NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 Pascal GP108 GPU Targets AMD Radeon RX 550

By Jeff Harris, Posted: 05/19/17 01:12AM EDT

Nobody expected that NVIDIA will come up with a Pascal based architecture graphics card (GP108) which will have an incredibly low tag price that is below $100. Yet, imagine the latest GeForce GT 1030 graphics card released by NVIDIA, currently the only GT GPU on the GeForce 10 series lineup, available for as low as $70 (depending on partner reseller)!

As many tech websites suggested, GeForce GT 1030 is directly in competition against AMD Radeon RX 550 which is tagged at $80. This single slot graphics card is clocked at 1227 MHz base and 1468 MHz boost as reported by WCCFTech.

This Pascal-based GP108 GPU also features 384 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. GeForce GT 1030 comes in two variants based on memory 2GB and 4GB. Surprisingly, the 2GB GDDR5 VRAM can clocked at 3000MHz against a 64-bit bus interface. In addition, GeForce GT 1030 uses 6Gbps chips which translate to a memory bandwidth of 48 GB/s.

This single slot graphics card has one DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2, and one Dual-link DVI. The TDP of GeForce GT 1030 is tagged only at 30W while the recommended system power is only at 300W.

As posted by PC Gamer, the GeForce GT 1030 will also be carried by NVIDIA partner resellers MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte, and Zotac. EVGA is reportedly going to have three different SKUs for GeForce GT 1030: GeForce GT 1030 SC Passive Low Profile, GeForce GT 1030 SC Low Profile and GeForce GT 1030 SC Single Slot. However, only the SC Low Profile is currently in stock and is sold for $75.

For comparison, here is the table listing the specifications of NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 and AMD Radeon RX 550:
