Rumor: NVIDIA could unveil a GeForce GTX 1630 this month (updated)

Published by


The GTX 1630, a graphics card targeting the underserved low-end market, may arrive very soon. In the past, we have seen graphics cards such as the GT 730 and GT 1030, but the truth is that these are now fairly outdated options. 

NVIDIA quit the low-end market for a period of time when GPU costs rose. The business announced the RTX 3050 graphics card in January of this year, fourteen months after the initial Ampere models were introduced. Nonetheless, with an introductory price of $249 USD, this model is still out of reach for the majority of gamers. AMD debuted the Radeon RX 6500XT and RX 6400 cards roughly simultaneously about a month ago, creating an issue for NVIDIA in the low-end GPU market. The reds recently started a marketing campaign that compares the value of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 to that of the GeForce RTX 30, GTX 16/10. According to the reds, the AMD Radeon RX 6000 is cheaper and performs better than the GeForce RTX 30, GTX 16/10.

However, it is also true that the pricing difference between AMD and NVIDIA on the low-end market is substantial, especially when you consider that these cards were not meant for intensive ray tracing gameplay.According to the leak, the GeForce GTX 1630 will replace the GTX 1050 Ti and will likely cost less than 190 USD (current GTX 1650 price). Currently, the GTX 1630's specifications are unknown, however it is anticipated to have a TU117 (Turing) GPU with a power consumption of less than 75 W and GDDR6 memory.

The GTX 1650 is available in five variants, including the GPU-based TU106, TU116, and TU117, as well as a SUPER model. However, not all of these cards are accessible everywhere, and the same approach may be utilized with the GTX 1630. This is the second time we've heard about the GTX 1630, and from what we can see, it appears that it will be released shortly, either by the end of this month or in June.

Update: The GTX 1630 is built on the GTX 1650 and has 512 CUDA cores, 4 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a 64-bit memory interface. This is a decrease from the GTX 1650's 896 CUDA cores and 128-bit memory bus, although the boost frequency is 1800 MHz @ 75 W. This memory arrangement has 96 GB/s of theoretical bandwidth, half of the GDDR6 GTX 1650's. NVIDIA's Computex speech next week may introduce the GeForce GTX 1630.

Unlike prior rumors, Nvidia does not intend to make the GTX 1630 available starting today. The card would be available for purchase on June 15, no review embargo is stated. The suggested retail price has yet to be determined, and it is possible that this GPU will only be offered in select locations.
