Insulation properties of gypsum board

Just curious, Does anyone know if 1/2" wallboard offers any R value by itself?

In between R-2 and 3. but because of it's density of sheet raock, you would get condensation on the warm side of it, if you didn't have a dead air space between the sheet rock and the outside.
