Yeston Radeon HD 7750 Exposed
Yeston claims that their R7750 model was designed for gamers. Well I would be very careful with that statement, since I doubt that any HD 7750 can handle most of new games.
This is in fact the new 900MHz version of HD 7750. It has a non-reference PCB and cooler. Yeston went further and clocked this card to 950MHz, which makes it one of the fastest (if not the fastest) Radeon HD 7750 on the market. The memory is left intact at 5000MHz effective speed.
Card is featuring a single-fan cooling solution. It’s a dual-slot design because Yeston eqipped with a heastink and also two copper plated heatpipes. Yeston’s R7750 is equipped with 4+1+1 phase power design, which is powered through a single 6-pin connector (the reference card does not require additional power adapters). Worth noting that first iteration of HD 7750 had only 2+1 design, while the 900MHz version is featuring 3+1 phase design. The PWN circuit has been placed on the right side of the PCB, which in fact shorter than public version – only 7.5 inches.
Because this is a dual-slot card it can offer more display outputs. Card is equipped with dual DVI’s, HDMI and DisplayPort.
Card was tested and compared to GTX 550 Ti. The conclusion was that Yeston’s card is 7.8% faster than GeForce model. Additionally, it can be overclocked up to 1120MHz, which increases the performance by 12%.
As mentioned earlier, this is the card from Chinese manufacturer. It will never be released worldwide. However it’s worth showing some very rare cards from time to time.
