    Phoronix: GeForce GT 1030 Will Work With NVIDIA 381 Linux Driver, Good Luck With Nouveau

    This week NVIDIA released the GeForce GT 1030 as their newest low-end Pascal card. The GT 1030 cards retail for around $70 USD and you can find them in a low-profile version with some cards even being passively cooled...

    Well, according to the only semi-review I found (https://www.golem.de/news/geforce-gt...-127907-2.html), while the official boost clock might not be all that much (for pascal based cards), in reality the thing runs at a constant 1709 Mhz - meaning it actually has more shader alu (and texturing) power than the RX 550. I agree though seems to be a nice little power effficient card, doing quite well considering its very limited memory bandwidth (again, not surprising, considering gm108 did still sort of ok with just 64bit ddr3).

    If I install it on a pc do not uefi the usb key must be in MBR? Maybe this is my problem! The USB stick was in GPT. Now I try to change the partition table in MBR and hopefully well.
    I blamed the video card, but I think I'm wrong.

    I do not know what's going on with Nvidia, I have a GeForce 315, I've never had any problems with the proprietary drivers with the open Nouveau driver.
    Yesterday I tried to install Opensuse tumbleweed and at startup I got a black screen, not even the login arrives. I uninstalled the experimental 3d support, but nothing. Then I installed KdeNeon (not Lts), same thing, black screen. Do Nouveau have problems with the latest kernels?
    I also tried installing Nvidia recovery owners but black screen as usual. Do you know if there are any problems? Sorry if I took advantage of this 3d. Hello

    And it uses only x4 PCI-E lanes. They can save more going to x1 PCI-E, that would draw something like 10-25W and who know even that might be faster than Intel's iGPUs

    But at least that x1 would be normal looking card - single slot and no fan.

    Many thanks

    Michael msi model appears good passive cooling design (black)

    Very impressive how in various games GT 1030 have same performance (in others more case cs go, gta v, far cry primal, overwatch, mass effect andromeda, battlefield 1, the witcher 3) than RX 550 with only 64bits bus, reduced in 128 shaders, 50% less rops and 8 tmus reduced

    And most important GT 1030 consume around 30w compared with RX550, RX550 stay around 55 to 65w depending manufacturer model and clocks

    Impressive indeed for 70 bucks just about all the latest games are playable. You really don't need that much to game just goes to show ya. Its a lot better alternative than way back when when my 9800gt just up and croaked; had to spring for a GTS 450 at bestbuy that card lasted me like 7 years lol but was mainly gaming on my playstations then. That GTS 450 was one hot running card. It's a Galaxy and still runs ROFL!!!!!!

    Recently had to burn a hole in my pocket for a GTX 1070 got one for $280 got it on deal was shear luck of the buying draw and had been drooling over it for awhile. Hope I am good for many years. 1050 ti on standby if something happens good card and hated to spend more money but having a new build was thinking might as well take advantage of latest setup.

    On driver 381.22 note I pretty much had to use it for the 1070 had strange black lines in alien isolation. Was thinking my card was bad... booted into win10 everything perfect went back uninstalled 375 and now its good.
