    Rumors on Twitter suggest that "Beige Goby" will have 14 CU, 4 GB RAM and a 64 bit memory interface. That is a low end card by 2021 standards, performance might be halfway between the best AMD APUs and a RX 5500XT. Also, TDP might be below 75W so it can also fill that niche.

    Meanwhile the GT 1030 is obsolete, as both AMD's and Intel's IGP have reached a performance that makes a GT 1030 redundant. At best, it might have a role in systems that have neither IGP nor a need for fast graphics.

Even the AMD 5500XT boards are selling for 3-4x the price I bought mine at just over a year ago thanks to scalpers, and they're no powerhouse GPU. I can only hope no components in my systems go bad in the next 2 years or they'll be impossible to replace.
    Tell me about it. I quit playing games in actual 4K just so I'm not pushing my 580 too hard. I integer scale 1080p into 4K. When I built my current system in February I bought a grey market R5 4650G APU just in case my GPU dies because I know I'm not going to pay the prices they cost now. I'm glad I bought my APU when I did. $290 after taxes and shipping. They're $300 and up before all that now.

    Fortunately I didn't sell my retired graphics cards so I can at least keep my computer working when some card went wrong...
