— 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.
