Nvidia’s rumored upcoming GeForce GTX 1630 entry-level graphics card is now set to debut on June 28, according to the latest rumours.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of a release date for the GTX 1630, and in fact this is the third date that’s been suggested via the GPU vine. First of all, this budget graphics card was supposed to launch on May 31st, before pushing the sale date to June 15th.
Apparently mid-June came and went without the GTX 1630 in sight, and now the latest word is that it will finally arrive on June 28th in just a few days VideoCardz (opens in new tab) reports. The source for this is IT home page (opens in new tab)where the tech site pulls the information from the Chinese Board Channels forum (opens in new tab)where the Colorful GTX 1630 models are mentioned as being ready to ship for a June 28 sale – meaning the cards will actually be on shelves for purchase (rather than just unveiled) then.
All of this is to be taken with great caution, of course, as the last two rumored release dates make clear – in fact, given what has happened, we’re particularly skeptical as to whether third-time speculation luck will come to fruition here.
Analysis: Release already, Nvidia (if this GPU is actually inbound)
At the very least, hopefully this is an indication that the GTX 1630 is still on the rise, as we’re excited to see what Nvidia might do with this low-end model. Even if previous rumors have been rather lukewarm regarding the claimed spec and how hobble it could be.
From what we’ve heard so far, synthetic benchmark performance shows the 1630 lagging behind the GTX 1050 Ti, and there were many doubts as to how compelling a product could be – unless Nvidia priced it really low on. And maybe those expectations have something to do with those delays.
Alternatively, maybe the 1630 just isn’t a high-priority project for Team Green and is therefore getting mixed up. Could the GTX 1630 be another rumored graphics card to end up being canceled? Well, these apparent multiple slips – and the general reception of the theoretical specifications – could indicate it. Or the rumor mill could be completely off the mark with this map point (although that seems unlikely given it keeps showing up on the release radar).
Hopefully next week we’ll finally see the GTX 1630, not least so we can find out the true specs and if they match the “GTX” branding – which has always been associated with gaming, as opposed to something very cheap that’s more in installed on a home theater PC.
