Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Competitors of GeForce GT 1010 from AMD

We believe that the nearest equivalent to GeForce GT 1010 from AMD is Radeon R7 M365X.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to GeForce GT 1010:

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

Wider memory bus (128 vs 64 bit)

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GT 1010

Much newer (13 January 2021 vs 12 October 2009)

More pipelines (256 vs 48)

Higher memory bandwidth (40.1 vs 32 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 40 nm)

Lower power consumption (30W vs 58W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
