EVGA Launches GT 710 Range



/ 3 years ago

EVGA GT 710

The majority of media attention and interest from enthusiasts revolves around higher-end graphics card solutions and observing the horsepower improvements between each generation. As a result, it’s quite easy to overlook cheaper models designed for the casual gaming market or media applications. Today, EVGA unveiled their new range based on NVIDIA’s GT 710 chip. The GPU features a base clock of 924MHz, 64-bit memory interface with a clock of 1800 MHz and total bandwidth reaching 14.4GB/s. Additionally, the GT 710 contains 192 CUDA cores and comes in either a 1GB or 2GB configuration.

While the GT 710 is fairly weak compared to other discrete GPUs, it still manages to outperform integrated graphic chips by a decent margin. Here we can see the 3D gaming performance in 3DMark compared between the Intel HD Graphics on a G3220 CPU, and GT 710. Clearly, it’s not going to run anything demanding at high resolutions, but there is a noticeable boost.

EVGA is producing a total of 6 models to suit various chassis designs and user preferences:

2GB Memory:

  • 02G-P3-2717-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 2GB (Single Slot, Dual DVI)
  • 02G-P3-2713-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 2GB (Single Slot, Low Profile)
  • 02G-P3-2712-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 2GB (Dual Slot, Low Profile, Passive)

1GB Memory:

  • 01G-P3-2716-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 1GB (Single Slot, Dual DVI)
  • 01G-P3-2711-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 1GB (Single Slot, Low Profile)
  • 01G-P3-2710-KR = EVGA GeForce GT 710 1GB (Dual Slot, Low Profile, Passive)

The passive cooled options will be an excellent choice when creating a silent HTPC build. Also, I quite like the overall design, and support for DVI-D, D-Sub and HDMI 1.4a. Sadly, there’s no information regarding pricing and I expect it to be in line with other manufacturers creating custom GT 710 GPUs. I’m intrigued to see how it copes with certain 3D games when the graphical details are kept to a minimum. Whatever the case, it’s an interesting launch and we might consider reviewing one of the cards very soon
