Question 4GB DDR4 GT 1030 - is this card a legit 4GB GT 1030? Will we see more in 4GB configuration?

Oh yes, lest I forget, support for Netflix (HD? UHD? I forget) requires an Nvidia 10-series (or newer) card, with 3GB (or more) of VRAM. So this new 4GB card would fit the bill, I guess, and you wouldn't need a GTX 1050 3GB or 1050 ti 4GB as the minimum card.

Good catch. The 1030 should be just as capable of 4K Netflix as the 1050(ti) w/ =>3GB VRAM (supports PlayReady 3). Except for the price, it'd be worth trying out.

Unless NV specifically blocks the 1030 at driver level. IDK.
