The graphics card market is in such depressing state that MSI has opted to reintroduce a GeForce GPU that originally debuted in 2014. Leveraging green team’s nearly decade-old Kepler architecture, the MSI GeForce GT 730 is a low-profile PCIe 2.0 graphics card featuring 384 CUDA Cores, a boost clock of 902 MHz, 2 GB of DDR3 memory operating at a memory speed of 1,600 MHz, and a power consumption rating of 23 watts. The timing of MSI’s GeForce GT 730 resurrection is amusing, being that NVIDIA confirmed this week that it would be ending support for Kepler cards in just a few months.

Custom GeForce GT 730 models start at $77.98 in the U.S. It’s sad when even a seven-year-old graphics card is selling for outrageous prices. Alas, that’s the current status of the graphics card market, and we’ll just have to live with it. The MSI GeForce GT 730 is expected to sell for 4,565 yen (~$41.64) with tax included in Japan — a price we’ll probably never see in the U.S.
