With Nvidia launching more GeForce 16 series graphics cards in the coming months, any leaks or rumors are valuable information to us all. With regards to this, some info was leaked about the entry-level GTX 1650, which is based on the Turing architecture. The specifications and pricing seem to have surfaced.
The GeForce GTX 1650 will be targeting the budget range with a price of $179. This low pricing is a crucial economic factor, and will most likely drive up sales and result in profits. According to leaks from TUM APISAK, the GTX 1650 features 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM which operates at speeds of 8 Gbps. This would approximately be a 14% increase in bandwidth compared to the GTX 1050.
The card is rumored to use the TU107 GPU core, but that isn’t confirmed yet.
Usually, every Turing card receives a core count bump over its predecessor. If the trend continues, the GTX 1650 should have somewhere between 896 to 1024 cores. Compared to Pascal, the cards have improved by about 50% in shading performance per core.
