Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Ultimate Benchmark

Dorkstar and I decided we were going to benchmark all of our 7000 series AMD cards and the obvious first choice was to start at the bottom with the Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Ultimate Benchmark. The 7750 is budget card from Sapphire and AMD. The card sports a fanless design that has a huge heat sink to dissipate heat. It takes up two expansion slots but the thing runs cold as ice. The card actually sports 1GB of GDDR5 ram while having a core clock of 800 Mhz and memory clock at 1125 Mhz. Now I didn’t expect the 7750 to run great in any of the three games we tested but it actually held its own. It ran on ultra and very high settings and was playable but everything really smoothed out when we went to lower settings.

Metro 2033

The Sapphire HD 7750 did well at times playing Metro 2033. It did get bogged down in certain areas but overall it was playable and when you turn the setting down it just get even better. We did see a small increase going from 1050 to 1080 on very high. Overall the card preformed admiralty considering it is the lowest of the 7000 series.

Battlefield 3

The Sapphire HD 7750 did well running Battlefield 3. It was very playable at all setting without AA. This card only has 1GB of ram so that was not a shock but everything was smooth. As you can see we got acceptable frame rates after with AA turned off on Ultra, High, and Medium setting. We tested at 1050 with AA and after that decided it was not worth it to run at 1080 with AA since the minimum frame rates were so low. This card does give you the ability to play Battlefield 3 at high settings though.

Farcry 3

Far cry 3 was about the same as Battlefield when it came to AA. The card lacked the power to play AA and Far Cry was an even more demanding game than Battlefield 3 was so we decided to just test what we got without AA. The game was playable at all levels but became smooth at the medium setting which seems right for this card.

Thoughts:

The Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Ultimate is definitely playable on any level of the games we tested. It will not give you the best settings but this card was also in a Media PC for streaming video. I was looking for something that could output HDMI to a 46” Samsung TV and enough power to be able to do that at a good price point. This card can be had for as low as 119.99 right now and gives you updated technology such as OpenCL 4.2 and Directx 11. This card definitely would not be a first choice for gaming but it is suitable for the budget conscious person. While we did not have a second card to run in crossfire I can only assume the games we tested would show better frame rates but AA is not something I would be using with this card.
