Pascal Rides Again, Nvidia Launches the GeForce GT 1010 – Toms Hardware

Unfortunately, we still do not have any info on an MSRP; however our finest guess is to anticipate the GT 1010 to cost similar to that of the GT 710 its changing.

If you are wondering why Nvidia is reanimating the Pascal architecture, its due to how the GT series of cards operate in Nvidias lineup. The GT series is created around standard jobs like 2D/3D velocity and providing extra screen outputs for systems. Jobs like these can currently be made with older architectures like Pascal, so implementing a much more recent architecture into a GT card really isnt needed.

The GT 1010 includes the very same GP108 core as the GT 1030 but disables a third of the shader cores to give the GT 1010 a total of 256 shader cores to deal with (compared to the GT 1030 with 384 shader cores)..
For memory, the GT 1010 will come with one memory config, 2GB of GDDR5. Unlike the GT 1030 which can be found in both GDDR5 and DDR4 versions..
For power, the GT 1010 has a TDP of just 30Ws with a recommend PSU wattage of 200W, so this GPU needs to be suitable with practically any modern PC or pre-built that has an open PCI-E slot to spare.

The GT 1010 ought to be replacing the much older Kepler-based GT 710 with a healthy increase to performance. Thankfully you need to be able to snag a GT 1010 in the future as Nvidias GT series GPUs are largely unaffected by the current graphics card shortage.
