Introduction to the Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Low Profile Video Card
As of right now the Radeon HD 7750 maybe at the bottom of the performance chart but it does do well when it comes to moderate gaming and excel when it comes to digital video output and sound. Don’t let the placement of the card fool you. Sapphire’s newest 7750 have a nice advantage over the rest and it has nothing really to do with performance. The low profile HD 7750 is ideal for those that little space internally for larger cards. Yes, a great fit the many Dell and HP machine with the extra small enclosures and smaller power supplies.
Sapphire’s take on the Radeon GD 7750
The SAPPHIRE HD 7750 1GB Low profile model is based on the highly acclaimed Graphics Core Next architecture from AMD, and retains all the features of the HD 7700 series but in a truly low profile format. Many low profile cards use a cooler that is actually larger than the PCB format, and cannot be used in slimline cases. The SAPPHIRE solution uses a specially developed single slot cooler with an efficient ball bearing fan and heatsink design that truly follows the low profile format. This makes it ideally suited to applications like HTPCs or installation in even the slimmest styles of mini-ITX cases.
Performance is the same as other implementations of the HD 7750, with core clock speed of 800MHz and 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4500MHz (effective). Output configuration is very flexible, including multi-monitor support for AMD Eyefinity. Its Dual-Link DVI-I, HDMI and Displayport outputs are all mounted within the low-profile backplate. This has been achieved by the use of mini-DP and micro HDMI sockets. A set of Mini-DP to DP, micro-HDMI to HDMI, and DVI-I to VGA adapters are all supplied with the card, as well as both low profile and standard height backplates.
