First of all, thanks a lot to HIS for giving us the opportunity to review this video card.

About HIS

HIS is a graphics card company that primarily builds ATI-based products. They are a Christian company as well. This is part of their company statement: HIS was established in 1987 with the mission to produce the highest quality graphic cards in the industry. Besides strong devotion to excellent products and services, HIS has been conducting business with the aim to "Glorifying God". Honesty and integrity are the two key principals of how HIS are conducted. Ethical business practice has been an everyday commitment to our clients, vendors, and investors. Most of us pick a video card based purely on chipset and price. It\'s good to see HIS is more than a typical ATI card manufacturer - they have a mission that CCG can agree with. Even so, this review is based on the quality of the product reviewed; no unnecessary bias has gone into the review process.

We ran the benchmarks using a 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional. Windows gave the 5750 a 6.0 rating in desktop and gaming graphics.  I no longer consider the Windows ratings to be valid since the 4670 got a 6.4 gaming score and it’s in last place on all the charts. All of these benchmarks are run at 1920x1200 wide screen resolution.  The Nvidia driver used is 195.62 and the ATI cards are using 9.12.


3DMark Vantage

These results were obtained using the performance test at the default resolution of 1280x1024. The 5750 surpasses the 8800GT by a healthy margin.


Unreal Tournament 3

The Unreal engine is known for its beauty and hunger for powerful video cards to run the latest games. For this benchmark we used UT3 version 2.1 (black edition).  Sound and Direct X 10 were enabled.  The 5750 beats the standalone 8800GT and is quite playable with an average 92 frames per second.



FarCry 2

The Dunia engine is what powered the African based FarCry 2 game. The detail and explosion effects are amazing. This benchmark would not run with antialiasing or anisotropic filtering enabled.  ATI cards seem to do well with this engine and the 5750 has a 10 frame lead over the 8800GT card here.  The 4770 is competitive with only being a Frame behind the 5750.


Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

This benchmark has antialiasing and anisotropic filtering set to 4X. The detail was set to High Quality and soft particles were disabled.  I was surprised to see the SLI didn’t affect the performance at all.


Half-Life 2

This engine is older and all the cards get great results here.  I was surprised to see the 4770 take a giant lead. Maximum quality was used, motion blur and bilinear filtering was enabled, antialiasing was disabled.


World in Conflict

We ran this benchmark with very high detail.  The graphics in this game look amazing.  With the frame rates in the 20’s it may be worth cranking the detail down a notch.


Crysis Warhead

The latest Crytek engine has been notorious for bring many systems down to their knees. These cards struggled. This benchmark was run under the Very High setting which is not recommended; even the GTX260 was in pain here.  Perhaps the GTX260 in SLI may be playable at this setting. 


Dirt 2

Dirt2 is one of the first games available offering Direct X 11 support.  If your card does not support DirectX 11 the game reverts to DirectX9.  All the results here are in Direct X 9 except for the one labeled DX11.  The benchmark race results vary so I don’t consider it extremely accurate.




The HIS HD5750 is a great card for around $140. It can handle many of the popular games out there and definitely holds its own against similarly priced Nvidia cards. If you plan on playing Crysis with it you\'ll have to turn the graphics down a notch or two. This is an excellent card choice for multimedia and HD movie watching. The built in HDMI adapter was a nice addition.   Dirt 2 and a gamer toolkit come bundled with the card as well.  There are two DVI ports and a VGA adapter too. If you\'re looking for a low budget gaming and multimedia card check out the HIS HD5750.
