Comparing it to a RX 460/560 misses the point of a 30W card. The RX 560 won't? even be slot powered... In terms of gaming this is the best many systems will do.
 


Except that this low profile GPU is targeted at HTPC builders. AMD's RX 550 series which is a direct competitor to this 1030 series does not have a low profile option (or passive cooling option like one of EVGA's 1030 offerings - very important to some mITX HTCP builders like me who would never game with it).



Another good point. AMD has no direct competitor to these new 1030s.

what would a htpc builder even be doing with a dedicated card? you're not really gonna game with it, an igpu will work fine.

Maybe you want to run 4 different TVs off the same HTPC.
These gt1030s are good for that.
