Theoretically just available, the graphics cards GTX 1630 will clearly not be the best gaming companions.

After prolonging the suspense for a few weeks, NVIDIA has decided to distribute its most accessible graphics card model for a while, the GeForce GTX 1630.

Half as fast as an RX 6500 XT

Our colleagues from TechPowerUp were able to get their hands on a model from Gainward – GeForce GTX 1630 Ghost – and they didn’t hesitate to carry out a complete test of it.

No need to beat around the bush, this GTX 1630 is clearly not a thunderbolt. Its objective is therefore not, as we have known for several weeks now, to delight video game enthusiasts looking for an accessible card.

The beast is designed around a TU117-150 GPU with 512 CUDA cores. It is much less than the GTX 1650 which was not a monster. In reality, the card is slower than the Radeon RX 6400 and the Radeon RX 6500 XT – tested in our columns – is twice as fast.

Less than 40 fps in FullHD on F1 2021

As you can see below, even at 1080p the GTX 1630 is significantly outperformed by the Radeon RX 6400. On a well-optimized game like F1 2021it cannot ensure an average of 40 frames per second in Full HD and will therefore be very limited in game.

To make matters worse, its consumption is not even that interesting since it is at the level of that of the Radeon RX 6400 at more or less 49 Watts. It’s better than the GTX 1650 (~74 Watts) and the GTX 1630 is significantly more powerful than the GT 1030 it replaces.

Among the strengths it can claim are the two DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0b, as well as its 4 GB of video memory and its more ambitious video decoder than that of the GT 1030. The future of the GTX 1630 will rest so on its price: at 150 euros, it would be far too expensive…
