Graphics card shortages are so severe that MSI has launched a new GeForce GT 730
We have now reached a point where graphics cards are so hard to find, consumers are more relaxed about which model they end up buying as long as they buy one. But there are limits to that, and MSI is really pushing them back with its latest version of graphics card.
As Tom’s Hardware reports, MSI has just launched a GeForce GT 730 graphics card. Nvidia launched the GeForce 700 series in 2013 using Fermi, Kepler, and then Maxwell architectures. It’s definitely not a card you use to play the latest games, but it does offer an inexpensive way to acquire some features that your on-board GPU doesn’t have.
The MSI GeForce GT 730 (N730K-2GD3H / LPV1) operates at 902 MHz, uses 384 CUDA cores and includes 2 GB of DDR3 memory operating at 1600 MHz. It only consumes 23W of power and can therefore be used with a 300W power supply. It also supports DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and display resolutions up to 4,096 by 2,160. Three displays are supported using the card’s DVI, HDMI, and D-sub ports.

So far, the new card has only been listed as available in Japan where it will cost around $ 42. Whether they end up being officially sold in the United States may depend on the desperate state of the graphics card market and MSI’s ability to produce them in sufficient quantities given all the other demands on the production lines. at the moment.
