In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030.

The GTX 1070 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 88 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 152.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1070 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 82.8 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 GTX 1070, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 1070 has 6144 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 GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1070 has 224.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 1030, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1070 is massively better than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 1030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4658. The GTX 1070 having 4080 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 1030 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1070. The GTX 1070 requires 190 Watts more than the GeForce GT 1030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1070 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
