In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 2030 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition.

The GeForce GT 2030 has a 487 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 2030. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 2.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 2030. 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 2030 has a 487 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 2030. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 4.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 2030. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 460 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 2030, and so the GTX 460 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GT 2030 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 2030 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 460 has 86.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 2030, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is much better than the GeForce GT 2030.

The GeForce GT 2030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 2030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514. The GeForce GT 2030 having 64 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 460 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 2030 transistor size technology is 28 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GeForce GT 2030 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GT 2030 requires 30 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 2030 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460. The GTX 460 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the GeForce GT 2030. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 460 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 2030.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce GT 2030 2GB is a rumoured low-end 20 series Nvidia graphics card based on the first revision of the Turing GPU architecture. Architecture The first variant of the Turing architecture succeeds the Pascal architecture. Manufactured with a 12nm 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 2030 equips a GPU codenamed GT108 and offers [TBA] Shader Processing Units, [TBA] TMUs and [TBA] 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 2030 is a low-end graphics card that focuses on games requiring minimal graphics performance. It may run some AAA games in 2018 on Low. Consequently, the GT 2030 will come with a budget price tag and will be available from as little as $79.99.GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 460.
The biggest features are increases in the core-clock that went from 675MHz to 765MHz and from 900MHz to 925MHz, respectively.
According to most benchmarks, the performance boost is around 8% when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 460.
