GeForce GT 730 vs GeForce GT 1030 benchmarks

For gaming, the GeForce GT 1030 graphics card is better than the GeForce GT 730 in our tests.

In our comparison, the GeForce GT 1030 has a slightly 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. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

In addition, the GeForce GT 1030 has a significantly lower TDP at 30 W when compared to the GeForce GT 730 at 49 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the GeForce GT 1030 over the GeForce GT 730.
