Based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the ZOTAC GeForce GT 1030 Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Single-Link output. The GT 1030 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 384 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
For cooling, ZOTAC implemented a single fan cooler that is combined with a heatsink.
