    TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, introduced the Go! Green series of products earlier this year. Now, PowerColor has taken the series to a new level by adding the HD5750 to its lineup.

    Being green is as much a corporate responsibility as much as it is up to individuals. That’s why PowerColor developed a series of products that consume less power—thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emissions, while providing the gaming performance gamers have come to expect from PowerColor video cards.

    [​IMG]

    This offer of the ultimate gaming performance while consuming less power, is unique to the Go! Green series and now with the addition of the HD5750 series, it aims to deliver the same gaming performance as the reference version but without any extra power consumption even under load. High-level performance and low power consumption can co-exist without compromise.

    “Less power equals less carbon produced. That is why we developed the Go! Green series in the first place,” says Ted Chen, TUL CEO. “The PowerColor Go! Green HD5750 is an industry milestone—not only delivering outstanding performance in a silent gaming environment, but also save energy. We lead the way when it comes to developing new and innovative products and this cements our place at the head of the class.”

    So I'm guessing these aren't good overclockers.

    Lovely, but where are the specs and pictures?

    I was thinking the same thing. All they say is consume less power and green a couple of times without explaining specs or how they are going green.

    Nobody has the card's pics yet :(

    It's an HD 5750 that doesn't have/need a 6-pin power input.

    Based on their previous "Go! Green" designs, I'm going to say that you are correct on that point. Also, I would expect a silent cooler design...

    I said this would happen, the HD5700 series lends itself to "Green" editions very well. I'd be nice to see an HD5770 without a PCI-E power connector also. Of course they would have to reduce voltages and probably clocks to do that with the HD5770, while the HD5750 can probably keep stock clocks and probably stock voltages.

    According to the techpowerup review, the Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 only ever took 85w at its maximum load which is only 10w shy of the 75w maximum the PCIex16 slot can provide. I can easily see either an underclock and a the lack of fan could easily pushing this card beneath 75w.

    And even then, that 85w was under conditions that a card would normally never see in regular usage.

    I'm currently waiting for my flat's old CRT TV to blow up (it's oh-so close). When it does and we replace it with HD TV goodness I'll be building a nice little casual-gaming HTPC.

    This here will be a definite contender for GPU. Ooo err.

    "u2konline" alert, this card does look interesting but it won't match its original since its a low powered version but it has same specs as the original but uses less power and won't be able to clock really high?

    It won't match the original 5750 in almost all likelihood, its just not possible but we can expect performance inbetween the 9800 GT and the GTS 250 or 4830 and the 4850 which is mighty impressive for a video card with no 6pin.

    I actually like the GO Green method they are using. I want to be more green myself and I could see me getting this card. Even the gaming I do is by no means using the full advantage of my GPU I have now.

    Looks like they might be able to do it simply by using less RAM chips and change the PCB design. Fanless also helps.
    The reference 5770/50s have 8 chips while they only need 4.
    There is also good chance that this can be a 512MB card.

    Is'nt so really hard to chop off 10Watts of power. Even tho overclocking would be a bigger problem on most budget motherboards , (Better boards can even supply more then 75W up to 100W) this does not look like a really inventive card nor design.

    The article said the card would be passively cooled which I think is the most interesting feature. The only problem is we have no pictures of what the card looks like!

    it says 1GB on the box (of course, box can be wrong/misleading..)

    What I mean is they can make a 512MB variant and sell them for even cheaper. :p

    Provided that your motherboard is capable of providing more than the standard 75W there's no reason to expect this card not to OC well as PowerColor will be using low power binned dice for these cards.
