Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X Video Card ReviewWed, Dec 02, 2009 - 9:32 AM
The Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X, with the configuration of 720 stream processors and 1GB of GDDR5 memory offers users access to the same new generation technology, and full DirectX 11 support found on the more expensive models at a lower price point. The Vapor-X model is also factory overclocked and uses a better cooling solution than the reference design. Read on to see what this budget friendly card is all about.
The Sapphire Vapor-X HD5750 has a look all its own. Though, looks aren’t what the Vapor-X is all about; it’s about performance. Using their patent pending Black Diamond Chokes they can offer a card that is 10% cooler and offers 25% more power efficiency than other cards that use the normal chokes. To keep things even cooler this card uses the Vapor-X cooler. A key point for me aside from performance (which the Vapor-X has plenty of) is the noise, or lack thereof. Throughout the testing I never heard a peep out of the fan. The test I was sure I would hear the fan on was the power consumption test. I disabled all the other fans in the system so that they wouldn’t fluctuate speed and power, and I still couldn’t hear the fan on the Vapor-X while it was set on auto.
