The GPU arrives with several models from partner manufacturers
After several rumors about his arrival, the The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1630 is officially released. NVIDIA’s new entry-level graphics card uses a weaker variant of the Graphics card TU117, the same that equips the GTX 1650, both based on the Turing architecture. NVIDIA’s price suggestion for the GTX 1630 is between $140 and $150although some models already cost $200.
While the GTX 1650 has 896 CUDA cores, the GTX 1630 only has 512, even less than the 768 cores of the GTX 1050 Ti. Like the card that uses the same GPU, the GTX 1630 is also equipped with 4 GB of GDDR6 memorybut with half the memory bus, 128 bits of the GTX 1650 now for 64 bit in the newest member of the NVIDIA lineup.
Still in terms of memory, the GTX 1630 delivers 96 GB/s bandwidth, against 128.1 GB / s compared to its more powerful sister (GTX 1650). The difference is not greater, as the new entry GPU has memories running at 12 Gbpsdifferent from the 8 Gbps of the GTX 1650.
The GTX 1630 will have frequencies in 1785MHz, but some manufacturers will ship their cards configured above 1800 MHz. All these specifications make the video card have 75W maximum TDPthe same as the GTX 1650 consumes.

The GTX 1630 falls considerably short of the RX 6400 in games
There are models from Gigabyte, MSI, Inno3D, PNY, Colorful, EVGA, Zotac, Palit, and Gainward, which was the model (Gainward GTX 1630 Ghost) that TechPowerUp used in its review. The model tested by the website had a maximum power consumption of 65W, which is 10W less than the PCIe connection. In games, the GTX 1630 does not even reach 50W.
As for gaming performance, which everyone cares about, the GTX 1630 lags considerably behind the GTX 1650 and even the AMD Radeon RX 6400, the current weakest GPU on the market. The RX 6500 XT, for example, has twice the performance, according to TechPowerUp’s test.
Unfortunately, the test doesn’t put the GTX 1050 Ti in the equation, as NVIDIA’s goal with the GTX 1630 should be to replace the infamous entry-level GPU released in 2016. No information on the availability of the GTX 1630 has not been released.
