NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card for $169 is an identical copy of 2016’s $139 GTX 1050 Ti, as far as performance goes


NVIDIA launched the company’s new budget GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card a few days ago, priced at $169. Through testing by technology outlets such as Guru3D and TechPowerUPwe found that the new GPU is not only slower than the AMD Radeon RX 6400 RDNA 2-based GPU, but is identical to a 2016 GPU released by NVIDIA, the GTX 1050 Ti, in terms of performance.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card is equal in performance to the GTX 1050 Ti and should be the higher priced replacement

The company was pretty quiet when it launched the new GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card. NVIDIA partners showed off minor refrains, such as Inno3D, announcing new designs and resurrecting PCB and cooling technology from previous GTX 1650 models to from 2020. Inno3D was also one of the few companies to release performance results for the graphics card, which were found by It is the house.

Looking at the performance stats against other cards, it was obvious that NVIDIA was officially planning to replace the pre-existing GTX 1050 Ti. The GTX 1050 Ti, originally released in 2016, is based on NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and retails for $139. With Inno3D’s results, the NVIDIA GTX 1630 equals the GTX 1050 Ti, with a 17% improvement over the non-Ti variant of the GTX 1050. When pitted against newer games, performance lack when placed against titles like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Control and Cyberpunk 2077, all of which are graphically demanding.

The website continues to prove that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1630 includes an updated media decoder that supports VP8 and H.265 (HVEC) codecs, which the Pascal series has not seen. NVIDIA’s new GTX 1630 offers a TU117-150 GPU using a Turing-based architecture and is designed with 512 CUDA cores.

NVIDIA partners revealed pricing for the new GPU, even when NVIDIA dissuaded the issue. Computer technology brand EVGA lists the company’s GeForce GTX 1630 SC at $199, and Colorful brand has announced the retail price of its variant at $169. The official card would come out for less. Still, with the cost of inflation and the possibility of a recession, it’s unclear at this point whether this would reveal lower or higher prices.
