The bottom line is that the GT 1010 is an entry-level graphics card with little performance potential at a low price. The new GPU is therefore rather uninteresting for gamers. For offices looking for a cost-effective way to equip their office PCs with a graphics card, the new model should be music to the ears – also for Amazon and other retailers.

Maybe the GT 1010 will soon find its way into our top 10, who knows?
