Nvidia has lifted the curtain from its new entry-level graphics card based Pascal architecture – GeForce GT 1030 (not GTX), and is designed for those seeking a higher performance than the integrated GPU, but does not want to spend too much money; particularly suitable for the multi-media segment not for high-end gaming.
Coming to the specifications, the GPU includes 384 CUDA Core, 2GB GDDR5 memory, and 64 Bit Bit Width, for a passing of 48GB/s bandwidth. The basic clock is 1290MHz, which reach the 1468MHz in boost mode. Standard connections include HDMI 2.0b port and a Dual Link DVI. The power consumption is not particularly high: the nominal TDP is 30W, and it is not necessary an auxiliary connector.
As per traditions, it will be available through the top trading partners including EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac with their custom variants. Among these EVGA stands out, offering well-divided into three models with identical technical features, but different sizes and type of dissipation.
All three EVGA GeForce GT 1030 cards offer the same clock speed and memory configurations. EVGA set the core clock of its GT 1030 cards at 1,290MHz and the boost clock at 1,544MHz. Each card includes 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6,000MHz. The GeForce GT 1030 is really meant for accelerating everyday productivity tasks, but not designed for high-end gaming.
