Introduction to the Gigabyte Radeon HD 5750 Silent Cell
For most of us we cannot picture med and high range video card without any noise. If you think about the early days of the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 the noise was unbearable. Then updates to the Catalyst Control Panel made it possible to lower the fan to a tolerable level making for a more subtle environment. Time had come and gone. Video cards aren’t as loud as they once were. But there people that want good performance from a graphic card and no sound whatsoever. Reasons are plentiful why someone would want this and it begins with HTPC rigs and ending with just wanting a quiet PC.
But can you have silent and good performance and have no noise? Well, as of last a few companies have put out Radeon HD 5750 cards with passive cooling. And today, we have a Gigabyte model in house titled the Silent Cell. That is right with the Silent Cell you can get the performance you want from a fan-less GPU without having to resort to the lowly levels of the HD 5450 and HD5570.
The benefits of having a video card of this nature does mean you do get performance and silent but you also get all the features and options that come with having a based on the Juniper chipset. That would include eyefinity support, crossfire support as well as DirectX 11 support. Granted all this can be had for about $140.
