Nvidia GTX 1630 leaks, an entry level Turing card

Peter, 27 June 2022

Prices of desktop GPUs have started to normalize, but it seems that Nvidia still feels there is a need for something cheap and easy to produce - component maker Colorful has let it slip that there is an Nvidia GTX 1630 on the way.

This will be a cut down on the previous base model, the 1650. This means it is based on the Turing architecture from 2019. The difference between the GTX 16 and the RTX 20 series is that the former lacks ray tracing and tensor hardware.

According to leaked data, the GTX 1630 will have fewer CUDA cores than the 1650, which will be compensated slightly with higher clock speeds. The biggest limit to the performance, however, will be the 64-bit bus to the 4GB of GDDR6. This will result in halving the memory bandwidth compared to the 1650 (which has a 128-bit bus). Turing chips are fabbed in TSMC’s 12nm foundries, so there should be relatively little competition for capacity.

As for the Colorful GeForce GTX 1630 itself, images of it leaked recently and they showed a design similar to the GTX 1650 Battle Ax - two cooling fans, HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI outputs, plus a 6-pin power connector. That last part means that the card will exceed the maximum 75W TDP that PCIe can support.

There’s no word on when the GeForce GTX 1630 will be made official or what its MSRP will be. Official details are expected tomorrow.

With this kind of setup, I'd bet even RX 6400 can go head to head against it and win some FPS over it. And that card is a further dumbed-down notoriously hated RX 6500 XT. GTX 1630 on the other hand still features PCIe 3.0x16 bus so its performa...

Not everyone has the money to buy a Gaming Class GPU or need one and the 2 & 1 series GPU's are trash that even Intel's Integrated Graphics performs alot better. People need performance that can do light gaming or heavy work apps
