ASUS has announced graphics gas pedals based on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1630.Three models made their debut-- Phoenix GeForce GTX 1630 4GB, TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 4GB and TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 OC Edition 4GB.Image source: ASUSThe new products are based on the TU117-150 chip with Turing architecture.The Phoenix GeForce GTX 1630 4GB and TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 4GB models run at default default frequencies of 1740 MHz (base) and 1785 MHz (turbo).TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 OC Edition 4GB graphics cards are overclocked: working at 1740/1815 MHz in Gaming Mode and up to 1845 MHz in OS Mode, Phoenix series cards are equipped with cooling system with one fan, while TUF-version has cooling unit with two fans.A PCI Express 3.0 slot is required to install the new products.They are equipped with DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4a connectors and use Auto-Extreme technology, which means 100% automated manufacturing process to ensure reliability and durability.
NVIDIA officially introduced GeForce GTX 1630 - $150 entry-level graphics card based on Turing architecture
NVIDIA officially introduced the entry-level graphics gas pedal GeForce GTX 1630.At the heart of the graphics card is the TU117-150 generation Turing.Picture source: HXLThe new GPU features 512 CUDA cores.For comparison, the model GeForce GTX 1650 has 896 cores.Otherwise, the novelty is very similar to the older model: the same architecture, the same PCB, the same indicator of power consumption of 75 W and the same cooling system options.There is no reference version of novelties, only variants from partners NVIDIA.The graphics card has 4 GB of GDDR6 memory with an effective frequency of 12 GHz, as in the older model.To tell the truth, nowadays the memory bus bit width is less and makes up only 64 bits instead of 128.This decreases the memory bandwidth to only 96 GB/s instead of 192 GB/s.This is even lower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti on the Pascal architecture from 2016.Memory bandwidth greatly affects the performance of the graphics card, especially when using high resolution.Therefore, it is very difficult to call the GeForce GTX 1630 a gaming gas pedal.Apparently, NVIDIA believes otherwise.According to earlier rumors, the GeForce GTX 1630 will be even slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.NVIDIA does not provide official charts with performance data.Image source: VideoCardzAt the moment we know that GeForce GTX 1630 will be sold in China, where it is estimated at 1000-1100 yuan (about $150 including VAT), depending on the model.Information on the recommended price of the gas pedal for other markets is not yet available.
NVIDIA postponed GeForce GTX 1630 release until June 15 - memory will be slower than GTX 1050 Ti
Entry-level graphics gas pedal GeForce GTX 1630 will go on sale on June 15, reports VideoCardz, citing its sources.NVIDIA has allegedly moved the release date of the new product for two weeks - previously reported that the graphics card will appear on the shelves on May 31.Image source: VideoCardzThe only release date of the graphics card is known from the source.There is no information about the timing of the lifting of the ban on the publication of reviews of the gas pedal yet.Earlier it was reported that GeForce GTX 1630 will be based on 12nm Turing graphics processor TU117-150.This is a \"cut\" version of the chip TU117-300, which is used in the model GeForce GTX 1650.The TU117-150 has 512 CUDA cores.The GeForce GTX 1650 has 896 of them.Novelty supports only 64-bit memory bus, which is half the capabilities of the older version. The card will get 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at 12 Gbit/s per pin.However, its bandwidth is reduced to 96 GB/s because of the low interface bit rate.Thus, the memory here is slower than the six-year-old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti generation Pascal, which should be replaced by a new gas pedal GeForce GTX 1630.Information about the recommended price model GeForce GTX 1630 yet.
GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card will get 512 CUDA cores and 4 GB GDDR6 - release on May 31
The other day it became known that NVIDIA is preparing to release an entry-level graphics card GeForce GTX 1630.Now its specifications have appeared on the pages of the VideoCardz portal.In addition, the resource sources have reported on the expected date of release of novelties. Image source: VideoCardzGraphic processor TU117-150 Turing generation on the basis of 12nm production process will be used in GeForce GTX 1630.This is a scaled down version of the chip TU117-300, which is used in the GeForce GTX 1650.There are 512 CUDA cores in TU117-150 chip, which is half the size of the full chip.Novelty supports only 64-bit memory bus, which again is half the capabilities of the older version.On the other hand, the GeForce GTX 1630 GPU will run at higher frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1650.According to VideoCardz sources, the maximum GPU frequency of the younger model will be 1800 MHz.In GeForce GTX 1650 maximum frequency is 1665 MHz.That is why the TDP rate of new products will be like in GTX 1650, equal to 75 W.The new card will get 4 GB of GDDR6 memory with 12 Gbit/sec per pin.Thus, its theoretical throughput will be 96 Gbps, not much less than 128 GB/sec at GeForce GTX 1650, which uses GDDR5 memory.According to VideoCardz, release of GeForce GTX 1630 is scheduled for May 31.It is likely that more details about the new product will be available next week at Computex exhibition.There is no information about the price of the gas pedal yet.
NVIDIA will release an entry-level graphics card GeForce GTX 1630 - it will replace the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
NVIDIA is going to release an entry-level graphics card GeForce GTX 1630.This information was provided by VideoCordz, citing its sources.The novelty should come to replace the model GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which is still actively used in budget systems.Image source: VideoCardzRemind that the last model of the gas pedal GTX series with Turing architecture - GeForce GTX 1650 - was released by NVIDIA in April 2019, that is, three years ago.A lot has changed in the market since then.The beginning of the semiconductor shortage effectively killed the entire entry-level segment of video cards.And while NVIDIA did eventually release an entry-level GeForce RTX 3050 model as part of its current Ampere line of graphics cards with a recommended price of $249, this gas pedal currently sells for $330, making it much less appealing to many potential buyers.AMD, which in turn released such graphics cards as the Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon RX 6400 with recommended prices of $199 and $159 respectively, is well aware that the competitor has problems with entry-level gas pedals.AMD recently launched a promotional campaign in which it compared the Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards in terms of performance per dollar spent to competitive solutions.At the bottom of the graphics cards segment is clearly visible the difference in this ratio between AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards, where the same Radeon RX 6400 cost $160 is more profitable than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.Image source: AMD writes VideoCardz, GeForce GTX 1630 model comes to replace the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, so its cost is likely to be below $ 190, for which the current GeForce RTX 1650.At the moment, information about the specifications of the GeForce GTX 1630 is unknown.It can be assumed that the new card will be based on the NVIDIA TU117 (Turing) GPU and its power consumption will be below 75W.In addition, it is likely to receive memory of GDDR6 standard.It should be recalled that the GeForce GTX 1650 model is available in five different versions based on chips TU106, TU116 and TU117, and including the Super version.
