The Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC has been around for some time already and while I have reviewed loads of GPUs this year, I still find myself going back to this card. Yes, the RTX 4090 and 4080 provide the best performance you can ever dream of but what about those gamers who are simply looking for 1440p performance? Well, in the market saturated by high-voltage cards and 8K performance, the Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC offers some incredible value for money and might still be one of the best investments you can make.
Watch the Gigabyte RX 6750 Gaming OC review below
It is only natural to compare this RX 6750 XT to its NVIDIA counterpart, the RTX 3070. For the most part, the card falls in line with its performance and spec. This is Gigabyte’s OC model meaning it comes overclocked out of the box to provide slightly more performance than standard RX 6750 models. It has a base clock of 2283MHz, a Game Clock of 2533MHz and can be boosted up to 2623MHz.
When it comes to its performance, it packs 12GB of DDR6 RAM with a 192-bit memory bus and can pump out 432GB/s of bandwidth. You’ll also need a suggested power supply of 600W in order to use this card and its 2560 shading units, 40 Compute Cores and 40 RT Cores.
The Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC packs a simple design but it gets the job done. It looks very similar to Gigabyte’s other OC GPUs. In fact, if you put it next to the 4090 or 4080, it looks like a tiny version of those cards.
The card comes packed with three large fans and includes 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and 2 DisplayPort 1.4a ports. Altogether, the Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC will set you back R13,000 and aims to produce 1440p performance across the latest games.
I also need to stress that in the world of oversized GPUs, I still really enjoy this Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC model. It fits into my PC without any fancy mounts or cables and takes us back to a simpler time when cables were melting, boards weren’t sagging and you could actually close your PC case without squashing the card against the door.
This content on this Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC is based on a custom-built PC that includes a range of hardware. The full specs include the following:
- Cooler Master Cosmos C700M Case
- Gigabyte Aorus X670E Master DDR5 Motherboard
- Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC
- 32GB (2 x 16GB) Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 Memory 4800MT/s
- AMD Ryzen 7700X CPU
- Cooler Master ML360RGB AIO
- Cooler Master 2000W PSU
I have used this GPU for a few months already and loved how versatile it was for my gaming setup. Mainly because at the time, before I had to completely rearrange my PC case to accommodate a review 4080, I used this RX 6750 mounted to the side of my Cooler Master Cosmos 700 using a riser cable. However, in general, this card offers a stress-free installation approach. You just slot it in, tighten some screws and you’re good to go.
The card features some RGB on it that sees the Gigabyte logo illuminate depending on your settings. Of course, this can all be tweaked on the Aura RGB app. I also have a Gigabyte Master X670E Motherboard so it syncs to the same lighting system on that board too.
When it comes to the performance of this card, AMD is definitely aiming for this to be its 1440p card which is why it is so great. 1440p gaming is a lot more popular these days than 4K. Sure, people play in 4K but gamers who haven’t jumped to the 4K TV or monitor will likely look for a card that supports the next best thing.
I ran some performance tests using this card and the results are pretty great. This Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC definitely achieves what it sets out to do by providing a solid 1440p experience across the most modern games. Most titles I tested managed to achieve over 60FPS when running at 1440p on medium to high settings.
Some games even managed to surprise me with high frames at 4K in certain situations. This was clear in titles like Watch Dogs Legion with ray tracing disabled of course. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was a great showcase of the card especially. It hit close to 60FPS at 4K with the highest possible settings. Cyberpunk 2077 was the lowest recorded test on the card but it was running at 4K with ray-tracing off. It averaged around 45FPS. This is still impressive for those who want to enjoy 4K and think 45FPS is enough to get away with.
Here are the gaming tests I performed.
FPS is average
- Cyberpunk 2077
- 4K Max/RT off – 45FPS
- 1440p Max/RT off – 52FPS
- 1080p Max/RT off – 75FPS
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- 4K Max – 55FPS
- 1440p – 101FPS
- 1080p – 141FPS
- Watch Dogs Legion
- 4K Max – 55FPS
- 1440p Max – 107FPS
- 1080p Max 150FPS
- Metro Exodus
- 4K Max – 40FPS
- 1440p Max – 67FPS
- 1080p Max – 90FPS
I then also benchmarked some programs designed to put this GPU to the test. The scores showed that this Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC falls in line above the RTX 2070 SUPER and below the 3070 Mobile in some cases. However, most of the time these scores were less than a hundred above and below.
- 3DMark Time Spy 1080p
- Overall – 13102
- Graphics – 13390
- 3DMark Firestrike 1080p
- Overall -37452
- Graphics – 31251
- 3DMark Port Royale
- Overall – 6261
You can see from all these tests that the Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC offers some decent performance for its cost. Most of the time, all 1440p games I tested either reached close to 60FPS or went way above. I could even get away with some 4K games at times.
The Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC also handles its power and heating well too. During tests, I never measured beyond 67C and the cores were maxing out at 2623MHz. The fans reached a max speed of 1250 RPM. The cooling on this card is exceptional.
Overall, this Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC is a fantastic card. I have used it for a few months now and it really achieves everything I would expect from it. Sure, some games give me a hard time when I go a bit graphics-mad and toggle everything up to the max. However, the moment I drop the resolution down to 1440p, it all calms down. That is exactly what this card is made for and it does a great job at that.
So if you’re on a budget and don’t have the excess cash to splurge on a 40-series GPU, this Gigabyte RX 6750 XT Gaming OC checks all the boxes and will likely remain relevant for another two years or so.
