AMD Radeon HD 7730: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 7730 sales 1 May 2013 at a recommended price of $59 . This is a GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 72 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 47 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.11% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
