Can be excellent low power discrete GPU (although you get same performance as Vega 11 iGPU on AMD Ryzen 5 2400G and you're lucky to get GDDR5 ones) or weak little ants (if you got GT 1030 with DDR4 VRAM which makes VRAM itself a bottleneck for this GPU).


Poor

Not bad, not decent. 30 watt usage is the only reason why this is 2 stars.


Good

3 years ago.

A cheap GPU for sure. GTX 1030 can work for most mid-games at low to med settings and this GPU has power consumption of 30W meaning it should technically work in almost any PC configuration. If you need more power, consider switching to a GTX 1050 instead along with a stronger PSU.


Average

At least get the GDDR5 version, but it's more worth it to go with a Ryzen APU.


Good

Decent budget card, although not for retail prices. Plays e-sport titles at 1080p low to medium settings just fine, and capable of AAA titles in 1080p low or 720p medium depending on title. Overall nothing wrong with this card, just watch out for the DDR4 variants which have have the performance of the GDDR5 ones.


Average

2 years ago.

GPU is okay. Gets okay performance on games but is generally only meant as a graphics accelerator rather than a gaming card. Exactly equivalent performance to the GPU found in the A15 Bionic chip from the Apple iPhone 13 series. Consumes only 30w of power which is very efficient!

GT 1030 is slightly overpriced compared to a used gtx 750ti but performs really well in a lower wattage and is on par with the gtx 650 and sometimes gets on par with the GTX 750 non ti and is a step higher than its predecessor the gt 730 it is an okay card for its price and a very good card for htpc and low wattage budget build


Excellent

There's not many cards like this in the market; for $60-90, you're getting a card that sucks only 30 watts, is easily overclockable, comes in low profile or passive cooled, requires no power connecters, and enough juice that it will run most games (esports? Not a problem) if you're not nitpicky. People buy this for compatibility & availability, not power; can't ask for more at this price point. Doesn't deserve the criticism.

I haven't got the card just yet but will put it to the test thats for sure. im buying it for a friend for 50 dollars is a great buy for it I mean you can actually game on a 50 dollar gpu and get decent frames... this card was meant for picture and video only light work loads video playback on cpus thats don't offer internal graphics.. so for this card to be able to pump out 80+ frames on some games then it gets two thumbs up from me..

Not quite the best performing card, but it only consumes 30-watts of power, making it compatible with a huge variety of prebuilt systems that have very limited power supply watts. However, you should not spend more than $100 on this thing.

its awesome and i can play fortnite at near high settings! and i can overclock it easily and make it so i can run fortnite at high settings! so its great for $110 and its normally $70 (but thanks to miners its $110) so it has great overclocking potential and is a great gpu!

Following the launch of his elder sisters, the last member of the Pascal architecture was released in mid '17 to fight back the AMD's RX550. With 384 cuda cores, 2GB of GDDR5, a bus width of 64 bits and a tiny 30W of power consumption, the GT1030 was the first "GT" card to be sold as a "gamer" card. It will surely struggle with AAA games in 1080p at high or ultra presets, but for MOBA titles, indie games, emulation and casual gaming it could excell on these tasks as it is still a little bit overkill for just media playing. The strenghs of this card are clearly its lower price tag (though the end of the mining craze has made the price to reach the 100$ frontier in some places, due to the shortage and the overprice of the rest of the cards, making this one most of the times the only way for the non-miner customers) and the really low power consumption. This make this card a good option for renewing old or second hand corporate PCs with low wattage power supplies and maybe for pairing with a Pentium Gold/i3-8100 while you wait for the rest of the grahic card market to lower the price without suffering with the Intel HD Graphics.

Now, this card is EXTREMELY low power (30W), requires no PCLE Plugins, its great. Now we get to the (obvious) issue, Speed. The card is good for basic internet things and some moderate gaming. I'm going to upgrade my pc and it will have an RTX 2070, I won't forget my 1030 Days.

It can handle more than enough in a budget price. It uses only 30W and needs no extra power cables Unfortunately, 64bit ram bus and locked features (ex gtx codecs) bottleneck it!

Decent card for undemanding esports games but be careful not to get the DDR4 version. I got the DDR4 version for $200 and when I try to do a Blender render on it, it feels slower than even my laptop's old 5th gen Intel CPU!

This little card is definitely something. It's a good solution for office tasks and very light gaming.
