In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 2030 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 5850 MSI Twin Frozr II 1GB Edition.

The GeForce GT 2030 has a 527 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850, but the HD 5850 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 2030. As a result, the HD 5850 exhibits a 12.1 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 527 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850, but the HD 5850 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 2030. As a result, the HD 5850 exhibits a 3.2 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 HD 5850 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 2030, and so the HD 5850 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 HD 5850, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 5850 has superior memory performance.

The HD 5850 has 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 2030, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5850 is massively better than the GeForce GT 2030.

The GeForce GT 2030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5850 MSI Twin Frozr II 1GB Edition has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 2030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5850 is 522. The GeForce GT 2030 having 56 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 5850 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 2030 transistor size technology is 28 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5850. This means that the GeForce GT 2030 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GT 2030 requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5850 MSI Twin Frozr II 1GB Edition requires 151 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 2030 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 5850. The HD 5850 requires 121 Watts more than the GeForce GT 2030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 5850 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.Overview
