The card that we have reviewed in this article from HIS does come in a low profile format, which is ideal in case we’d like to fit it in a small factor enclosure; the manufacturer has made sure to include some extra I/O shields, that we could use depending on the outputs we’ll need.
The “iCooler is Quiet” statement is not a lie; even in full load, during all our tests, the VGA card fans remained quiet and as we have seen from the measurements with the sound meter, there is a very small noise difference between 30% and 40%, the fan speed percentages the card usually remains during usage.
Our previous recommendations regarding the games we could play with this card are still in place (from the previous AMD RADEON HD 7750 review): this card performs well when running up to 1680x1050 or 1600x1200, with the details from medium to high on most of the latest games. When running older releases, we may be surprised to see that this card handles well games at even the 1920x1080 resolution, considering that it has about the same performances as the RADEON HD 5770, which was a best-buy mainstream card for quite a long time.
The Radeon HD 7750 we have tested from AMD in March did achieve an 880MHz frequency on the GPU when overclocking via CCC and we did not break the imposed 900MHz limit. With the HIS card it was another story: right from the start we have cranked the GPU at the maximum frequency and the card wasn’t giving any sign of weakness. The next step was to run the supplied utility and after hours of testing we have reached a maximum frequency of 960Mhz on the core and 1340Mhz on the memory, which is impressive in our opinion.
To compare the performances, we have run the 3DMark 2011 synthetic benchmark, so here are the results:
The card is available online for about 80 Euros, which is a good price considering its overclockability and custom, silent cooling.
