Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 Price and Availability

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 Price and availability (2022): The GeForce GTX 1630 price starts at $199 for the EVGA model. While the Colorful GTX 1630 model is priced at $169. The desktop graphics card is now available for purchase via the EVGA website. After some initial delays, the  Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 was finally launched on June 28, 2022.

Nvidia today quietly launched the GeForce GTX 1630, an entry-level graphics card set to compete against the AMD Radeon RX 6400 and Intel Arc 380M as a basic upgrade to integrated graphics. The GTX 1630 is based on a Turing TU117-150 graphics processor and sports 512 CUDA cores. For comparison, the new card lags behind the GTX 1650 model with its 896 cores, and even fails to keep up with the six-year-old GTX 1050 Ti (768 cores).

The entry-level card features 4GB of  GDDR6 memory clocked at 12 Gbps. It delivers a maximum bandwidth of 96 GB/s which is half that of the GTX 1650. And compared to the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, a Pascal series GPU from six years ago, the latest GTX 1630 falls behind in bandwidth too. (Similar post – Affordable gaming laptops to buy)

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 comes with a 1785 MHz core clock and 75W TDP. Additionally, the card has fewer cores and a reduced memory bus. It is shipping with 512 CUDA cores and features a 64-bit memory bus. We’ll be comparing the GTX 1630 with other video cards in this range in our subsequent articles.

How is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630 for gaming? Not great. The card struggled across every gaming benchmark, failing to reach 30 frames per second on most tests and averaging just 24 fps at 1080p settings across the wide range of titles.

It is best as a low-cost option for a productivity desktop that lacks integrated graphics. The GTX 1630 will provide a significant boost over any integrated solutions and has enough oomph to play less demanding games at 1080p on lower settings.
