Yeah, so you guys remember Kepler as one of NVIDIA's GPU architectures in the 700 series, well guess what? ASUS is breathing some life back into it with a GeForce GT 710.
The GT710-4H-SL-2GD5 has 192 shader processors based on that Kepler architecture with a GPU base clock of 954MHz. The new model has 2GB of GDDR5 memory and the same passive heat sink. An interesting feature is its quadruple HDMI ports, just one can drive 3840x2160 at 60Hz though, the rest is maxed out at 3840x2160 at 30Hz for multiple monitors.
- 4x HDMI Ports enable multi-monitor productivity on up to 4 displays.
- Single-slot Design fits in small chassis and leaves room for additional PCIe devices.
- Passive Cooling keeps things quiet.
- Auto-Extreme Technology uses automation to enhance reliability.
- A 144-hour validation program puts cards through a series of stringent tests to ensure compatibility
- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.
Hey, it could be handy for an HTPC as it is a passive and single slot, then again .. that's nothing a 100 Bucks APU can't fix either. I am sure there's a target demographic for this product series as otherwise, ASUS would not be releasing it. Asus has redesigned the card's PCB, in modern black appearance means and the GT 710 can only be used with full-height expansion slots.
BTW that gray cooling block that must tame the whopping top of 19 Watt. The GT710-4H-SL-2GD5 is expected to cost roughly 50 euros
