ASUS Launch a “new” Variant of the 4-Year Old GT 710 GPU with Four 4K HDMI Ports

In a real blast from the past, Asus recently launched a “new” NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 variant. The GT710-4H-SL-2GD5, based on the GK208 GPU, for which Asus lists “GPU Tweak II” as a feature has one (and only one) highlight: it features four, 4K capable HDMI ports. This makes it easy to connect the GPU to multiple monitors if you have an office multi-monitor setup.

Keep in mind that this is one of the lowest-end graphics cards you can possibly get your hands on. The GK208 was NVIDIA’s baseline GPU for its Kepler lineup, with a maximum of 384 CUDA cores. Fully-enabled GK208 parts like the NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 deliver a marginally better gaming experience than an Xbox 360 or PS3. The GT 710, though, is Nvidia thinking “this underpowered card is clearly not underpowered enough!” It has half its shader cores disabled for a grand total of 192, which it runs a 954 MHz. You get GDDR5 memory, though its running across a 64-bit memory bus.

Asus, unsurprisingly, has marketed this card as a “productivity” oriented part. If literally all you need to do is use office software and watch the occasional Netflix video, this might get the job done. A launch price hasn’t been specified, but expect this part to sell for under US$50.
