XFX Releases Two New Radeon HD 7730 Models
If you are looking for a discrete GPU for, say, your home theater PC, then XFX might have what you need. XFX has just released its newest addition to its portfolio, the XFX Radeon HD 7730. The new XFX Radeon HD 7730 is based on AMD's 28 nm Carpe Verde silicon, and will come in two versions; one with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory and one with 2 GB of DDR3 memory. The 1 GB version will sport a 800 MHz core clock and a 4.5 GHz memory clock, while the 2 GB version will have a 800 MHz core clock and a 1.3 GHz memory clock. Both cards will have Dual-Link DVI-D, HDMI and VGA connections.
The cooling used on the cards is an XFX Patented Duratec IP-5X dust free fan and XFX Ghost Thermal technology that allows for low profile cooling, which should please most HTPC builders, who often opt for mini-ITX cases that have little internal space.
The cards are expected to cost between $70-75, and should hit the market soon.
