The budget GPU market has been neglected for years. A powerful low profile single slot card can be hard to find because of this. The release of the nVidia GT 1030, I believe, has changed that perception. Zotac has taken the GT 1030 and whipped it into shape knowing that the market need a card just like this. With multiple display outputs you can now do even more.
When looking to make a workstation or home theater PC you want power, but that means noise comes along with it. Not with the Zotac GT 1030. Designed to use power more efficient Zotac was able to bring the fan noise down to just a whisper.
But what if you want to push the GT 1030 to all it can deliver. Again Zotac looked at this and resigned the GT 1030 to get every little bit of performance out of the card, plus you can use the FIRESTORM software to tweak all the setting to your liking. You can fine tune the GPU, Memory and fan speed as well.
The card comes with both full and low profile brackets, and is very easy to change out, unlike other recent low profile cards like the EVGA GT 1030.
For an entry level gaming PC, or a budget home theater setup, the Zotac GT 1030 2GB provides an excellent balance of power, low noise, low power, and cost.
