Thus, the GT 720 offers either 14.4GB/s (DDR3) or 40GB/s (GDDR5) of memory bandwidth.

The GPU supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4, standard set of display connectors include Dual-link DVI-D, HDMI and VGA and the graphics card power is set at 19W.

The Geforce GT 720 now holds the lowest-end of Nvidia's Geforce GT 700 series lineup, while the rest of the GT 600 lineup is still listed as available.

While Nvidia did not announce any details regarding the price or the availability date of the GT 720, most partners have already announced their graphics cards and you can expect them to hit retail soon with a price US $49.99.
