BIOS - Asus EAH5750 Formula

Some of the card's inner workings can be revealed by taking a look at the BIOS. We used GPU-Z to extract the board's BIOS and Radeon BIOS Editor to examine its contents.


Clock settings. Boot/3D setting in red, idle in green, UVD in yellow.

Clock speeds of 750/1150MHz in 3D, 157/1000MHz idle, and 400/900MHz when UVD is at work were confirmed using GPU-Z.


Fan settings.

According to the BIOS, the stock fan's speed rises slowly, running at 30% until the core temperature reaches 45°C and then increases linearly until 109°C when it reaches its maximum speed.

MP3 SOUND RECORDINGS

These recordings were made with a high resolution, lab quality, digital recording system inside SPCR's own 11 dBA ambient anechoic chamber, then converted to LAME 128kbps encoded MP3s. We've listened long and hard to ensure there is no audible degradation from the original WAV files to these MP3s. They represent a quick snapshot of what we heard during the review.

These recordings are intended to give you an idea of how the product sounds in actual use — one meter is a reasonable typical distance between a computer or computer component and your ear. The recording contains stretches of ambient noise that you can use to judge the relative loudness of the subject. Be aware that very quiet subjects may not be audible — if we couldn't hear it from one meter, chances are we couldn't record it either!

The recording starts with 5~10 seconds of room ambiance, followed by 5~10 seconds of the VGA test system without a video card installed, and then the actual product's noise at various levels. For the most realistic results, set the volume so that the starting ambient level is just barely audible, then don't change the volume setting again.
