Do you still remember the NVIDIA GeForce GT710? A budget offer originally launched in 2016, which cost between 35 and 40 €, offered 1 or 2GB of memory, as well as two HDMI outputs capable of supporting 4K resolution. Well … Now we will have the same exact graphics card, with four HDMI 4K outputs!
NVIDIA has released the GeForce GT710 again! A € 50 graphics card?
Therefore, the new GT710 has already appeared on the ASUS website, and like the original, it will bring 192 CUDA processing cores based on the Kepler architecture of 2015. However, the GPU frequency will stay at 954 MHz, while the memory will reach 5012 MHz.
However, there are some changes, as we now have 2GB of GDDR5 memory instead of DDR3 memory. Which turns out to be strange, given that the industry is abandoning this type of memory completely, due to its scarcity and ever higher price. (It is likely that the architecture does not support GDDR6 memory)
Having said all of this, although the memory is faster, this will have little impact on the performance of this graphics card. After all, the big news here is the implementation of 2 new HDMI outputs, completely removing the old DVI and VGA.
Thus, the ‘nova’ GT710 will be able to power a single 4K monitor at 60Hz, or four 4K monitors at 30Hz, without the need for any type of cooling. In other words, it is an extremely quiet card, since it does not have any fan for ‘cooling’.
What's NVIDIA's idea with all this?
In fact, when NVIDIA launched the GT710 in 2016, it said it was a 10x faster solution than any integrated graphics card. Something that was not quite true at that time… So, it is likely that the focus will be on the business market, to give life to 4 high resolution monitors simultaneously.
As for the price, we are talking about something that should hit the market for ~ 50 €.

Since I was very young I became interested in computers and technology in general, I had my first PC at 10 and at 15 I built my first tower, since then I never stopped. Whatever technology is, I'm in the front row to find out more.
