Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 

Released October, 2009
  • 710 MHz
  • 1 GB GDDR5
6 Out of 10

It should also be noted that even though the cooler looks neither sexy nor powerful it offers excellent cooling performance, which allows Sapphire to run at very quiet fan speeds, offering a very enjoyable work and gaming experience with their new HD 5750.

Compared to the stylish AMD coolers, the Sapphire cooler doesn't look too impressive.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Strap a 120 mm fan onto the heatsink, bump the voltage and you'll soon be breaking some records (in that performance class).

PowerColor also managed to squeeze in these changes without any reduction in clock rates or performance, which is what we often see on so called "green" products.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
When looking at pure performance per buck you will be disappointed however.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)


Even though it might not win any beauty contest against AMD's reference design HD 5770, which comes with a very stylish modern looking cooler, it can score high on all other criteria.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)
During the review however, the cooler could impress and change my opinion.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)
As cooler, Sapphire uses an in-house design that has been used on other HD 4xxx Series cards before.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)


To be honest, I'm quite surprised to see even that much overclocking.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
It is well supported by all overclocking software.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
Essentially you can buy a HD 5750, overclock it to HD 5770 performance levels and party away the rest of the money.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)


It is not only quiet but the temperatures look great too, below 70° under load.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2009)
PowerColor's heatsink uses four heatpipes and a copper base to transport the heat away quickly to a large number of fins where it can be dissipated to the surrounding air.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
As you can see, the card shows excellent temperatures, which are perfectly safe.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)


When installing the card in your system, it is best to monitor temperatures using GPU-Z or any other monitoring tool, and then stress the card for about half an house using Furmark or similar.
