NVIDIA sets the launch date for GTX 1630
We now have ‘almost’ full details on the upcoming new entry-level GPU.
We have been provided with the specs and launch date for GeForce GTX 1630, NVIDIA’s first GTX x30 model (not GT). This card will be based on GTX 1650 model with some ‘necessary’ cutbacks.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1630 will be based on 12nm Turing TU117-150 GPU. It carries different specs than GTX 1650 TU117-300. We are looking at even fewer cores and reduced memory bus. The GTX 1630 will ship with 512 CUDA cores, which is half of what the full GPU offers. Furthermore, the card will feature a 64-bit memory bus, which is again half of the full 128-bit config.
The GTX 1630 will feature a much higher boost clock than the GTX 1650 series. According to our information, the GPU clock goes up to 1800 MHz. Interestingly, this might be the reason why the TDP has not been reduced and remains at 75W.
The card will feature 4 GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 12 Gbps. This means that the maximum theoretical bandwidth will be 96 GB/s, not a huge downgrade compared to GTX 1650 with GDDR5 memory (the original SKU), but that’s only a half of what the GDDR6 model offers.
NVIDIA has set the launch date for May 31st. This probably means we will be hearing some news next week at Computex keynote. The pricing has not yet been confirmed.
