I have been experiencing kernel panics roughly once per day since upgrading to Mavericks, but they overwhelmingly occur while I am doing something graphically intensive (eg: switching desktops, using Google Earth software). This one occurred out of the blue, during no irregular demands on my GPU.

In an effort to isolate the problem, I have uninstalled all third party kernel extensions.

I have a 2010 Macbook Pro and fear that it may be a logic card issue.

If so, can anybody explain what exactly this hardware issue is, and why the new OS is manifesting it?

Yes - someone can explain the dump, but that someone is Apple's engineering staff. From a user perspective, you'd need about 10 to 20 dumps to start correlating times and patterns and comparing the dump reasons to know if you have some odd timing issue, a hardware issue or some other software cause to the panics.

I would review the other answers on kernel panics here and collect a sysdiagnose each time you restart after a panic. Save them off Mac so that you have a nice collection of dates/times and the saved logs to analyze should you enroll Apple or DIY analyze them.
