GT 1030 review compilation thread

Post by CA_Steve » Wed May 24, 2017 8:06 am

GTX 1030 2GB - In brief: eSports and lightweight game card. May need to dial down textures for 2GB RAM. 1080p performance is similar to or slightly less than RX 550. 30W TDP, but OEM stock OC'ed cards may use yy-zzW at stress loads. DVI is digital only. DisplayPort is 1.2 certified and 1.3/1.4 ready as well as HDMI 2.0b compatible. No SLI.

GT 1030 is unfortunately beat by both sides. Intel's integrated graphics are more silent, small, cost efficient and power efficient than any video card. But for gaming and video editing, the GT 1030 is very limited. For just a bit more money, the GTX 1050, RX 550 and RX 560 all offer a meaningful improvement for just a bit more money.

Not all have iGPU, some have to live with matrox or worst, and some people want to have multiple monitor support and higher resolution support or even certain connector to their monitors, i feel there is a market for this gpus, not that big, but i still think its worth to have them out.
