Less-known video card company called Yeston has just launched a custom designed AMD Radeon HD 7750 video card, but there is something very strange regarding the new product. The PCB is really short, which makes us think this is built for small cases, but the cooling system is quite large and occupies two adjacent slots.
The new card is powered by AMD
’s “Cape Verde” graphics processing unit that comes with a very small 123-square millimeter die size, containing 1.5 billion transistors.
The default GPU
speed is 800 MHz when working in full load 3D mode. In 2D mode, the frequency of the GPU will drop to a low 300 MHz.
The 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory is clocked at 4500 MHz default when in 3D mode, but it drops to 600 MHz when working in 2D.
The memory and the GPU
work on a tight 128-bit BUS, so playing games with very high resolutions will be a little less rewarding.
The “Cape Verde” GPU is part of AMD
’s GCN architecture and comes with much improved GPU compute performance.
This Radeon HD 7750 GPU has 512 unified shader processors, 32 texturing units and 16 ROPs, while the “full” “Cape Verde” comes with 640 shaders and 40 texturing units.
The GPU is quite modest in its power requirements, and the HD 7750 mounted on Yeston’s new card clearly needs less energy
than a “full” “Cape Verde” on a Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition
Usually, the HD 7750 doesn’t come with an extra power connector, but Yeston has decided to fit the new card with one.
The cooling system has just two heatpipes and a rather large cooling fan that seems to have a 90-millimeter diameter and eleven blades.
The manufacturer only used solid capacitors
on its new card, and the 4-phase VRM is completely covered with aluminum heatsinks.
Considering that the GPU is reportedly
clocked at 950 MHz instead of the reference default of 800 Mhz and the memory
comes at 5 GHz instead of the usual 4.5 Ghz, we understand the necessity for the large cooling
