MSI PCX 5750 Review
The MSI PCX 5750 is built on MSI’s customary red colored PCB. It’s roughly the same size as the GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, the card that the PCX 5750 is based off.
There are no memory sinks on any of the PCX 5750′s memory chips, a common trend amongst mid-ranged cards lately since the memory used in this segment runs significantly cooler than what we see in the higher end markets.
The MSI PCX 5750 uses Samsung K4D261638F-TC36 memory chips, running at an effective speed of 500MHz.
The card’s fan is smaller than most PCX 5750 cards but in turn runs quietly, a feature that is lacking in many of the graphics cards that are currently on the market.
As you can see from the picture above, the card does not require the extra six pin power connector that we’ve seen the high end PCI Express cards use.
Unfortunately for those looking to build an SLI rig in the next few months, the PCX 5750 is currently the only NVIDIA based PCI Express graphics card that does not have an MIO port, the port required to hook two cards up in SLI.
And finally the card has the standard VGA, S-Video, and DVI outputs.
