It either means the card itself is "dedicated," e.g. "discrete;" or it's
referring to the card's dedicated video RAM. Can't say for sure.

The GT* 700 series is the 2013 series of chips; I'm running a GTX 660 on
my media center/server without any problems, and I can only presume the
710 will work. My roommate has a 750 in her desktop that runs fine on
the Linux driver, if that says anything.
