An underclocked 20W version of the GeForce GT 1010 is coming

The GeForce GT 1010 is quite a mystery in itself. For example, TechPowerUp has had its specifications in the database since last year and, according to its data, should have been released on January 13, 2021. But in reality, the card started to be talked about about a year later, so – if it was really released last year, then probably only for some OEM manufacturer who mounted it in low-end kits, where it escaped media attention.

The GeForce GT 1010 actually went to the retail markets at the turn of January and February this year. It was supposed to exist in the GDDR5 and DDR4 versions, with the latter reaching almost a third of the memory throughput. Recall that previous generations of APUs have kept pace with the GeForce GT 1030 and GeForce GT 1010 is cut by a third in terms of arithmetic and texturing performance and halved in terms of rasterization, then there is probably no need to emphasize where the reduced memory throughput of the DDR4 model will move the performance by two thirds.

The new version, which is based on the DDR4 model, but further reduces the clock frequency (base from 1228 MHz to 1151 MHz and boost from 1468 MHz to 1379 MHz) by another 6%. So we are at ~ 62% of the arithmetic / texturing power of the GeForce GT 1030, 47% of the rasterization power and 35% of its memory throughput. If we realize that we are getting plus or minus half the performance of older desktop APUs and basically below the level of Intel’s integrated graphics, then it is clear that this product does not target even a very demanding player – rather a user who needs an emergency display, for example graphics card replacement or claim. For users of processor systems without integrated graphics (such as a workstation focused on processor performance), it would be significantly better if the card had passive cooling (at ~ 20W consumption it would not be a problem) than a small active fan, which unnecessarily increases noise and shortens the life of the product.

It is not clear to what extent this model is behind Nvidia and to which manufacturer (Colorful). Nvidia does not currently have a single page dedicated to the GeForce GT 1010. It only mentions the card in the list of models supported in the drivers, but otherwise does not know about it.
