The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is based on the TU117-300 GPU and will feature 896 CUDA cores with a base clock of 1485 MHz and a boost of up to 1665 MHz. The reference design is rated at 75 W and does not require a power connector. The 1650 is all set to launch on April 23 for an MSRP of US$149, but OEMs might offer it at slightly higher prices.

There have been many indications over the past few months pointing to the release of the GeForce GTX 1650, a new budget GPU from NVIDIA that is touted to be the successor to the GTX 1050. Now, we are getting to know more information about the specs of this new GPU and its retail price along with a launch date.

The GTX 1650 is based on the 12 nm Turing TU117-300 GPU that features 896 CUDA cores. There is speculation about a possible GTX 1650 Ti as well with a full chip TU117-400 similar to the TU116-400 (GTX 1660 Ti). The base clock for the GTX 1650 is 1,485 MHz and it can boost up to 1,665 MHz. The TDP is rated at 75 W so it does not need additional power connectors. However, AIB cards could still feature a 6-pin power connector if they are factory overclocked. The card features 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM on a 128-bit memory bus with a bandwidth of 128 GBps.

The GTX 1650 is pegged to launch on April 23 with an MSRP of US$149. There are no reference cards for this GPU so it might be hard to actually find one at this price. French site VonGuru posted screenshots of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 that is priced between €170 (US$192) to €190 (US$215) depending on the SKU. Other AIBs can be expected to price their offerings in a similar manner.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
