GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI are entry-level video cards from Nvidia. They appear as alternatives for those who need to use more monitors or even for those who want to enjoy simpler games in HD resolution. The GPUs, which are available in 2 or 4-GB versions, are found in the market starting at $99 and are models that can be installed even in simpler systems.
With the low-cost proposal, the GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI cards also promise to operate with lower power consumption. Below, Techidence presents a comparison of GPUs to help you decide which one is ideal for your system.
GTX 750 TI vs GT 1030
|GTX 750 TI||GT 1030|
|Price||from $99||from $131|
|Launch||February 2014||May 2017|
|Clock||up to 1085 MHz||up to 1468 MHz|
|Memory||2GB GDDR5 or DDR4 / 4GB GDDR5||2 GB GDDR5 or DDR4|
|Memory interface||128 bit||64 bit|
|Connections||DVI / HDMI||Display Port / HDMI / DVI|
The cards have simple specifications, with, in most versions, only 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. Some versions of the cards also have DDR4 memory, an older standard, which tends to offer less performance.
The GTX 750 TI offers a better number of CUDA cores and RAM interfaces than the GT 1030, which should impact the performance. On the other hand, the GT 1030 promises to achieve a much higher clock than the GTX 750 TI.
Performance of GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI
As for performance, the GTX 750 TI is a card that, even though it was released about three years earlier than the GT 1030, still tends to deliver more performance. This is because it is a truly gaming-oriented card.
In tests from specialized benchmark websites, the gain of the GTX 750 TI over the GT 1030 is around 30%, which is quite a considerable amount when we are talking about gaming GPUs.
Consumption of GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI
Both models require, according to the manufacturer, power supplies of only 300 W. This is a value that allows the GPUs to be used even in simpler systems since even an input power supply can already provide enough power for the cards.
Also according to the manufacturer’s data, the GT 1030 has a power consumption of only 30 W, while the GTX 750 TI has a power consumption of 60 W. This is mainly due to the segment for which the card is intended – after all, it is a performance-oriented model.
GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI Features
Being a GTX line card, the GTX 750 TI offers support for more features than the GT 1030. The card released in 2014 brings support for Nvidia GameStream, GPU Boost 2.0, 3D Vision, Adaptive VSync, and support for up to four monitors.
The GT 1030, on the other hand, is an entry-level card aimed primarily at systems in which the motherboard does not offer many video output alternatives. Nvidia’s entry-level GPU can display a digital resolution of up to 7680 x 4320 pixels, has support for multiple monitors, and as mentioned before, tends to be very power efficient.
Price and availability of GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI
Both cards can be found easily in the market. They end up being very sought after by those who need a new GPU, but cannot make a big investment. The GTX 750 TI appears in the market for values starting at $99 in a 2 GB version from GeForce. The card, which brings a good amount of memory, promises good performance and can be an alternative for games in HD resolution.
For those who only need a card to have more versatility in video outputs, for values starting at $131.99, it is already possible to find GT 1030 models as a solution from GeForce. The model also offers support for low-profile systems and brings 2 GB of DDR4 VRAM.
Cost-effectiveness of GT 1030 and GTX 750 TI cards
For those looking for a gaming card, it is worth considering investing a little more in the GTX 750 TI. It, in turn, tends to offer much more gaming performance, being a card that offers support for more technologies.
But for those who only need more video outputs or a GPU for low-profile systems, the GT 1030 ends up being more interesting. This is because it is a newer model, has a lower cost, and appears more often in online retailers.
