Perhaps also because of the current chip glut and the relatively expensive DDR5 memory chips, GT 1030 graphics cards have appeared in recent weeks, which are not equipped with DDR5 as before, but with (significantly slower) DDR4 memory. The performance of these cards is significantly lower than you would expect from GT 1030 cards with DDR5 memory.
Absolutely incomprehensible and in our eyes almost misleading is that these cards may still bear the designation GT 1030, especially since the price of these slimmed-down cards hardly deviates from the older DDR5 models.
Since yesterday the first tests are circulating on the net and it looks like Nvidia will get another Shitstorm blown in the face:
And not necessarily without justification. If you don&t look very closely at the package here, you probably won&t get what you think you are buying.
By the way, if you need the GT1030 for video editing, you should get particularly little performance under the lame DDR4 memory. The new version only delivers 16.8GB/s memory throughput, while the DDR5 model still achieves almost three times the throughput (48 GB/s). And this with a price difference of just about 8 euros. So open your eyes when buying GPU.
