ASUS has relaunched an older graphics card for enthusiasts who are willing to buy something—anything—to quench their GPU thirst amid an ongoing graphics card shortage that doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon.
As spotted by leaker momomo_us, ASUS’ arguably ancient GeForce GT 730 has resurfaced on the manufacturer’s official website. This is a graphics card that features the GK208, a GPU leveraging NVIDIA’s nearly decade-old Kepler architecture.
The GeForce GT 730’s core specifications include 384 CUDA Cores, 2 GB of 5 Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 64-bit memory interface, and a boost clock of up to 927 MHz. Four HDMI 1.4b ports with HDCP 2.2 are available, supporting resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160.
ASUS GeForce GT 730 Overview:
- 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.
- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.
While nobody should be buying this for modern games, ASUS’ GeForce GT 730 might be worthy for small-form-factor builds thanks to its smaller size and minimal power requirements (300-watt PSU recommended). The graphics card is primarily being marketed for quiet multi-monitor setups.
