The elusive GeForce GT 1010 graphics card tormented by 3DMark’s 4K benchmark
The graphics market is almost broken at this point, but is it just broken? Pictures and benchmarks of Nvidia’s elusive GT 1010 have surfaced. Sadly, Nvidia seems to be ignoring a small portion of the rubbish, and the results don’t encourage reading.
An unlikely Twitter user Ultra-large GPU (via Videocardz) taken some pictures Leadtek GeForce GT 1010 and continues to publish the TimeSpy Extreme benchmark. result? Graphics score of 153. For reference, the RTX 3080 manages about 8800. RTX 2060 is about 3500. We don’t know the GT 1010’s overclocking potential, but it’s safe to say it has a bit of a catch up to match that.

We’re focusing on the GT 1010, which has previously reported Geekbench scores as similarly poor, putting it on par with the mid-range GTX 650 Ti and GTX 660 cards from a decade ago. We’re not sure if anyone has ever run TimeSpy Extreme on these cards, but if they did, they were clearly bored that day.
The GT 1010 is a Pascal generation card with 256 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory running on a 64-bit bus. It uses a PCIe x4 interface, much like the not-so-slow RX 6500 XT, although the GT 1010 is limited to PCIe 3.0. The Leadtek version features dual HDMI ports and consumes as little as 30W. The card is listed in China for about 450 yuan, or about $70.
All the teasing aside, to be fair to Nvidia, the GT 1010 isn’t a gaming card. It is only designed to add graphics support to systems without integrated graphics. Its limited capabilities mean it’s best suited for office machines, resurrected old machines, or tasks like signage or embedded applications.

We’re happy to see the low power consumption of 30W, which means it doesn’t require any external power, not even the most basic cooler to contend with. However, it’s not the kind of card you’ll include in your new system. Modern Intel CPUs with integrated graphics will be more efficient. But it will be a cheap card that you can add to your old system to bring it back to life.
At least its price tag is pretty decent. A $70 “new” graphics card is commendable in the current market, but from a gaming standpoint, that’s pretty much what the GT 1010 can do.
