The HD 5750 is targeted to mainstream and price conscious consumers who wish to adopt the new ATI chip for its technological advancements – such as the revolutionary Eyefinity display option – as well as do some modest gaming.
The HD 5750 Vapor-X includes a uniquely designed cooler utilizing Sapphire’s “Vapor Chamber Technology” and improved heatsink design for superior airflow and much cooler operating temperatures. The exact specs have been detailed, and unlike our earlier assumptions of stock speeds, the card is clocked (albeit trivial ) slightly higher, including 1GB of GDDR5 memory and a core speed of
700MHz 710MHz with memory at 1150MHz (4600MHz) 1160MHz (Effective 4640 MHz).
With its small size and 16W idle low power consumption, the card is perfect for media centres. It includes dual DVI, as well as HDMI and Display port on the rear.
The Vapor-X is scheduled to be released November 3rd and will likely demand a small premium over Sapphire’s regular model.
Update (10/27/09): We received clarification on the exact speeds of the new video card. Sapphire will be clocking both core and memory 10MHz higher than stock at 710MHz and 4640MHz (effective).
