Radeon HD 5750 review (Crossfire)

Ever since ATI released their DX11 class graphics cards the Guru3D.com homepage has been plastered red with all the articles and spin-off articles based on series 5000 products. It's only been a few days since we released the Radeon HD 5770 reference article. In that article we originally also planned the results for the Radeon HD 5750. There was a small shipping mixup though, causing our 5750 board to arrive a little late here in the lab. That said, we received two cards and this article is obviously going to cover them. The article will be similar to the reference Radeon HD 5770 article with minor tweaks here and there, and obviously all Radeon HD 5750 results (CrossfireX as well) now included.
The recently released Radeon HD 5870 and 5850 products are segmented in the high-end range and as such do come with a fairly spicy price tag making all the new features out of reach for a lot of people. ATI is going to address that with the releases of series 5700 graphics cards. Two products will be releases in the mid-range segment. However, they will be stacked and loaded with exactly the same features as the 5800 series, yet it's performance is cut-down and obviously in return, the pricing is much more attractive as well.
In collaboration with ATI we will test the Radeon HD 5750 in single and a CrossfireX (Multi-GPU) setup. It's a product that performance wise positions itself close to the Radeon HD 4850 and GeForce GTS 250 yet now with superior features at an attractive price.
So what's the buzz for series 5000? Well, ATI has been focusing on three primary features and key selling points for the series 5000 products. First off, the new graphics adapters are of course DirectX 11 ready. With Windows 7 and Vista being DX11 ready all we need are some games to take advantage of DirectCompute, multi-threading, Hardware Tessellation and new shader 5.0 extensions. DX11 is going to be good. More on that later on in this article of course.
Another big feature of the product that you already learned about is of course Eyefinity, the ability to connect one to up-to six monitors (depending on AIC/AIB choices in outputs) to your videocard and use it in a desktop environment, or to create an incredible wide monitor resolution to play games in. It's nice, it is niche and yes... certainly not an option many of you will use... but really it is breathtaking as well. We'll explain this in a separate chapter.
The third big and prominent feature is of course performance for money. It's new, it's affordable, it has AMD written all over it ... head on over to the next page where we'll meet and greet Juniper aka Radeon HD series 5700.
We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.
Radeon HD 7990 review
We review the new AMD Radeon HD 7990 including FCAT frametime measurements. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker review
We test and review the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker, this is the much discussed 7870 card that in fact has a 7900 series GPU, the Tahiti LE. For a fair amount of money this series 7800 product now offers 7900 series performance. Armed with 2GB of graphics memory it hits a sweet spot gaming performance wise and to date it one of the more popular products in the mainstream segment. Let's check out the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker.
