GTX 1650: Release Date, Price, Specifications, And All We Know

GTX 1650 Release date

People have been desperately waiting for the release of Nvidia’s budget GPU, and while many GPUs come to mind when thinking about one, I don’t think that any of them beats the GTX 1650. This is one GPU that we all knew was coming; many wanted to try it out to see if it actually lives up to the hype. So, those who have gotten the chance to test it have let us know, and we’ll be discussing the GTX 1650 in detail down in this post. So, let’s get started!

Here’s everything about the Graphics card at a glance:

Architecture: TU117
Process: 12nm
Transistors: 4.7 billion
Die size: 200mm^2
SMs: 14
CUDA Cores: 896
Base Clock: 1485MHz
Boost Clock: 1665MHz
VRAM Speed: 8000Gbps
Bus width: 128-bit
ROPs: 32
TMUs: 56
GFLOPS: 2984
Bandwidth: 128GB/s
TDP: 75W
Launch Price: $149

The GTX 1650 is said to be the last implementation of the Turing architecture. As expected, it uses a new TU117 GPU. It has 4GB of GDDR5, clocked at 8GT/s—the same speed as the GTX 1660. There are four active memory controllers in this one, and they’re all on a 128-bit bus, which additionally gives it 128GB/s of bandwidth. As far as the GPU core goes, TU117 and the GTX 1650 has 14 SMs, which amounts to 896 CUDA cores and 56 texture units.

At a base price of $149, the GTX 1650 is slightly more expensive than the 1050 Ti, but it is also better from what we know. As far as performance goes, Nvidia made bold claims that suggest that the GTX 1650 twice as fast as a GTX 950, and 50 percent faster than the GTX 1050. With that in mind, it should be about 25-30 percent faster than the GTX 1050 Ti.
