HD 4000 vs GeForce GT 1030 comparison
For gaming, the GeForce GT 1030 graphics card is better than the HD 4000 in our tests.
In our comparison, the GeForce GT 1030 has a significantly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the GeForce GT 1030 also has a significantly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.
In addition, the GeForce GT 1030 has a significantly lower TDP at 30 W when compared to the HD 4000 at 45 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.
In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GT 1030 is better than the HD 4000.
