PowerColor Single-Slot AMD Radeon HD 7750 Video Card

Traditional AMD video card manufacturer PowerColor has just launched the new Radeon HD 7750 video card on its official website. The new graphics adapter features a LowProfile PCB and a modest single-slot cooling system.

The card is built on AMD’s “Cape Verde” graphics processing unit that comes with a very small 123-square millimeter die size, containing 1.5 billion transistors. The default GPU speed is 800 MHz when working in full load 3D mode. In 2D mode, the frequency of the GPU will drop to a low 300 MHz. The 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory is clocked at 4500 MHz when in 3D mode, but it drops to 600 MHz when working in 2D.  The memory and the GPU work on a tight 128 bit BUS, so playing games with very high resolutions will be a little tricky. The “Cape Verde XT” GPU is part of AMD’s GCN architecture and comes with much improved GPU compute performance. The GPU has 512 unified shader processors, 32 texturing units and 16 ROPs.

Compared with the AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz edition, this is a cut-down “Cape Verde” GPU, with two of its 10 CUs (compute units) disabled and a 20% lower clock speed. In our opinion, it would have been better if the cooling system were completely fanless, but we have a feeling that a larger copper heatsink would have been more expensive to make than the use of a 40-millimeter fan. On the other hand, fanless cooling designs usually come with a modest price premium, as they do offer increased acoustic comfort and must also provide an extra charge, as these cards are more likely to come in RMA. Pricing has not been made available yet.
