In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 2030.

The GTX 1060 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 2030. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 88.5 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 1060 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 2030. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 57.1 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 GTX 1060 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 2030, and so the GTX 1060 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 GTX 1060 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 2030, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1060 has 160.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 2030, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is massively better than the GeForce GT 2030.

The GeForce GT 2030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 2030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171. The GTX 1060 having 2593 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 2030.

The GeForce GT 2030 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the GeForce GT 2030 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GT 2030 requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 2030 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 requires 90 Watts more than the GeForce GT 2030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1060 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
EVGA's GeForce GTX 1060 Superclocked GAMING card is another small form factor single fan performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1835MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Benchmarks indicate that the GeForce GTX 1060 offers performance just a bit lower than the GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is far faster than its predecessor the GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's new Radeon RX 480 is comparative to this card.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal gaming Performance.
