GeForce GT 1030 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 1030 2GB is a low-end 1000 series Nvidia graphics card based on the first revision of the Pascal architecture.


Architecture
The first variant of the Pascal architecture succeeds the Maxwell architecture. Manufactured with a 16nm technology, it has a large L2 Cache, which allows NVIDIA to produce graphics cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.


GPU
The GT 1030 equips a GPU codenamed GP108 and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface. The central unit runs at 1252MHz and goes up to 1506MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.


Release Price
The GeForce GT 1030 is a low end graphics card that focuses on games requiring minimum graphics performance. Consequently the GT 1030 will come with a budget price tag and will be available from as little as $79.99.

my card is just 13 % faster than this baby :) but in reall gaming performance i dont think this card will come to GTX 560 even closer… older high end cards will still outperform this cuty

I upgraded my wife's computer from an i3-530, 2GB ram, Gt430 to a GT1030, but we can't see great improvements in performance, we're gonna try putting 4GB ram from another computer today and see how much the performance increases.

Added 4 GB of ram, with that i3-530, an Asus 2gb GT 1030 DDR5 and 5GB of ram, she's now able to run games like Fallout 4. World of Warcraft Legion and Fortnite at around 35-55 FPS.

It gives 70%-80% performance of 750 Ti. I am using this with Pentium G4560. Can play most games in 1080p in 40-50 fps with medium/high settings.

250 watt it quite low and not recommended if you see GD recommended PSU is 300 at least
you could latest games but just on low or medium settings and low on low resolution (720p)
this card is low end and comparable to GTX 750 (non TI)
GTX 1050 is way much better (comparable to GTX 960)

With your a8 250W PSU with 16-18 AMPs on the +12V rail should be perfectly enough.

You're better of buying a GTX 1050 for 100 USD. You pay 30 USD more and you get double the performance. For gaming the 1050 offers way more value for a small price increase.
