It looks like the folks over at Nvidia are planning to take on Radeon’s recently released RX 500 series of graphics cards; one graphics card in particular that apparently got Nvidia’s attention is the RX 550. According to Expreview, Nvidia will be releasing a graphics card to compete with the RX 550, and it may be called the GT 1030.
That’s right folks, we might actually be looking at the first non-GTX graphics card by Nvidia to be included under its 1000 series of cards. In addition, the GT 1030 will also, upon being released, be the first Pascal-based graphics card to be classed under Nvidia’s ‘GT’ branding.
For those who are not aware, most of Nvidia’s older GT series of graphics cards are catered for the low-end market; this means they are not as power as their GTX counterparts. Interestingly, Nvidia may equip its upcoming low-powered graphics card with a brand new Pascal GPU called GP108 (14nm) too.
Like many other low-end graphics cards, the GT 1030 may be rather small in size, which means that it’ll be perfect for compact systems. Not much else is known about the GT 1030 for now, but sources do expect the graphics card to be announced officially sometime in May 2017.
