Sapphire Announces the HD 7750 ULTIMATE

SAPPHIRE Technology has just introduced a passively cooled card in its new HD 7700 series - the SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE is the first totally silent card to embody all the features of this new generation of products based on the revolutionary new graphics GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture from AMD.

The SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE is the first card in this generation to use a passive heatpipe and heatsink cooler to deliver totally silent cooling, and increased reliability as it has no mechanical moving parts. It shares all the features of the HD 7700 series and the highly acclaimed GCN graphics processing architecture making it ideal for HTPCs and any general purpose PC where operational noise needs to be kept to a minimum.


The SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE delivers excellent performance with core clocks of 800 MHz and 1 GB of DDR5 memory clocked at 1125 MHz (4.5 GB/s effective). It is believed to be the fastest passively cooled 128-bit graphics card on the market.

HDMI specifications have also increased in the HD 7000 series. Fast HDMI 1.4a supports Stereoscopic 3D with enhanced frame rates of 60 Hz per eye - 120Hz total. It is also ready for the next generation of 4K displays that can be driven from a single high speed input of 3GHz HDMI 1.4a or DisplayPort 1.2 HBR2.

APP Acceleration is the name given to the enhanced performance of a wide range of applications using the stream processing capabilities and specific hardware features of the graphics architecture. The HD 7000 series has been optimised for this type of task. Typical applications include Video encoding and decoding, compression and multiplexing for media distribution, gaming or video conferencing. APP acceleration can also enhance everyday tasks such as Internet browsing, Office applications and file compression with supported software suites.

Working or gaming with multiple monitors is becoming increasingly popular, and the SAPPHIRE HD 7700 series supports this with AMD Eyefinity, now in its second generation. The SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE has Dual link DVI, HDMI and a single DisplayPort output, supporting up to four monitors. In addition, the SAPPHIRE HD 7700 series cards can simultaneously output multiple, independent audio streams allowing the correct audio content to be associated with different applications on different screens.

The HD 7000 series is the third generation of DirectX 11 compatible solutions from the graphics division of AMD - formerly ATI. The new SAPPHIRE HD 7700 series is ready for DirectX 11.1 and the new Windows 8 operating system as well as delivering all the features of the current DirectX 11 such as DirectCompute11 and multi threaded communications with the CPU. Communication with the host PC is optimised with the implementation of the latest high speed PCI-Express Gen3.0 interface, and multiple cards can be used to further enhance performance in CrossFireX mode on a suitably specified mainboard.

The SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE and other HD 7700 series products are now available through SAPPHIRE’s established channel and etail partners.

Wonder about Crossfiring this with Trinity in a small form factor case :D

Do we have info yet on Trinity Crossfire options? I don't remember any offhand.

I'd pop off that random bit of plastic. Not only does it look bad but it blocks airflow. Did they really think someone would chose not to buy it because it didn't have some cheap plastic slapped on it?

Silent until you add the extra case fans needed to keep it cool. :roll:

I doubt it, the card uses less than 50w when gaming :toast:

You just need to create a small airflow inside the case so that the heat doesn't build-up. Even those low-RPM fans will do just fine and are very much inaudible.

Saying you can "game" with this card is a bit of a ... stretch.

(it's slower than the GTX 550 Ti and barely matches the HD 5770)

Looks like closer to 450 in some benches, then higher in others. You could "game" with it...but likely trim some effects if it got bogged down.

Why I'm interested if this is one of the ones that would link with Trinity. Might be able to push it up to being a bit more decent in that setup. But that depends if AMD gets the Crossfire to work properly on it. Llano wasn't that great and had a lot of issues early on.

The rumors say 7670 is the max for the x-fire on it. I would love it if the 7700 did work. That would be unreal performance for the money and power consumption.

Don't be so daft, I can game on my E450 APU, 5770 performance is MORE than adequate for entry level gaming. So many graphics snobs about these days.

Remember when they finally release the GTS 450 in September 2010, Nvidias’ tag line they tried to instill was something like "best at 1680x" though it was less than a 5770 and used more power.

That was all base around their marketing campaign "Customized for Gamers 'LAN Party Pwning'… play on 17" to 22" monitors with resolutions of 1280x1024 to 1680x1050. NVIDIA designed the GTS 450 GPU to be able to play at these popular resolutions" because by 2010 Steam shows that’s what most gamers playing. Thier words.

Good thing AMD had the 5770 in that market a whole year earlier. :roll:
