Nvidia Debuts the GeForce GTX 1630, Its Most Affordable Current GPU

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 is the newest entry-level GPU and the first 30 series graphics card with the GTX branding.


has taken the wrapper off its latest graphics card, the GTX 1630. This is an entry-level GPU that the company is positioning for light casual gamers and standard computing tasks. The GTX 1630 has only been announced so far in with a price equivalent to $150.

We can expect that price to translate to other markets when the GeForce GTX 1630 arrives globally, more or less.

It is worth noting the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 is an important product because it is the first 30-series GPU to have the GTX branding. Even so, it is not going to provide the sort of power you usually get from a GTX card.

Of course, you shouldn't really expect blazing performance from this card considering its pricing and specs. Speaking of which, 1630 has the Turing TU117-150 core. It cuts most of the specs of the next-level GPU (GTX 1650) in half.

For example, the memory bus is 64-bit instead of 128-bit. That may cause issues in modern games, which is why Nvidia is marketing the GTX 1630 as a GPU for casual gamers. Elsewhere, the new card has 4GB of GDDR6 memory and TDP of 75w.
