Asus has announced two new graphics cards featuring the latest NVIDIA mainstream chipset, the Phoenix GeForce GTX 1630 and the TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630.
The Phoenix GeForce GTX 1630 features a single Axial-tech fan design with dual ball-bearings and IP5X dust resistance. This two-slot graphics card is under seven inches long. It is built using Asus Auto-Extreme Technology, which is reported to solder components without human intervention. Afterward, the graphics cards reportedly undergo a gauntlet of testing that lasts 144 hours.
Asus has also offered the TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 and TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1630 OC Edition. With boost clocks of up to 1815 MHz on the OC Edition (1845 MHz in OC mode) and 4 GB of GDDR6 RAM, these graphics cards can reportedly handle the latest esports titles at smooth frame rates. Both TUF Gaming models are 2.3 slots wide and over eight inches long. Featuring a dual fan design with space-grade lubricant, the TUF Gaming cards share the same Auto-Extreme assembly process and 144-hour validation as the Phoenix GeForce GTX 1630. With HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4a and DVI-D ports, these graphics cards can also be used by multi-monitor enthusiasts who want to upgrade an existing setup.
As of now, no availability or pricing related information has been shared by the company.
