In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030.

The GTX 1080 has a 419 MHz higher core clock speed and 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 227.3 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 1080 has a 419 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 86.9 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 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 1080 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 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 288.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 1030, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 1030 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 1030 is 578. The GTX 1080 having 5677 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 1030 requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 1030. The GTX 1080 requires 270 Watts more than the GeForce GT 1030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 1030.

Cooling Solution
DirectCU III Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heatpipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5.7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7.4% at 3840x2160.
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.
