Nvidia has delayed the launch of the GTX 1630
It’s fairly usual in the tech business to postpone the release of a product, and most of the time, there’s a good reason for it. The same can’t be true for everyone, as Intel’s Arc desktop graphics cards aren’t expected until Q4, which is a long way off from when they were originally planned. AMD and Nvidia are no strangers to moving release dates back, and it appears that team green has delayed the release date of a future GPU in this case.
According to a new claim from Videocardz, Nvidia has postponed the debut of the GTX 1630, a card that is actually based on the Turing architecture from the previous generation, citing its own sources. The story goes on to suggest that the GPU’s new release date is “to be determined,” leaving many people in the dark. It was scheduled to launch relatively soon, and the reason for the delay appears to be related to “securing the essential components,” rather than the GPU itself.
Last month, rumors began to surface that Nvidia was planning to produce a new GTX graphics card, ostensibly to replace the 1050 Ti, which was released in 2016. The 1630 will undoubtedly represent the far lower end of the industry, appropriate for individuals who are looking for a cheap card, with a TDP of just 75W and 4 GB of GDDR6 on a 12 Gbps bus. Despite the delay, board partners appear to have received a Go To Market Kit on May 31, and the first graphics cards have already been produced.
Furthermore, it was recently disclosed that Nvidia may have postponed the RTX 40-series. Originally, the RTX 4090 was expected to arrive in August, with other versions following in the months after that. However, it’s probable that Team Green has postponed the launch by a month, making a September release date more likely. Given that AMD’s RDNA 3 is expected to be released by October at the earliest, both of these tech behemoths will be vying for industry domination once more. While Intel appears to be on its own, AMD and Nvidia are making progress in getting the next generation of graphics cards onto store shelves. All of this sounds excellent, as long as the market improves following all of the shortages.
