Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 review: green entry-level card

Nvidia's answer to the RX550


Test results custom-cards (games)

Below you can find the test results of the Gigabyte, Inno3D and MSI custom-cards. 

The Inno3D card refused to run the TimeSpy test.

In Battlefield the two Gigabyte cards are clearly faster, in Medium only the Gigabyte GT 1030 OC offers a framerate that can be seen as marginally playable with some difficulty.

In Civilization all cards achieve playable scores; the differences are too small to point out a real winner.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider all cards barely achieve 30 fps, once again without a clear winner.

In Ghost Recon: Wildlands the Gigabyte 1030 OC is clearly at the top.

In The Division it is Inno3D that offers the best performance, but none of the cards has playable framerates. 

All things considered the Gigabyte 1030 OC is the fastest, albeit barely:
