In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 has a 77 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560, but the RX 560 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 1030. As a result, the RX 560 exhibits a 35.1 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 77 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GT 1030 providing 1.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. 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 560, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB and the GeForce GT 1030 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX 560 has 80 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 1030, which means that the memory performance of the RX 560 is much better than the GeForce GT 1030.

The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 1030 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1306 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 1030 is 578. The RX 560 having 728 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 560 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 1030.

The RX 560 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 1030. This means that the RX 560 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 1030.

The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 1030 requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 1030. The RX 560 requires 45 Watts more than the GeForce GT 1030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 560 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 1030.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
\\r\\Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\\r\\nGPU
\\r\\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

\\r\\nMemory
\\r\\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\\r\\nPower Consumption
\\r\\nWith a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\\r\\nPerformance
\\r\\nThis graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1080p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. It may struggle with the latest high-end AAA titles due to the limited available VRAM.

\\r\\nSystem Suggestions
\\r\\Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
