Based on the known specifications alone, the GT 1030 is undeniably the lowest end of all the recent Pascal based cards. TDP is at 30W though, which is more than enough for low power systems. Form factor is also SFF compliant and with that TDP, we might see fanless designs from Nvidia’s AIB partners in the near future.

The card supports HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4 and Dual Link-DVI. Maximum resolution support is rated at  7680 x 4320 @ 60 Hz.

The GT 1030 is slated at US$69, or about 3500 Pesos with the current exchange rate. Performance according to Nvidia is 3x faster on image editing and 6x faster on gaming compared to systems with the Intel HD 510 and HD 530 integrated graphics.
