MSI Radeon HD 7730 Surfaces in China

An MSI branded version of the Radeon HD 7730 has evidently gone on sale in China and has been unofficially benchmarked by Coolaler.com user “Toppc.” The Radeon HD 7730 seems to be based on AMD’s 28 nm “Cape Verde” architecture, features 448 stream processors based on the Graphics CoreNext architecture, 16 ROPs and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 128-bit memory.

The graphics card features a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a memory clock of 1,125 MHz (4.50 GHz GDDR5-effective). With these specifications in mind, we can speculate that the HD 7730 is a budget offering that may be intended to compete with Nvidia’s GeForce GT 640. However, it is still unknown as to whether the graphics card will have a global release and what its retail price will be.

    Stop making new GPUs... HD 7790, HD 7870 XT, and now a HD 7730? What's next, HD 7710?

    More GDDR5 goodness is always good. It will kill the 640s DDR3. I think this is too soon though.

    Isn't the 7750 already priced around the 640?
