Conclusion:

The XFX HD 5750 performed admirably and the results shouldn't be confused for poor performance when compared to the titans it sat next to - the card did great and came within a stone's throw of the GTX 260. For a low power and low cost solution this card did very decently in most of the benchmarks. Microsoft DirectX 11 isn't out yet, but the card will be ready for when it does arrive, it is always nice to look toward the future. The ATI Eyefinity capability is another cool feature of the 5-series cards, gaming can easily become more impressive and enthralling with games spanning across multiple monitor setups - not to mention it makes it even easier to setup an in-home flight simulator. The lengths that this card is willing to overclock to are phenomenal as well, running the fan at 100% wasn't necessary either (it was just noisier) and didn't help the maximum overclock but a 20% overclock on both the core and memory is always awesome! Add in the idling capabilities from the ATI PowerPlay technology and this card looks to be a good deal.

The only real cons are that the fan is loud at 100% speed, which should be obvious but in retrospect the 5870's blower motor is far louder. At 50% the fan is pretty quiet while still moving plenty of air. The second con is that there aren't any DirectX 11 games released yet to make use of the full capability of the video card. Oh, and no DVI to VGA adapter was included for those who do still use VGA. Otherwise, the XFX HD 5750 is a great package!

 

Pros:

  • Great operating temperatures
  • Good overclockability
  • Low energy requirements
  • ATI Eyefinity
  • Decent accessory pack

 

Cons:

  • Fan is loud at 100%
  • No DX11 games out yet
