MSI Radeon HD 7730 Revealed

It looks like AMD is prepping a new lower-end graphics cards in their Radeon 7000 series. User Toppc from Coolaler forums has leaked images and well as benchmarks of a Radeon HD 7730 card from MSI. Not much is known about the specifications of the card just yet, but we do know the card is clocked at 800 MHz core and 1125 MHz memory clock. We would assume it is also running 1 GB of GDDR5 memory. No official word on what core this card is running, our guess is a cut down version of either the Bonaire XT chip or Cape Verde chip.

The card makes use of MSI’s single fan cooling solution with a circular heatsink that sits on top of the core. As far as output connections go you have DVI-L, HDMI and DisplayPort. There is no power connection as the card is powered only by the PCIe slot. The user on the forums compared the HD 7730 to the Radeon HD 6670. Here they are:
