According to the latest rumors, Nvidia is said to be preparing a GeForce GTX 1630 with the newly trimmed TU117 graphics processor from the Turing generation introduced in 2018 as a possible successor to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (test), which is still based on Pascal. . This means that prices below US$200 should be possible again for the first time.
What VideoCardz would like to have learned from its own sources, Nvidia is preparing an opponent for the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT (test), which has an MRSP of US$199, and the Radeon RX 6400 (reader test), which starts at US$159. dollars on the counter goes, before. Currently, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which was introduced in 2016, is still often used in this area, which is still priced from 189 euros as the last offspring of the Pascal generation.
Next, 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 GeForce GTX 1630 arrives
VideoCardz he claims that the rumors have been double-checked and that a corresponding entry-level graphics card is in the works. A potential “GeForce GTX 1630” would thus appear more than 3 years after the presentation of the geforce 16 series. Rumors still need to be treated with a great deal of caution, however, as Nvidia has so far not said a single word about positioning a potential “new” Turing graphics card at the lower end of the portfolio.
