The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER might actually be a good upgrade over the GTX 1650 after all
So, this occurred sooner than we had expected. With NVIDIA apparently set to release the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER next month, we did not think that we would have heard anything more about the card for at least a few days. However, just a day after Videocardz stated that the GTX 1650 SUPER would have 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the website has revealed even more specifications.
It turns out that the GTX 1650 SUPER is not a re-named GTX 1650 Ti as we had previously thought. In fact, the former will be based on the same GPU as the GTX 1660 series, the TU116. By contrast, the GTX 1650 Ti was rumored to feature the TU117 instead, on which the GTX 1650 is based.
According to Videocardz, the GTX 1650 SUPER will have 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs, along with a 1,530 MHz base clock and 1,725 MHz boost clock. The card will have a 100 W TDP too, all of which are sizeable increases over the standard GTX 1650. Pricing still remains unknown, though.
Essentially then, the GTX 1650 SUPER represents downscaled GTX 1660 with GDDR6 VRAM operating on a 128-bit bandwidth, rather than a "SUPER" version of the GTX 1650. We should stress that the GTX 1650 SUPER will apparently not receive a Founders Edition release like the RTX 20 SUPER series did. Instead, Videocardz claims that the card will be an NVIDIA AIB-exclusive. Expect to see the GTX 1650 SUPER formally announced on November 22.
