NVIDIA’s Entry-Level GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Rumored To Launch On 22nd of October


    According to leaks by the Chinese site ITHome, NVIDIA is set to launch the GTX 1650 Ti which will replace the old GTX 1050 Ti, and will compete with the RX 5600 series cards by AMD which were leaked not so far ago.

    If the rumors are true, the GTX 1650 Ti will be priced competitively, starting at 1,100¥, which translates to $155. However, since the GTX 1650 is priced in a similar radius, so we’d expect the 1650 Ti to be priced a little higher, at around $170.

    Rumoured spec sheet for the GTX 1650 TI

    According to the spec sheet given above, the GTX 1650 Ti will either run a TU117 GPU from the lower end GTX 1650 or a TU116 GPU from the GTX 1660. The base clock and boost clock for the GPU are not yet known but by our estimation, they will be similar to the GTX 1650 if not more. The card will feature a standard 128-bit memory bus and 4GB GDDR5 VRAM which is found in the GTX 1650.

    NVIDIA’s October release date for GTX 1650 TI makes us believe that the AMD counterpart RX 5600 release is also nearby. AMD’s lineup of RX cards has shaken up NVIDIA with high performance at reasonable prices. The RX 5700 XT’s performance is on par with the RTX 2070 at a significantly lower price with the only downside being lack of ray tracing support for the team red. Since the lower end GPU market has not yet been explored by the newer generation of AMD cards, it’d be exciting to see the GTX 1650 Ti against the RX 5600 next month.
