    In an attempt to plug a hole in its product stack between the Radeon HD 7670 and the Radeon HD 7750, AMD could launch a new Radeon HD 7700 series SKU, the HD 7730. Based on the 28 nm "Cape Verde" silicon, the chip could feature 448 stream processors based on the Graphics CoreNext architecture, 28 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 1 GB of memory.

    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.

    The source put the card through a few tests.

    The printed package seems English, with stickers added for Chinese.

    On a China only SKU wouldn't they print Chinese?

    hopefully it is worldwide because AMD has nothing to offer in the sub $100 category anymore.

    The main question is, do we really need a new card for every 2 dollar price difference just to justify a "new segment coverage" ? C'mon, they are getting a bit ridicilous with 500 models with micronic differences. Make 6 models and place those well on the market, not 500 so the cusomers have no clue what they are buying in the end...

    Radeon HD 7750's are <$100 all over Newegg... Some down to $75 after MIR.

    GPUZ shows as 6670? Re-branded 6670?

    As some folks have indicated in their comments, yes the market does desire discrete GPU cards in a wide range of prices including sub $100. Most people have a budget that they desire to work within. Having enough choices to meet most people's budget can significantly increase sales and profits.

    I'd rather pick a used last gen model than spend $100 on this :eek:

    Anywhere around that price point i still think it's better to get a 2nd hand card. More bang/$$$

    IMHO of course :eek:

    There could be other factors at play, like physical size & power consumption. But performance...

    You get P1400-1800, depending on RAM performance, out of an AMD A10 5800K, unless you can CFX this GPU with the A10 it seems a bit pointless to release this just before Intel makes it even more obselete.

    I was just about to say something like this. Really, every $50 dollars a new card would be sufficient.

    This may be a crossfire matched card for future 6800k apu owners.

    Why not just sell the 7670 with GDDR5 memory? Unless AMD has stacks of faulty Cape Verdes or they plan to phase out the 7670 (6670) I don't see the logic behind this.

    i have a hunch that this thing is based on Bonaire instead, with around half of the 7790 chip disabled instead of Cape Verde. And it might be intended to get rid of the 3 year old 5670/6670/7670 providing better performance and consumption.

    I think they intend to phase out the 40nm chips for a number of reasons (more chips per wafer means more money per area of die for the 28nm chips; 6570/6670 likely to be too close in performance to upcoming haswell and kaveri gpus; newer 28nm GCN chip might xfire better with richland and kaveri apus).
