Nvidia is rumored to delay the release of GTX 1630 and RTX 40 series graphics cards

It was previously reported that Nvidia plans to update its entry-level lineup with the GeForce GTX 1630 based on the Turing architecture on June 15, 2022. At the same time, the GeForce RTX 40 series based on the Ada Lovelace architecture GPU is likely to be released this fall.

According to VideoCardz, Nvidia notified its partners a few days before the launch of the GeForce GTX 1630, changing the release time to “TBD,” (to be declared). Of course, this isn’t the first time the GeForce GTX 1630 has been delayed. In fact, the original plan was for May 31, 2022, and Nvidia’s partners should already be producing the graphics card. Due to the current Nvidia decision to suspend the GeForce GTX 1630 project, partners can only wait for an update on the release time.

It seems that not only the GeForce GTX 1630 is affected, but also the GeForce RTX 40 series that many gamers are looking forward to.  Nvidia has been rumored to have delayed the release of the GeForce RTX 40 series by a month, although there is a lack of confirmation from more sources for the time being. Nvidia’s wobbles may be related to the rapid changes in the graphics card market. It is rumored that its partner’s GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards have a large inventory, which will take more time to digest, and there may be further price cuts.
