NVIDIA very recently and quietly announced a new GeForce graphics cards into the market, but it isn’t the rumoured powerhouse RTX 3080 Ti or entry-level RTX 3050. In fact, the card in question here is a GeForce GT 1010, a Pascal-based GPU that is located at the base of the entry-level spectrum.
The GT1010 was reportedly first discovered by YouTuber Dapz, who allegedly spotted the card on a driver download page. It didn’t take long before NVIDIA itself confirmed its existence but also said that the card had yet to be released. While it wasn’t explicitly mentioned, it’s clear that the card is aimed at consumers building HTPCs and home servers, and not gamers.
That brings us to the technical specifications of the GT 1010. GPU-wise, the card is built around the GP108 architecture, has 2GB GDDR5, a 64-bit memory bus, 256 CUDA cores, 16 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a maximum boost clock of 1468MHz. As for power consumption, the card should have a TDP of 30W and a recommended PSU of 200W.
At the time of writing, there is still no official pricing, but sources are expecting the card to cost no more than US$70 (~RM283) when it becomes available.
