GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon RX Vega 11 comparison

For gaming, the Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics card is better than the GeForce GT 1030 in our tests.

In our comparison, the GeForce GT 1030 has a significantly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the GeForce GT 1030 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.

In addition, the Radeon RX Vega 11 has a significantly lower TDP at 15 W when compared to the GeForce GT 1030 at 30 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the Radeon RX Vega 11 is faster than the GeForce GT 1030.
