Low Profile Graphics Card

AMD recently took the clock speed of the Radeon HD 7750 graphics card from 800 MHz to 900 MHz, but HIS decided to tone it back down when it made the Radeon HD 7750 iCooler low-profile. 

Advanced Micro Devices recently improved the base clock speeds of many Radeon HD 7000 graphics adapters, in order to better face off against NVIDIA's GeForce 600 line. That is to say 1 GHz editions of the stronger boards were presented, and even the HD 7750 was taken from 800 MHz to 900 MHz, as we mentioned above. The reason HIS tuned the clock back this once is that the Radeon HD 7750 iCooler low-profile, being half-sized, has a smaller cooler and, thus, a reduced ability to dissipate heat. The half-height PCB (printed circuit board) allows buyers to place the item inside small form factor cases, like those used by HTPCs (home-theater personal computers). Granted, the adapter comes with a standard, full-size bracket, but low-profile brackets are included in the shipment as well, so there are no problems on that end. That said, the cooler has two 40 mm fans that dissipate the heat drawn out of the GPU, VRM and memory chips by the monolithic aluminum heatsink.

During normal operation and even more graphically intensive tasks, there should be absolutely no danger of overheating or for the noise to go above 28 dBA. As for the other specs, they are as follows: 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM at 1,125 MHz (4.50 GHz effective), a memory interface of 128 bits and maximum resolutions of 2,560 x 1,600 (Dual-link DVI) and 2,048 x 1,536 (VGA) per display. Indeed, the small card has, in addition to HDMI 1.4a, dual-link DVI and D-Sub outputs. HIS did not provide a price, but the regular iCooler card ships for $109.99 in the US and 101.53 Euro in Europe. The low profile version should only cost a bit more.
