Sapphire HD 7750 1GB Low Profile Review
Sapphire HD 7750 Low Profile Conclusions
Lately, the mini-ITX form factor has become quite popular with enthusiasts who want a powerful PC in a small form factor and while Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors are pushing the boundaries in terms of CPU performance, GPU performance has been lagging. Prior to the HD 7750 Low Profile, the only options were last generation Radeon cards such as the HD 6570 or the HD 6670, or the Nvidia GT 640, all of which (to put bluntly) suck when it comes to gaming performance.
Now, I’m not saying that the HD 7750 is a card that’ll run every game at 1080p, max settings as it does have its limitations, but those who don’t mind playing games at 1680×1050 at medium settings can expect to play most games at acceptable framerates. Those who play less graphically intensive games such as Diablo 3 can even expect the Sapphire HD 7750 Low Profile to dish out very playable framerates at 1920×1200 on high settings. Need a new, portable mini-ITX LAN-box to play Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 or some League of Legends? Throw the Sapphire HD 7750 Low Profile in your new rig and you’ll be good to go.
Current pricing on the Sapphire HD 7750 1GB Low Profile is $114.99 on Newegg, which puts it in the budget range for a graphics card. The lowest price for a full sized Radeon HD 7750 such as the Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 is currently $104.99 on Amazon, so the low profile edition of the card is going to cost a $10 premium over the standard Radeon HD 7750. That said, there aren’t really any options when you absolutely need low profile in order to fit a certain case, and still want to be able to play games.
The Sapphire HD 7750 1GB Low Profile is currently the best choice for gamers who absolutely need a low profile graphics card.
