We spend a lot of time talking about the biggest and best graphics cards that hardware vendors have to offer, but sometimes it's good to take a step back and talk about simple utility products. In this vein, we have Zotac’s adorable GeForce GT 710, an entry-level discrete graphics card. What makes this card unusual among GeForce GT 710s is its PCIe x1 interface for data and power, letting it fit into a wide range of systems.
On the surface, this card looks a lot like many other GeForce GT 710s on the market. It's built around a passively-cooled Kepler GPU with 192 stream processors. That chip is backed with 1GB of DDR3 RAM. While this card won’t win any awards for performance, it looks like a decent option for adding a few video ports to a PC that doesn’t have a lot of options—or space—otherwise. While there are smaller GT 710s out there, this one is is among the smallest, with a half-height profile and a length of just 5.75''. It ships with a full-height bracket featuring VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs. Zotac includes a pair of half-height brackets that allow buyers with tiny cases to take advantage of all of the card’s video outputs, too.
