The news on Twitter and tech news radars pings of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 have been increasing in recent weeks.
The day before, Chinese graphics card maker Colorful added the GTX 1630 model to its product list, providing solid indicators of a forthcoming product launch. However, the company has discovered the flaws in its ways, and the product category has been removed (but it is still available in the Google internet cache). Images have also been discovered via NewFeaturesTech in addition to Nael Grewther.
Although the category was shown in the feed, Colorful didn’t give specific information about the card’s model. The actual specs are based on rumors from the past.

According to the most up-to-date information available, we know that we know that the Turing Architecture GeForce GTX1630 was created to replace the outdated Pascal architecture GTX 1050 Ti. Nvidia’s new gaming entry-level card will utilize the same TU117 graphics processor as the GTX 1650. In addition, GTX 1650 will have several essential specifications, along with memory cut-offs.

The latest graphics card from Nvidia will compete with AMD Radeon RX6400 and its Intel Arc A380. Nvidia may have used this smaller SKU to match Intel’s more affordable prices. However, a recent Chinese evaluation of the initial Arc Alchemist desktop graphics card found that it was constantly outclassed by the RX 6400 and the GTX 1650. So Nvidia is hoping to close the door to subduing competitors of the blue side by launching the new model.
