AMD’s push to bring a 40nm GPU to the market was a smart move, and beating Nvidia to the punch was icing on the cake for the embattled company. Following their highly successful 4800 series cards, the 5700 series cards should help them continue the trend, particularly for gamers on a budget that want good performance without spending a fortune.

The Sapphire Radeon 5750 is a card that offers a very compelling argument to consumers; it offers very respectable performance in most of today’s hottest games, runs cool and quiet, draws little power, and is priced very attractively; that is an excellent combination regardless how you look at it. There are really only a couple of drawbacks here: first, the cooler doesn’t vent warm air outside the rear of the case (but that’s not a terribly big issue because the 5750 doesn’t run very hot anyways), and second, the performance will struggle if you plan on running games at 1920 resolution (which is expected) since it cannot match the horsepower of the 5800 series cards.

Sapphire’s Radeon 5750 is an impressive little card, and while it can’t run with the big dogs, it does offer excellent value for gamers on a budget who are looking for performance on the cheap. Getting a free, yet-to-be-released DX11 game title in DiRT 2 is icing on the cake, and we have no hesitation recommending this card.
