In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 570 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 has a 84 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 570, but the RX 570 has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 1030. As a result, the RX 570 exhibits a 109.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 1030. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 1030 has a 84 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 570, but the RX 570 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 1030. As a result, the RX 570 exhibits a 17.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 1030. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 1030 was released less than a year after the RX 570, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX 570 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 1030, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 570 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 570 has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 1030, which means that the memory performance of the RX 570 is massively better than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 570 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 1030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the RX 570 is 2683. The RX 570 having 2105 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 570 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 1030.

The RX 570 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 1030. This means that the RX 570 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 570 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 1030 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 570. The RX 570 requires 90 Watts more than the GeForce GT 1030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 570 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 1030.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview 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.Overview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. These new AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This Asus RX 570 graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

The AMD Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC RX 570 4GB graphics card released in April 2017 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and replaces the older Radeon RX 470. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570 runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.

Architecture
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC RX 570 processing central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1310MHz, when the boost mode is triggered. The reference RX 570 card's boost clock is 1244MHz

Memory
The Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC RX 570 comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
The Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC RX 570 has a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 570 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC delivers a Mid/High graphical performance for 2017. with the RX570 capable of running most triple AAA titles released during 2017 on medium to high graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution. With some adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 570 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570.
