Because graphics cards are not only used to power monstrous configurations dedicated to video games.

At AMD, the next generation of graphics cards - RDNA3 - is expected to arrive in the fall of 2022. At NVIDIA, this next generation - Ada Lovelace - is expected even earlier since the latest rumors suggest a possible release between July and September. Whether it's RDNA3 or Ada Lovelace, it will initially only be high-end cards, intended for wealthy enthusiasts ready to invest a lot of money in their configuration.

For the past two years, graphics cards at the opposite end of the spectrum - the entry-level models - have been somewhat forgotten. However, NVIDIA may be making a move into this niche with strong rumors of a GeForce GTX 1630 coming soon, the first x30 model after very old cards like the GT730 and GT1030. Even for the so-called GTX cards, it has been a while since NVIDIA released a new model: the GeForce GTX 1650 dates from April 2019.

For the moment, information is scarce around this GTX 1630, which should however cost less than 190 dollars (we hope even less than 150 dollars) and place itself as an alternative to the GTX 1650 to replace the GTX 1050 Ti. Relayed by Videocardz, the rumors surrounding this new card evoke a model requiring less than 75 Watts and supported by GDDR6 video memory. Above all, they speak of a card designed to cut the ground from under Intel's feet, whose entry-level Arc Alchemist is imminent. These cards are clearly not designed for big games, but they can be very useful for small configurations if the price remains moderate.
