Nvidia has officially launched its latest Pascal-base graphics card called the GeForce GT 1030. This also in general marked the return of GT series graphics card into the market which has been missing for quite some time.
It’s worth noting, however, that consumers shouldn’t really expect GT 1030 to perform like its GTX-branded counterparts though. Instead, one should look at it as a graphics card that will allow consumers to run some non-graphics intensive workload and games at an affordable price. Despite this, one ‘advantage’ that comes with the GT 1030 is that it’s rather small, which means it can practically be fitted onto most systems.
When it comes to specifications, the Nvidia GT 1030 graphics card comes with a boost clock speed of 1468MHz. Memory capacity is 2GB, while the clock speed is rated at 3000MHz. Display outputs of the graphics card include one DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0, and DVI ports each. Power consumption is said to be around 30W, and it’ll be drawn directly from the PCIe slot – no power connectors needed here.
It seems very unlikely that Nvidia will release a “Founders Edition” version of this graphics card since it is aimed at the low-end market. That said, consumers should expect many third-party manufacturers to unveil their custom GT 1030 graphics cards very soon.
