TPU spreads word that AMD is about to launch the Radeon HD 7730, a new product to fill the gap between the Radeon HD 7670 and the Radeon HD 7750. Based on the 28nm Cape Verde GPU, this chip reportedly has 448 stream processors, 28 TMUs, 16 ROPs, a 128-bit memory bus, and 1GB GDDR5 memory.
Head over to TPU to check out some benchmark results of the 7730.
An MSI-branded HD 7730 is already doing rounds in the Chinese local market, indicating the SKU is designed for retail, and not just the OEM channel. The MSI card features 800 MHz core clock speed, with its memory clocked at 1125 MHz (4.50 GHz GDDR5-effective). With the HD 7730, AMD could also be going after NVIDIA's GeForce GT 640. It remains to be seen if the HD 7730 is a global product. The MSI card features retailer stickers from Taiwan-based retailers.
