NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 1030 sales 17 May 2017 at a recommended price of $79. This is Pascal architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 48.06 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x4 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 10.30 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
