HIS 7750 iCooler Detailed Features

In this section we shall take an in depth look at the HIS HD 7750 iCooler video card and see what makes it tick.

With the fan and shroud removed we can get a better look at the aluminum heatsink. There isn't really much to it but as you will see later in the article it performs very well indeed.

The 75mm fan utilised in the iCooler heatsink assembly is a very low power fan from arctic cooling. Many AIB partners claim that their HSF fans are quiet but most generally aren't when the temperatures start to rise, but this little baby stays virtually silent not only while on auto but also at 100% speed.

With the cooler assembly fully removed we can get a better look at the board, The overall layout of all the components is a little different than what we are used to on high end video cards. The compact layout has moved the power phase/VRM section to the top of the PCB. Advances in nano-scale manufacturing technologies mean that 1GB of memory can be squeezed into a much smaller package, here we have only four memory modules whereas only last year 1GB video cards would have needed eight. All in all the PCB looks good with no real waste of space and the soldering quality is of a very high standard

The back of the PCB is utilised mainly for resistors and the soldering quality is excellent for such tiny components. Man loses the war to the machine when it comes to detailed work like this. These days you don't generally see RAM on the reverse side of a 1GB video card design thanks to the smaller manufacturing process that allows more density in a smaller package.

The star of the show is of course the 28nm Cape Verde GPU, cramming 1500 million transistors into a 123mm² package. The HD 7750 GPU is PCI-E 3.0 compliant and features AMD's ZeroCore power technology that effectively powers down the GPU and its related components while your system is in an idle state.

The HIS HD 7750 iCooler uses 1GB of hynix H5GQ2H24MFR-TC2 memory divided between four modules, rated at 2.5GHz (5GHz effective) at 1.5V.

In the next section we will look at the main features and specifications of the HIS HD 7750 iCooler 1GB video card.

Your specs on the 550ti are wrong has the same amount cores as a 450 and not 256bit bus
