NVIDIA's GTX Series Comes To A Close As Production Sets To End In Q1 2024

Farewell, GTX: the iconic name in the graphics card market will soon be history, as Board Channels forum reported that the chipmaker is planning to discontinue the remaining lineup of the GTX 16 series in Q1 2024.

The source noted that AIB partners have recently received the notification of this change, which indicates the final orders of the GTX 16 series shall be completed within this month, and no orders will be accepted moving forward. The change meant that NVIDIA will no longer have GTX-branded GPUs in the lineup, marking the end of the long and storied era of the GTX series, which includes standouts such as 8800 GTX, GTX 680, GTX 980, GTX 1080, and the hugely popular GTX 1060.

This change also means there will be a temporary vacuum on the chipmaker’s low-end lineup, as cards like GTX 1650 and GTX 1630 get retired from the portfolio. NVIDIA is currently rumored to be working on the cut-down version of the RTX 3050, with 6GB of VRAM, which is expected to somewhat fill the gap the GTX 1650 is expected to leave out. However, there is no replacement in sight for the short-lived GTX 1630 GPU for the time being.

NVIDIA’s GTX 16 series was a spin-off from the RTX 20 series, both of which share the same Turing architecture. While the RTX 20 series features groundbreaking ray tracing capabilities at the time, the GTX 16 series was relegated as a more traditional GPU offering for those who don’t need the extra RT and Tensor hardware, which may add extra cost. It is also the final generation of chips to not feature any ray tracing-related components in its silicon.

Pokdepinion: Team Green has been obviously moving upmarket in recent years – I suppose this is a gap that Intel is very keen to fill.
