dealsati radeon hd 5750 1gb video card w/hdmi & hdcp…


How does this compare to my GeForce 8800GT?



Radeon 5750 vs. nVidia Geforce 8800GT

- Newer DirectX 11 & Shader Model 5.0 support (DX10 = 8800GT)
- Faster GDDR5 video RAM (GDDR3= 8800GT)
- OpenGL 3.2 (2.1 = 8800GT)
- 700MHz Engine clock (600Mhz = 8800GT)
- OpenCL support
- 720 Stream Processors (112 for 8800GT)

Granted, the Geforce 8800GT has a 256-bit memory interface against the Radeon HD 5750’s 128-bit and the 8800GT’s memory clock is faster but the Radeon HD 5750 is still an excellent cost-effective upgrade if you’re looking to play the latest and greatest games!


thumbs up for answering a customers question.


I actually have this same card, except for the brand. It's served me well these last 2 years. Granted, on 1080P settings i can't run all the new games at the highest settings, but that is likely a combo issue with my AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition coupled with this. Skyrim still runs at fairly high settings, but you will have to fine tune the new games and tone some graphics down for a good steady framerate with the newest games. But i can still play Skyrim and SWTOR at more than decent settings for my needs :D


@jdjonsson: Just FYI: That comparison for the stream processing units is flawed because of the difference in the way that Nvidia and ATI measure their stream processing. If you consistently look at their terminology, you'll notice that one refers to them as 'stream processors' and the other refers to them as 'stream processing units'. Because of this, the ATI numbers are typically around 5 times what the Nvidia numbers are for comparable cards. It's an important fact to remember because the ATI cards will always come out on top in a big way with regard to stream processing if you're not aware of this.


@dmmutti: It's an ATI, like it says in the title.


@toge: I am aware of what it says on the title. I ask because I have had a variety of "ATI" cards that were all different brands. Just because it says nvidia or ATI does not mean it is the brand of the card.
