MSI Releases Its Radeon HD 7730

By - Source: WCCF Tech | B 26 comments

MSI has released its Radeon HD 7730 graphics card that is set to hit shelves soon.

Silently, MSI has released the Radeon HD 7730 graphics card. The card is aimed at budget-conscious buyers, so even though it comes with a limited feature set, it has a very competitive price.

The card will be based on the Cape Verde core; therefore, it has 512 stream processors, 32 TMUs, and 16 ROPs. The GPU core runs at 800 MHz and has no boost speed. As we've come to expect from such budget cards, the MSI Radeon HD 7730 only has 1 GB of GDDR memory, and it runs over a 128-bit memory interface at 4.5 GHz. Due to the conservative specifications though, the card is able to run off only the power that the PCIe port provides (75 W), and has a TDP of only 50 W.

External connectivity would be taken care of by a single Dual-link DVI port, an HDMI port and a DisplayPort.

The card will be priced between $64.99 and $79.99; therefore, it doesn't take part in the Never Settle Bundle promotion. Only the HD 7770 and above graphics cards come with the promotional material.

    Nice dinky little card, if you don't have much money, then this could be the way to go, although I think if it were me and I was poor, it'd have to be at least a HD 7750.

    Not bad at all for an HTPC, I like the idea. I may buy one for my old computer and turn it into an HTPC, especially since it has a low TDP and only requires the PCI lane for power.

    question is, can this thing crossfire with Trinity or maybe Richland APUs?

    Seems like a good price to replace the aging HD5670/6670

    While there is a narrow price gap between the HD6670 (~ $50) and the HD7750 (~ $90), unless this card drops at the 65- to 70-dollar range of its speculated pricing, the proven and readily-available HD7750 is simply a better buy.
    During sales/promotions, as well as through rebates, HD7750's have lately been available for between 75 and 80 dollars. That's what makes me feel this HD7730 should be priced at roughly $65. If it's any higher, a patient buyer who seeks out the best deal (or anyone who bothers to use pcpartpicker) can get an HD7750 for nearly even money.

    Attractive price point. I assume it offers performance comparable to a 6850?

    No. HD7770 is comparable to the HD6850. This one most likely will perform somewhere between the 5670/6670 and the 5750 (probably closer to the 5750)
