    Since memory clock is down by almost 300%.
    Then this card should change from GT1030 to GT1000.

    Nvidia don't quote a nominal base clock for the GT1030 on their GeForce site, but they do give the boost clock as 1468MHz, which is higher than the boost clock for the MSI "LP OC" card, so you may have a point. Although I suspect MSI's lawyers will come up with some justification, whether it's that OC doesn't stand for "overclocked" after all, or that something else technically makes it overclocked...

    I have to admit I raised an eyebrow at this, so went hunting. Tom's 2400G review very handily tested both RR APUs against a variety of Intel CPUs with a GT 1030, and the results are very game dependent. In general, they're closely matched at 720p with the GT 1030 coming out a bit ahead at 1080p, but it's not a blanket win for GT 1030. Chop out a massive chunk of its memory bandwidth and drop the core clocks, and I suspect it'd struggle to keep pace with the 2200G, let alone the 2400G.

    Put all that together, and it looks a lot like a card targeted at OEMs who want to add a bit more graphical oomph to an Intel-based desktop at minimal cost....

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 cards using DDR4 RAM spotted

    Only two versions of the GT 1030? I know there's the 3GB and 6GB GTX 1060, which is the only other 10-series model to have two versions.

    That is not even half the mess compared to the Nvidia 6-series!

    Optimistically, this is a step in the right direction!

    There's a few models you forgot:
    - The MX150 laptop chip has two flavours https://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics...ariant-common/
    - the max Q/P/O etc laptop chips
    - the 5 GB 1060
    - and the models with faster memory (9Gb/s 1060, 11 Gb/s 1080)

    I was wondering that. I can imagine it being added to an i3 or Pentium OEM build, but it isn't that cheap a card so there might be a better integrated option if you added the money to the cost of the i3 . That's ignoring the obvious answer of a 2400g and sticking with Intel inside (bom; ding ding, ding ding! - do I get an advertising cash backhander now?).

    I suspect that Iris graphics could give this 1030 a good run, but most of the latest parts seem to come with UHD630.

    The size of the die on this is pretty significant at 77mm^2. Once you allow for DDR5 capable memory controller, dp/hdmi interfaces and all the fixed function stuff for all the mpeg like transcoding the area used by shaders is probably not far off what Coffee Lake uses (149mm^2 where a quick squint has me estimating 1/3rd of the die is graphics).

    I didn't forget, I didn't know to begin with

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I left mobile parts out though, I don't think they're as interesting and given the lack of reach it doesn't generate as much online forum rage.

    Despite this, the 10-series still has nothing on the 6-series!

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 cards using DDR4 RAM spotted

    I don't have an issue with the card if the DDR4 part is named clearly and its under £50,ie,much cheaper than the GT1030 GDDR5. This would be an ideal card,for upgrading an older system so it can run modern codecs much easier for example or something like Netflix 4K,and so on.

    OTH,I just hope its not another 896 and 1024 shader RX560 situation and then retailers quietly sell it at the same price as the GT1030 GDDR5!!

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 cards using DDR4 RAM spotted

    I have to say, whoever recommended me this GFX card (non DDR4) during Black Friday, hats off. Serious bang for buck. Ok not the highest settings even on 1080p, but all games I've thrown at it are smooth & playable, including Far Cry 5 (as long as I dont install nVidias GameReady version lol). This was only meant to be a temporary card, I'm now considering selling my GTX 980 just to get the most $$$ from it that I can.

    A benchmark has popped up for this card. In short - beware the DDR4 version!! It's actually slower than 2400G integrated...
