NVIDIA ’s xx30 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GT 1030, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Conclusion. Given the GeForce GT 1030’s resource deficit compared to Radeon RX 550, Nvidia fares remarkably well with GP108. In older DirectX 9- and 11-based games, it’s typically faster ...
According to NVIDIA's official specifications, the reference GeForce GT 1030 was shipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6008 MHz (GDDR5-effective) across a 64-bit wide memory bus which amassed to a memory bandwidth of 48 GB/s.
Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 Low Profile 2G The length of Gigabyte's GeForce GT 1030 Low Profile 2G, from the edge of its slot bracket to the end of the cooler, is just 15.2cm. Its height, from the ...
In reality, GeForce GT 1030 is the spiritual successor of GT 730 since Nvidia never created a 900-series product below the 0 GTX 950. Spec-wise, the Kepler-class GeForce GT 730 is a much closer ...
The GeForce GT 1030 also packs 2GB of of vRAM, a boost clock of 1468MHz, and a maximum resolution of 7680-by-4320 at 60Hz. The reference build calls for one DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2 ...

The same performance, but GT 1030 is trustful. Don't need to care about anything like BIOS, Driver, etc...And, some lower budget than RX 550.

RX 550 vs GT 1030How do the RX 550 and the GT 1030 compare?If the RX 550 is better, are there any low profile single slot cards out there?

reformatpitch 1 year ago
The RX 550 is a little bit faster than the GT 1030. Low profile single slot cards also exist.The problem here is that the RX 550 is currently more expensive than it is really worth. It is only 14% faster but is - more expensive.

gt 1030 or gtx 750ti for hp office pcI have a hp Compaq pro 6300 sff with a i5 34708gb of ddr31tb hard drivethe psu is only 240 watts can it handle a 750 ti? and if so can I upgrade overtime with other parts?

Those (2)+12v rails combined are good for 240W (probably more, in reality). That is easily enough for the GTX 750 Ti and even the GTX 1050 Ti if you get one that is not factory OC'ed and has no 6-pin requirement.I have a GTX 1050 Ti running in my Optiplex 790 SFF on a PSU that only has a single 17 amp +12v rail.

Fanless vs fan GPUs (GT 1030/RX 550)I noticed that some manufacturers have made fanless versions of these budget GPUs. However, are there any difference in gaming performance between fanless and fan? If not, then I'll consider buying the fanless one for my silent gaming PC build

walruschokehold 1 year ago
Usually the fanless components are slower, due to lower clock speeds in order to keep temperatures down. You know how if you overclock something it runs hotter? The reverse is also true. You don't get something for nothing. If you want silence you usually have to give up some performance. The real question here is even if they are slower, does it matter? Maybe they are still fast enough to suit your purposes. For instance, maybe for you 50fps silent is better than 60fps with fan noise. On the other hand, if these low budget cards barely manage 35fps in the games you want to play, giving up even a small amount of performance is out of the question.
