Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 Graphics Card Prices

The least powerful entry into Nvidia's GeForce 10-series is the GT 1030, which uses the GP108 die. Nvidia created GT 1030 to be highly energy efficient, with a max TDP of 30W. Nvidia equipped the GT 1030 with a narrow 64-bit memory interface and just 2GB of GDDR5 to kep the core's three SMs fed. Due to the reduced resource count, the GT 1030 is best suited as a replacement for slower integrated graphics, but it can be used for low-end gaming.

    This is it people, the bottom rung of NVidia desktop PC graphics. Now, for the shocking truth. Tom's hierarchy chart puts this card's performance similar to the 9800 GX2. This budget card has roughly the same kind of performance as the card that ruled them all, 9 years ago. Oh what a time to be alive.

    Put this card into your system and enjoy all the thrills of Half Life 2. Make America great again in Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Explore the scenic landscapes of Elder Scrolls IV Obilvion! Be awe stricken by the technological marvel of Crysis at 25fps in 720p.

    Now you're playing with POWER!

    This card with a Ryzen 1200 is a real solution to just buying an i5 using the iGPU. Its a great option to create a home media center.

    I think that is a little generous. But as soon as the GPU mining craze dies down and card prices normalize the price/performance metric will be at the best we've seen ever.

    wow the performance of this card is nearly 9 years old???? why bother with such a low end gpu there are far better cards for the money.

    Seems to me the GT1030 is more on par with the Nvidia 750. It even outperforms the 750ti in tomshardware review on DOOM. Should be a bracket higher I would say.
