NVidia GeForce GT 1030 Graphic Cards starting from INR 6000 launched in India

NVidia GeForce GT 1030 Graphic Cards starting from INR 6000 launched in India:

Great news for all the gamers and streamers out there relying on performance to thrive in their lives. NVidia has just made your lives easier by releasing some new graphic cards which are affordable indeed. This might be the start of affordable graphic cards as more and more graphic card makers join the bandwagon. We will know more of such news at Computex this year.

NVidia has justcome up with a new low-end graphics card in the GeForce GT 1030 for entry-level and budget-minded users. It’s the latest GPU within NVidia’s 10 series (all equipped with the Pascal architecture), and is priced around $75 which is around Rs.6000 in India.

The GTX 1030 provides a bit more power than what an integrated graphics processor (IGP) offers and is targeted to those who mainly play less demanding games such as League of legends or Counter strike: Global offensive. It’s also useful for 4K home theater setups, since many older IGPs cannot do proper 4K.

The GT in the name, rather than GTX, suggests that this GPU is not aimed at serious gamers. It does not support VR or NVidia’s G-Sync, Ansel, or GameStream features. No power connectors are needed, and the maximum power draw is rated at 30W, well below the 75W PCIe slot limit. Most models will have one single-link DVI port and one HDMI 2.0b port, though manufacturers might go with their own designs, which means a lot of choice for the users.

GeForce GT 1030 cards could be tempting for those looking to upgrade an older PC with only integrated graphics, and without a beefy power supply. NVidia is positioning this GPU as more suitable for photo and video editing than hardcore gaming, though it should give low-impact games at 1920×1080 or lower resolutions a boost as well.

 

At the time of launch, Zotac and MSI both have one model each in the Indian market. The Zotac GeForce GT 1030 ZT-P10300A-10L is priced at Rs. 5,995 while the MSI GeForce GT 1030 2G LP OC is priced at Rs. 5,999.

The GT 1030 itself has 2GB of VRAM, a 64-bit memory interface, 384 CUDA cores, and includes ports for HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort. Its small form factor of 4.7 by 6.7 inches makes it easier to fit into compact systems, and the 30-watt power draw means it doesn’t need much juice which is incredible, indeed. Reference models have a 1468MHz boost clock speed. However, there are many different SKUs from several manufacturers, some offering fan-less passive cooling solutions and higher core clocks.

Other gaming news:

Moving on to other gaming news, AMD’s low-end graphics card–the Radeon RX 550–is priced around $80, just a bit more than NVidia’s and features 2GB VRAM, a 128-bit memory interface, and a core clock around 1200MHz depending on the SKU.

AMD is also set to reveal the upcoming Vega line of GPUs on May 31 during Computex, so stayed tuned to our coverage on the latest in PC hardware.
