A graphics card which has already floated rumours and speculations about it made its first appearance in the Final Fantasy XV benchmark scoreboard. This graphics card is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650. Having already released the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660, Nvidia is expected to release the GTX 1650 either by March end or April end as reported by different reports.

If reports are to be believed, then this card will have different silicon compared to its predecessors. TSMC is coming up with the TU117 (as compared to TU116 in the previous models) which should come without the RT cores, real-time ray tracing, or Tensor cores, for AI workloads. Another rumour surrounding it is that it is expected to support about 896 CUDA cores and it is also possible that it may feature the 1,485MHz base clock and a boost clock that climbs over the 1,600MHz mark. The reports do not say anything about whether it is for the mobile or the desktop version.

The card was tested at the 2560×1440 resolution with the Lite Quality preset and shows that its performance is more or less similar to the GTX 1050 Ti with a total difference of less than 1 percent. We are also not sure about the price, which as of now is about $179. One thing that we do know for sure is that it is 4GB of memory clocked at 2,000MHz (8,000MHz).
