NVIDIA has quietly launched a very weak graphics card called the GeForce GT 1010. We don’t suppose that this is anything that the modern PC gamer will get excited over, but it’s nice to finally see green team release a GPU that isn’t out of stock immediately and scalped to high heaven.
The GeForce GT 1010 was initially spotted by a YouTube user named Dapz, who noticed the new entry on NVIDIA’s official driver downloads page. While customer service failed to provide them the exact specifications, a TechPowerUp database entry suggests that the card leverages a GP108 Pascal-era GPU and features 256 shading units, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, and base/boost clock speeds of 1,228/1,468 MHz.
“Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 1010 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 30 W maximum,” the entry reads. “Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x mini-HDMI. GeForce GT 1010 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 147 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.”
Note that the feature image used is of a GeForce GT 1030. NVIDIA hasn’t officially announced the GeForce GT 1010 yet, but we suspect that the cards should look very similar. It’s also unclear whether this is destined for the OEM market only.
