More than three years after introducing GeForce GTX 1650, NVIDIA is now launching its slowest Turing desktop graphics. A model named GTX 1630 will occupy the lowest tier in 2022 lineup with only 512 CUDA cores. This configuration has now been confirmed by Colorful and MSI, as both companies already list the upcoming graphics card on their websites.

These specifications should not be a surprise to anyone though, as they are almost identical to what we posted a month ago. The only difference is a 1785 MHz boost clock, as opposed to reported 1800 MHz, but such clocks will in fact be available thanks to numerous factory-overclocked models.

The GTX 1630 ships with TU117-150 GPU, a cut-down variant of the slowest NVIDIA Turing GPU. The leaked specs also confirm the biggest bottleneck of this card, which is the memory bus limited to 64-bit and 96 GB/s bandwidth.

As shown above, most cards will ship with default TDP of 75W and some will offer external power connectors, usually a single 6-pin. Board partners will launch designs with dual-fan and single-fan cooling solutions. Consumers should also expect ITX and low-profile form factors. Basically the same lineup as GTX 1650 series.
