Months after unveiling the Titan RTX flagship desktop GPU with 24GB GDDR6 memory, NVIDIA has now announced its cheapest Turing gaming GPU with the launch of the GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and 1660Ti mobile GPU. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU will be available for a starting price of Rs 12,999 for entry-level gaming.
The GTX 1650 uses Nvidia’s TU117 Turing GPU architecture which has previously been made available in GTX 20-series flagship GPUs. The graphics card comes with twice as much performance as the four-year-old GeForce GTX 950 and up to 70 percent more performance than the GTX 1050.
The GeForce GTX 1650 card comes with 896 CUDA cores and is clocked at 1485MHz for the base frequency with 1665MHz when boosted to the peak. It’s fitted with a 128-bit 4GB GDDR5 memory with 8Gbps memory speed and 128GB/s memory bandwidth.
Though the GTX 1650 doesn’t support ray-tracing, it features variable rate shading, enhanced NVENC encoder, enhanced memory compression and more due to its Turing architecture.
Nvidia also unveiled the budget-centric GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card for gaming laptops which is set to offer 100-plus frames per second at 1080p. It equips 1536 CUDA Cores, 192-bit 6GB GDDR6 RAM, NVIDIA Encoder (NVENC) support, NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility. It offers a base frequency of 1455MHz and boost frequency of 1590MHz.
