GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon RX 550 Graphics cards Comparison

If you are going to buy a new graphics card and are choosing between GeForce GT 1030 and Radeon RX 550, there are a couple of things to consider. Cards with more VRAM in general perform better and allow you to play on higher graphics settings. Size also makes a difference. A model with a large heatsink can occupy up to three expansion slots on a motherboard. Be sure you have enough room in your PC case. When comparing GPUs with different architectures, more processing cores and even higher TFLOPS will not always translate to better performance. To help you decide which GPU you need, we have measured frame rates in a number of popular games. For more on how the GeForce GT 1030 stacks up against Radeon RX 550, check out specs charts below.

1151MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

GPU turbo

1183MHz

1379MHz

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.

pixel rate

18.93 GPixel/s

22.06 GPixel/s

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.

floating-point performance

1.21 TFLOPS

1.06 TFLOPS

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.

33.1 GTexels/s

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.

GPU memory speed

1750MHz

1050MHz

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.

shading units

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.

texture mapping units (TMUs)

TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.

render output units (ROPs)

The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.

Memory

effective memory speed

7000MHz

2100MHz

The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other apps.

maximum memory bandwidth

112GB/s

16.8GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

VRAM (video RAM) is the dedicated memory of a graphics card. More VRAM generally allows you to run games at higher settings, especially for things like texture resolution.

GDDR version

Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.

memory bus width

128bit

A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.

Supports ECC memory

✖AMD Radeon RX 550

✖Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4

Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Features

DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

OpenGL version

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

OpenCL version

Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

load GPU temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 550)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4)

A lower load temperature means that the card produces less heat and its cooling system performs better.

supports ray tracing

✖AMD Radeon RX 550

✖Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4

Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.

Supports 3D

✖AMD Radeon RX 550

✖Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4

Allows you to view in 3D (if you have a 3D display and glasses).

supports DLSS

✖AMD Radeon RX 550

✖Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4

DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is an upscaling technology powered by AI. It allows the graphics card to render games at a lower resolution and upscale them to a higher resolution with near-native visual quality and increased performance. DLSS is only available on select games.

AMD SAM / Intel Resizable BAR

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 550)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4)

AMD’s Smart Access Memory (SAM) and Intel’s Resizable BAR are two technologies that allow the CPU to have faster access to the graphics card, which can give a performance boost. It requires a compatible motherboard, graphics card, and CPU.

Ports

has an HDMI output

✔AMD Radeon RX 550

✔Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 DDR4

Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.

HDMI ports

More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.

HDMI version

HDMI 2.0
