ASUS has resurrected the GeForce GT 710, an ancient graphics card powered by NVIDIA’s 2012 Kepler GPU microarchitecture. While this would be a terrible option for modern games, it could be a good fit for system builders who are looking for a GPU that can power a simple, multi-monitor setup geared toward general productivity – the GT710-4H-SL-2GD5 features four HDMI ports, takes up just one PCI-E x1 slot, and is passively cooled.
Specification-wise, we’re looking at just 192 CUDA Cores, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, and an engine/memory clock of 954 MHz/5012 MHz. Again, this is a bad idea for gaming, but the card is good enough to output 4K @ 60 Hz (although that drops to 30 Hz if more than one monitor is connected).
- 4x HDMI Ports enable multi-monitor productivity on up to 4 displays.
- Single-slot Design fits in small chassis and leaves room for additional PCIe devices.
- Passive Cooling keeps things quiet.
- Auto-Extreme Technology uses automation to enhance reliability.
- A 144-hour validation program puts cards through a series of stringent tests to ensure compatibility
- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.
This card has also gone through ASUS’s 144-hour validation program, which ensures it meets the company’s performance and reliability standsrds. “Performance and stress tests are run with the latest chart-topping titles like Fortnite, League of Legends, Overwatch, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” the company writes. “We also carry out reliability trials that include a 144-hour stability test and a series of 3DMark benchmarking runs to ensure the card performs well when pushed to the limits.”
