The gaming component and peripherals company GALAX has launched a new product called the GTX 1650 Ultra. However, its GPU is not that of the original non-ray-tracing Turing variant, but of underpowered chips left out of other cards such as the RTX 2070. Then again, its TDP is higher than some others of its name.

As if to confirm earlier rumors, NVIDIA has crafted yet another GPU out of old Turing parts to release under the GTX 1650 name. This one is based on a variant of TU106 chips, which also made up the RTX 2070 on its launch. In addition, it, like all other recent refreshes of this card, has newer GDDR6 memory. However, these newer ones have several differences compared to the originals.

According to a specs sheet posted by Videocardz, this new version of the GPU (TU106-125) has only about 39% of the cores of its "full-fat" counterpart, the TU106-400. On the other hand, it does find a middle ground between existing GDDR6 GTX 1650 variants in another important aspect. It has a TDP of 90W, whereas the SUPER has 100 and the vanilla model gets 75.

The new variant retains the same clock speeds as its non-SUPER siblings, however. It has been picked up by GALAX, which calls its new package for it the GTX 1650 Ultra. It has reportedly just been launched, yet lacks pricing or availability information at this point.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
