Article Publish Date:
At just $99 the HD 7750 currently has one of the best values any graphics card on the market. Beyond just the price though, the HD 7750 also utilizes AMD’s latest Graphics Core Next architecture, which has a more efficient design than the previous generation, giving this model improved performance and power draw as well.
The HD 7750 we are examining today is the HIS Radeon HD 7750 iCooler low-profile model. Like other graphics card utilizing the Cape Verde Pro silicon, the HIS HD 7750 LP comes with an 800MHz base clock paired with 8 compute units, 512 streaming processors, 16 ROPS and 32 texture units. In addition, the core includes 1.5 billion transistors and is built on a 28nm node with a die size of just 123mm². The 800MHz base clock though is slightly slower than the new default specification of 900MHz.
What really sets this model apart from the design used by other AMD partners is it comes on a small form factor PCB. This makes it idle for home theater us, as it supports AMD HD Media Accelerator and supports the latest UVD 3.0 standard, which gives it video decoding capabilities including Blu Ray 3D output and compatibility with the latest codec packages. The size and video capabilities are sure to make this card a hit with the HTPC market, but it does also pack a punch when it comes to mainstream gaming.
