Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 430 sales 11 October 2010 at a recommended price of $79. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 800 - 900 MHz (1600 - 1800 data rate) are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 - 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 5.7" (14.5 cm). No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 49 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

2.00%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

  • Passmark
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
  • GeekBench 5 OpenCL
  • Octane Render OctaneBench

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Benchmark coverage: 26%

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.

Benchmark coverage: 14%

GT 430 720

GeekBench 5 OpenCL

Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses OpenCL API by Khronos Group.

Benchmark coverage: 9%

Octane Render OctaneBench

This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
