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