NVIDIA puts its own game on the smallest Radeon

The GeForce GTX 1630 is a thoroughly cut GeForce GTX 1650, so it lacks quite a bit of pace.

NVIDIA has officially announced the VGA of the GeForce GTX 1630, the primary purpose of which is to AMD Radeon RX 6400 making your life more uncomfortable. The development uses a chip codenamed TU117 on a 12nm node, along with GDDR6-standard memories.

The specifications for the new VGA are summarized in the table below:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Series (with Turing Architecture)
Type 1630
GPU code name TU117
Architecture Turing
Seed clock 1740 MHz
GPU Boost Clock 1785 MHz
Number of CUDA seeds 512
Number of texturizers 32
Number of blending units 16
Number of Integer CUDA cores 512
Raster hourly performance 16 pixel
Maximum Pixel Fill Speed 28,6 GPixel/s
Maximum Texel fill speed 57,1 GTexel/s
Theoretical computing power (FP16) 3,66 TFLOPS
Theoretical computing power (FP32) 1,83 TFLOPS
Effective memory clock 12 GHz
Memory type GDDR6
Memory bus 64 bit
Memory bandwidth 96 GB / s
VRAM capacity 4 GB
PCI Express interface x16-os PCI Express 3.0

The system is considered a dull Turing architecture because it does not contain an RT core and also lacks Tensor processors. There is no official reference model in this category, nor is it now, so in terms of power consumption, it is essentially a maximum of 75 watts for the TDP at the default clock, so no six-pin PCI Express power connector is required.

In terms of outputs, DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 are mandatory, and partners can create any configuration from this. NVIDIA does not prohibit DVI either, although its use will be more of a rarity.

The GeForce GTX 1630 is priced at $ 150, but most models on the market include some extras, including better cooling, so there can be a lot of difference in terms of pricing. As mentioned in the first paragraph, the primary competitor in the development is the Radeon RX 6400, but the performance of the new GeForce doesn’t really reach that, as the novelty of the greens is roughly 40% slower than AMD’s entry-level model based on manufacturer tests. This in itself is not tragic if the difference in question is later seen on the price tags.
