AMD Radeon HD 7730 “Cape Verde LE” GPU Tested – Custom Models Unveiled

AMD or should we say their add-in-board partners have released a new Radeon HD
7730 GPU which is based on the Cape Verde LE die. Its been a few days
since manufacturers such as MSI, Sapphire, Powercolor and XFX had
released their Radeon HD 7730 graphic cards and the first performance preview has appeared on

The Radeon HD 7730 ws supposed to be limited to the APAC region but
its availability has been extended to Europe by XFX. The card that was
tested is from manufacturer MSI and is codenamed R7730-1GD5V1. The
graphic card features 384 stream processors with 16 ROPs and 24 TMUs
and is essentially a cut down variant of the Cape Verde GPU hence called
“Cape Verde LE”. Its still based on the new GCN architecture featuring
four ACE modules and six compute units. The card comes with 1 GB and 2
GB VRAM running across a 128-bit GDDR5 interface. Clocks are maintained
at 800 MHz for core and 4.5 GHz (1125 MHz) effective clock speed for
memory. The memory pumps out a bandwidth of 72.0 GB/s and has a total power draw of 47W hence no need for a power connector.

The card being a low-end model has a short PCB design
and features nothing fancy other than the propeller blade cooling
solution from MSI. XFX, Powercolor, Sapphire have their own custom coolers equipped on the Radeon HD
7730. The performance is said to be 75% of a HD 7750 hence making it
even slower than the GeForce GTX 640 DDR3 model, the GDDR5 model ends up
faster. The card would be priced around $59 – $69 which makes sense of
the performance since this would be aimed at HTPC or media solution
