Have you been looking for a new video card for your system? If you are not demanding the most bleeding edge technology that is going to cost you an arm and a leg, but is still going to be able to deliver you some pretty amazing looking graphics in your favorite games, you may want to check out the new ASUS EAH5750. The EAH5750 is going to utilize the new core from ATI, but put it in on a card that is not going to break the bank. Is the EAH5750 going to be able to give enough of a performance boost to justify replacing your aging HD3850 or HD4870? We will find out the answer to that by the time we finish looking at the card, so let's get started!
The packaging for the ASUS EAH5750 Forumula is very busy. The front of the box is where you are going to find a picture of a race car that has been edited to have graphics showing it driving extremely fast. Right next to the image of the car driving, you'll see "13% Cooler" printed in a blue and white text, letting you know that ASUS has used its own custom cooler on the card to help battle the biggest battle any overclocker faces, high temperatures. The top left hand corner is where you are going to find the ASUS logo with the slogan "Inspiring Innovation * Persistent Perfection" printed below it. The EAH5750 Formula logo printed at the bottom of the front is where you are going to see all the badges that the card holds, such as the 1GB of GDDR5 memory, HDMI support, DirectX 11 support, and ASUS Xtreme Design. The back of the package is where you will find a list of the "Powerful Features" the card possesses, as well as what ASUS Exclusive Innovation products are included with the card and details explaining them. When you open up the front of the package, you are going to get a peak at the card, which has the cooler in the shape of a race car, and a few pointers about the performance, safety, and reliability of the card.
Pulling the card out of the packaging, you'll see that ASUS has protected the EAH5750 by placing it inside a black Styrofoam enclosure inside a cardboard box. ASUS has included one crossfire bridge, a HDMI to DVI dongle, and a 4-pin Molex to a 6-pin PCI-E power adapter. Under the Styrofoam enclosure, ASUS has stashed the VGA drivers CD, the Multi-language Manual, and the SpeedSetup booklet.
Now that we know how the ASUS EAH5750 comes packaged and what kind of goodies come with along with it, it's time to take a good look at the card itself.
