According to the latest rumours, Nvidia is said to be launching a GeForce GTX 1630 with the again trimmed TU117 graphics processor from the Turing generation introduced in 2018 as a potential successor to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (test), which is still based on Pascal. to prepare. This means that prices below 200 US dollars should be possible again for the first time.
As VideoCardz would like to know from its own sources, Nvidia is preparing an opponent for the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT (test), which has an MRSP of 199 US dollars, and the Radeon RX 6400 (reader test), which starts at 159 US dollars the counter goes ahead. Currently, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which was introduced in 2016, is still often used in this area, which, as the last offshoot of the Pascal generation, is still traded from 189 euros.
Below the GeForce GTX 1650 with GDDR6 (test) and the GeForce GTX 1650 (test), which was originally “only” equipped with GDDR5 graphics memory, which also has a total of three different graphics processors, the TU106, the TU116 and the TU117, each with 896 CUDA cores, the GeForce GTX 1630 should be the new entry at Nvidia.
The cheapest current Ampere graphics card from Nvidia is the GeForce RTX 3050 (test), which with 8 GB GDDR6 and no real weaknesses at an RRP of 279 euros, but currently costs at least 330 euros in stores.
GeForce GTX 1630 is to come
VideoCardz states that the rumors have been verified twice and that a corresponding entry-level graphics card is in preparation. A potential “GeForce GTX 1630” would thus appear more than 3 years after the introduction of the GeForce 16 series. However, the rumors should still be treated with great caution, as Nvidia has not yet said a single word about the positioning of a possible “new” Turing graphics card at the lower end of the portfolio.
