Club 3D Radeon HD 7750 preview: Standard specs, but very cheap

The Club 3D Radeon HD 7750 is a dime-a-dozen Radeon HD 7750 kaart. The GPU runs at the standard clock frequency of 800MHz, and the 1GB GDDR5 memory also is the standard 1,125MHz.

The card includes dual-link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort and is compatible with three monitors, all of which are standard features of the AMD reference card. It doesn't need an extra power connector, is one slot wide and comes with a single fan. The cooler is slightly different to what we saw on AMD's Radeon HD 7750 reference card.

This Club 3D card is very affordable, you can find it for around £85. That makes it one of the, if not the most affordable Radeon HD 7750.

We tested the Radeon HD 7750 and 7770 cards on our graphics card test platform that consists of an Intel Core i7 3960X, 16GB DDR3-1600 memory, a Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB hard disk, a Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1,200 Watts power supply, and Windows 7 x64. This review focuses solely on the differences between the various cards we tested.

We measured the temperature after two rounds of benchmarks in Metro 2033, both via drivers and with an infrared temperature sensor. Noise levels were measured at a distance of 10cm while running 3DMark.

Our meter registered 56.5 degrees for the Club 3D card. ASUS has proven it can do much better with this with the HD7750-1GD5, which has a dual-slot cooler and is about £12 more expensive. The Sapphire card we tested did get warmer, but it does not have a fan and is entirely passively cooled.

The amount of noise the Club 3D card creates is more than we'd like. With 43 dB(A) it's louder than all previously tested Radeon HD 7750s and 7770s. You can read the rest of Club 3D Radeon HD 7750 preview on Hardware.info.
