Today NVIDIA announced their latest low-end budget graphics card, the GeForce GT 1030, which is their latest GPU that is included within Nvidia’s 10 series, featuring the Pascal architecture.
But unlike other cards in this series, it’s extremely cheap at $75 in the US.
For that, you get a pretty decent card that’s much better than an integrated graphics processor. That means that it’s a decent option for anyone looking for a slight upgrade for use with less demanding games.
It comes with 2GB of VRAM, 64-bit memory interface, 384 CUDA cores, and HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort ports for connecting your gear. The card is also pretty compact, meaning it might be a good option in a compact home theater setup or for something like a 1U service at 4.7 x 6.7 inches.
To top that off, it only needs 30 watts of power.
There will be a number of versions of this card available, the reference will provide a 1,468MHZ boost clock speed, while some others might increase upon that. We pictured EVGA’s above.
