Radeon HD 5750 review (Crossfire)

Guess what, I think I like the 5750 over the 5770 even better. The 5770 is a really nice little card! However the 5750 is merely 10~15% slower yet far more attractive in price (nearly a quarter to a third cheaper). The Radeon HD 5750 is available in the $109 / 129 USD bracket and that's just golden.
This series is the first ever mid-range DX11 class product series that is affordable, comes with a great feature set, and is highly competitive performance wise. The product positions itself roughly at the Radeon HD 4850 performance wise, yet has a far more advanced feature set.
So at 129 USD you can purchase a DX11 class card with pretty decent performance alright. Added benefit is Eyefinity technology. Now I do not see you playing modern games on three monitors with this card as that might be a little overkill on the GPU, but if you'd stick to say 3x 1280x1024 it might be doable. It's an added 'free' feature.
Stability wise we have had no issues whatsoever except a texture bug in Anno 1404, which will be fixed soon as such we left out the results for this title. We see commendable performance and great image quality as well. CrossfireX scaling as shown in this article is also very nice, in fact it surprised me a couple of times. You'll quickly gain 1.7x performance in a two-way GPU setup, and that is definitely a lot of performance for the money.
The biggest culprit of the 5750 series will be it's memory bandwidth. So if you purchase a card and have a need for overclocking -- the memory is the golden nugget you are after. Extra bandwidth will help out greatly. Also overclocking overall with the reference 5750 is working out really well adding another 10% performance really easily.
The bottom line: With the Radeon 5750 products ATI offers DX11 class graphics at a very fair price. If your monitor resolution does not exceed 1600x1200 then it offers plenty of performance for most current and modern games, and as such it offers real good value for money. Guru3D highly recommends this product, if it meets your budget requirements.
