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.

GTX 1650 specifications

The card is rumored to use the TU107 GPU core, but that isn’t confirmed yet.

GTX 1650 specifications

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.

Nvidia’s RTX cards, in spite of their raytracing and DLSS abilities didn’t sell all that well due to the rather unjustified pricing. NVIDIA seems to be rectifying that with the GTX 16 series lineup. The GTX 1650 will operate in the budget range, so it will likely play a more positive role in the industry.

  1. I think that the GTX 1650 is going to be a failure except in laptops. It’s just not enough it if is better than the 1050 Ti. The 1050 Ti is simply too weak to handle recent games like AC Odyssey and Shadow of the tomb raider well. The 1650 has to be better than the GTX 1060 and the RX 580 or it’ll never sell. Considering that the RX 570 4GB(Rs.13799) and RX 580 4GB(Rs.13999-15499) are available for so cheap now, only a pure Nvidia fanboy would buy the 1650.
