For those who thought that AMD is done with the Radeon HD 7000 series we have some fresh news. As it turns out, AMD has decided to launch its Radeon HD 7730, probably as a slower version of HD 7750.

I said probably, because there’s not much of a verified data coming from the source. In fact, the card is so ‘new’ that even the GPU-Z database doesn’t recognize it (usually the support is added few days ahead of the launch). It’s worth noting that this story is somehow related to the rumors about another HD 7600 card, back from March (story here). It was believed that the card would be named as HD 7650, with a special edition named HD 7730 for Asian market. Well, I assume this is exactly what happened here, only I don’t see any information about the HD 7650.

AMD Radeon HD 7730 Specifications

The Radeon HD 7730, as reported by the GPU-Z is equipped with 1GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit interface. I would be very careful while trying to determine what GPU does this card use. However it quite possible we are looking at an another 28nm Cape Verde model. The GPU clock is 800 MHz, whereas the memory is clocked at 1125 MHz (4500 MHz effective). As far as the clocks are detailed, we have a perfect match for a Radeon HD 7750 1GB card, which was ditched not that long ago. So maybe they just changed the name? There are clearly more questions that answers. The new MSI card looks identical to HD 7750. In fact, it even has the same display outputs and the same PCB layout.

AMD Radeon HD 7730 Performance

Moving forward to the performance. This card is clearly slower than HD 7750. Although in comparison to HD 6670 the scores almost doubled. It’s an interesting move from AMD. While their opponent is creating more high-end models, the Red Team is doing exactly the opposite. The HD 7750 1GB still goes for sale at $90 price point, meaning this card has to be cheaper.
