NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030

Released in 2017, the GeForce GT 1030 is a GPU from NVIDIA. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a bad card for gaming with a score of 7%.

It has a total memory bandwidth of 46 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 64 bits.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GT 1030 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1228 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1468 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GT 1030 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 30W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
