Put into perspective the score of the GT 1030, please! Comparing it to a much faster card is completely meaningless. Put the scores of the 1030, the 1050, the RX 550, RX 560, even the RX 6400 if there is already, if not all of them at least one of them. Comparing it to an RTX 2060 has no value for the reader.

Doesn't take much imagination to determine that 1/20th the score of the four years old RTX2060 is pretty bad. Having 2GB of memory makes it a no-go for anything but the most lightweight of modern games that would run about the same or better on modern IGPs than a GT1010.

Honestly I agree, it could have been compared to a GT 730 or 710, intels HD 630, basically the other crappy GPU's that will likely be options around it, or at least the GT1030 (ideally both the DDR4 and GDDR5 versions) to compare how much of a stepdown it is, or an RX 550 2GB. No this isn't a rocket ship, it was never meant to be, but posting a comparison to a way faster chip that everyone knows is way faster doesn't really help. Anyone looking to throw something into an esport machine, or conteplating whether or not its better than integrated graphics may be looking at a card like this, and there is nothing here to help them with that comparison.

If you had to buy something new for an esports machine, GT1030 all the way. Or something from the used market, real GTX1050 commonly sell for around $100.

GT730 GDDR5 version has similar memory bandwidth to the GT1010, lower core count (but newer cores), probably around the same performance. But they basically don't make the good 730 anymore, so not much chance of getting one new. And quite the gamble used.

The downside of the GT1030 and likely GT1010 is also limited PCIe bandwidth. Only a 4x card, so you lose half that running at 2.0 and half again at 1.1. In that regard, some of the even older GPUs would be better. But at that point more effective to pick up an AMD APU.

Situation in my place is much worse, a good, used, GT1050 is sold for more than $200.
It's so much worse that they even re-release GT210 1GB (brand new) for $25-$35, and GT610 2GB (brand new) for $45-$55.

I just got 1247 on Timespy with a GT 1030 and an I7-8800. The 1010 appears to be crap even compared to crap.

yeah on my GDDR5 GT 1030 on a 10850k I am getting a score of 1450, so 10x better than the 1010 scoring 153... Intel IGPU is better... (low end Intel 32EU gets a score of 805)
 
Doesn't really matter how fast these are. Most of the people who want these. Just want a cheap GPU to run more monitors in a system with IGP or to be able to use a monitor in a system without IGP. It'll be fine for web browsing, MS Office, YouTube and such.

Did you use 3DMark Time Spy Extreme? Because your score is half of the RTX 2060, which is a lot faster than the 1030. Also, the specs for the 1010 are actually close to those of the 1030, it shouldn't be that far.
