Our Rating: We rate this 4.5 out of 5

The ATI Radeon HD 5750 is a graphics card that belongs to ATI's "Juniper" line-up.

The ATI Radeon HD 5750 is a graphics card that belongs to ATI's "Juniper" line-up.

Feature-wise what is special about the ATI Radeon HD 5750 is its support for DirectX 11 games and applications. Simply put, this is the way forward for graphical applications since Windows 7 allows for DirectX11.

Also, the ATI Radeon HD 5750 supports Eyefinity technology which allows a single card to output visuals to up to six displays. The HD 5750 has a core clocked at 700MHz, has 1GB of memory, uses a 128-bit memory

Surprisingly, at full load, the ATI Radeon HD 5750 registered a slightly higher temperature of 61°C. However, at idle, these temperatures dropped to a low 38°C.

We pitched the ATI Radeon HD 5750 against the Zotac GTS 250, a top-ranked Mainstream Graphics Card. We started the benchmarking with 3D Mark '06. The HD 5750 managed a score of 15,310 as opposed to 16,211 scored by the GTS 250.

However, when we put on 3D Mark Vantage's High preset, the ATI emerged on top with 5081 points, about 100 points more than the nVidia. Even in our gaming benchmarks, the jostling between the two cards was very closely fought. While in Crysis, the ATI Radeon HD 5750 went in front, the nVidia caught up thanks to its strong showing in Far Cry 2.
