Cooling and Noise
XFX has put a big focus on their Double Dissipation cooling on all of the HD 7000 series video cards and when compared to stock cooling we have normally seen good results. We put every card that comes into the office under load and measure both its cooling performance as well as its noise output under this load. As always we went to FurMark for these results. FurMark puts such an unnatural load on all cards that you know that the results we see here are higher than anything it will do in game. Consider it a worst case scenario.
As you can see in the chart above, although the R7750 did a good job keeping things cool the silent Sapphire card did outperform. This is due partly to the R7750’s overclock but considering it has two fans to the Sapphire cards zero fans I would have like to of seen a little better. Of course the size of the Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate’s heatsink would most likely keep just about anything cool.
