NVIDIA Readies the GeForce GT 1030 to Compete with Radeon RX 550

With the Tuesday (18/04) launch of the Radeon RX 550 at US $79, the market for IGP-replacement discrete GPUs sprung back to life. NVIDIA is preparing to address the market with the new GeForce GT 1030 graphics card, based on its "Pascal" architecture. The SKU will be based on the new 14 nm "GP108" silicon, and could feature up to 512 CUDA cores, and up to 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide interface.

With tiny board and electrical footprints, one can expect the chip to rely on the PCI-Express slot entirely for its power, and come in low-profile and fan-less designs. It could feature an up-to-date I/O, including HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4, which its predecessor, the GT 730 lacks. The company could formally announce the GT 1030 around mid-May, 2017.

I think this card can only support CounterStrike: Global Offensive and, maybe, Diablo 3.

Means the entry level laptop spinoffs of GF108 will update (GF108 40nm/GF117 28nm).

Finally an end to its countless rebrands (435M, 555M, 635M, 720M, 820M, 910M) that are not that better than even a HD 520 will vanish.

This could be a great card for HTPC. Depending on the official specs, it could become more popular than the GTX 1050 2GB.

That card, possibly have the power of a GTX 580. Enough to play Crysis 3 at 1080p with 30 fps average.


Definitely more than enough for Diablo 3

IMO RX 550 is intended as a temporary complimentary solution for early Ryzen adopters since Raven Ridge is still a long way to launch....

Too far fetched to compare against GTX 580.

Given the core count, i will rate it somewhere around my R7-260X (aka overclocked HD 7790)...

Er no it is close to GTX 580.


GTX 750 Ti have already proven to be around the same performance of GTX 480, given that it is clocked at 1085Mhz with 640 cores. And that was 28nm.


Now you telling me with 16nm FF and 512 cores clock at 1.5 GHz cannot beat GTX 580, which is only like 15% faster than 480. I dont really think so.


Alternately, based on core count, TXP is around 6x the perf. However we know core count does not scale linearly in practical. There is diminishing return. That put it around 4.5-5X the performance. Crysis 3 running max setting at 4K 45 fps for 1080 Ti could give 30 fps at 1080p if you cut the performance by 80%.


Also The 1080 Ti is around +350% faster than my old 670 (I compared quite a few titles), And that is pretty good gauge given GTX 670 is barely faster than GTX 580.

I was super close to conclude that 30 fps at Crysis 3 has the same power as GTX 580.

Maths usually dont lie. Seeing that GTX 1080 has 4.39x the performance of GTX 580 at 1440p. It is pretty damn close considering 1080 has 5x the core count of GT 1030 but scaling does not work linearly, so the gap is possibly closer than that.

Best to compare old game where support on both old and new card are same.


I am pretty sure it is close to 580. I very interested in the Firestrike benchmark between this 2 cards.

Perhaps to make it convincing, you should include a benchmark chart showing RX 550's performance with Crysis 3.

Yeah math do not lie. My estimation is rather based on RX 550's shader count (512SP) vs that on RX 460 (896SP). Mind you RX 460 performs about similar to GTX 950, which in turn is comparable to GTX 760 and therefore slightly ahead of GTX 580. I do not see how having 58% of RX 460's resources can make it perform close to GTX 580 where RX 460 itself is only comparable to. Moreover, we dont even know if RX 550 comes with 8 or 16 TMUs. If comes with 8, performance will be further strickened down. (Most likely so, historically speaking)

Unless AMD is trying to prove having lesser CUs is more efficient. Hence wanting consumers to buy more of their lower one models..
