Two new snippets of information about the upcoming Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 leak out
Some of the marketing material for the forthcoming Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 has been posted online, and those hoping for something flashy in a color scheme that doesn’t consist of green and black will be disappointed. It seems the image we used (courtesy of Videocardz) on a recent report about the GTX 1650 was pretty much on the nose.
If that isn’t enough of a disappointment, then perhaps the new details about the GTX 1650’s memory will suffice to disappoint. At one point, we were expecting possibly 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. However, it now seems that the GeForce GTX 1650 will be downgraded to 4 GB of GDDR5: Transfer speeds will be slower and the power consumption will be higher.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is expected to be released on April 30 for a budget-level price of US$179. Further rumored specifications include 128-bit memory bus and 1485 MHz base clock. The GTX 1650 is believed to be based on the TU-117 GPU architecture (Turing) but will not feature Ray-tracing (RT) cores or Tensor (AI) cores.
