Nvidia is said to be working on a new low-end desktop graphics card called the GeForce GTX 1630. It is said to be a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti successor and aims to compete with AMD's Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon 6400. Update 19/05/2022: The full GeForce GTX 1630 spec sheet has been revealed.

UPDATE 19/05/2022: Videocardz has posted the full GeForce GTX 1630 spec sheet. It features a TU117-150 GPU, 4 GB of 12 Gbps VRAM on a 64-bit bus (96 GB/s total bandwidth), a TGP of 75W and, a boost clock of 1.8 GHz. Nvidia plans to release the graphics card on May 31.

Nvidia is geared up to launch its most questionable graphics card to date (more than the GeForce RTX 2050, even), according to a report by Videocardz. This time around, it is called the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630. It is a desktop-grade card and uses a nearly two-generation old Turing GPU, presumably the TU117, the same one powering the GeForce GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1630, much like the rest of the GTX 1600, series is expected to run GDDR6 VRAM (likely 4 GB). It is rumoured to draw 75 Watts of power, meaning that it could theoritically run off a PCI-e slot without external power connectors. Other parameters such as its base/boost clock speeds, CUDA core count, memory speed, etc. could be a tad lower than the GeForce GTX 1650. Nvidia could, in all likelihood, be scraping the bottom of the TU117 bin for the GTX 1630.

Nvidia's intent for the GeForce GTX 1630 is to act as a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti successor of sorts and compete with the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT and the Radeon RX 6400. Hence, one can expect it to retail at the sub US$200 price range, although it might not be released globally. Exactly when Nvidia plans to unveil the graphics card remains to be seen, especially with the Ada Lovelace based RTX 4000 series set to launch in mid-July. Even though it might seem like a gimmick straight out of someone's imagination, Videocardz claims to have confirmed the GeForce GTX 1630's existance from multiple source.
