The Radeon HD 7730 was an entry-level graphics card by AMD, launched in May 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Cape Verde graphics processor, in its Cape Verde LE variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Cape Verde graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 123 mm² and 1,500 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 640 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon HD 7730 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 384 shading units, 24 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. AMD has placed 1,024 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 800 MHz, memory is running at 1125 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the AMD Radeon HD 7730 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 47 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. Radeon HD 7730 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 59 US Dollars.
