Win Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 graphics cards - Perfect for low cost budget 4K HTPC

Thanks. Good to know it will do high bitrate HEVC. HDR probably won't have any impact. But, since Kodi doesn't do HDR and madVR does (added externally seamless) 2GB of vRAM probably isn't sufficient. Netflix won't even stream HDR to 2GB but depending on a users needs it's still decent for its price point. Some users may find the economics for popping in an entry level card in that old PC vs multiple streaming boxes a consideration. Just thinking the cheapest option, an RPI, can't do 4k or HDR so it's kinda' losing ground imo. A sub $100 GPU can do everything except maybe HDR via madVR at low settings. (just needs to passthrough) Need a confirmation yes or no from someone trustworthy who uses madVR and HDR hardware or send me a card and I'll test the @%!& out of it.
