The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU is finally official. After much rumors, the baby of the Turing family is finally here, with an affordable SRP of just $149 (~RM616). For reference, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which it succeeds is priced starting from $139 (~RM575).

The GeForce GTX 1650 is promised to deliver up to 70% better performance than the GeForce GTX 1050 and double the performance of the GeForce GTX 950 at 1080p. With a TDP of just 75W, the GeForce GTX 1650 does away with any additional PCIe power connectors to represent a true plug and play upgrade.

NVIDIA highlights the G-SYNC capabilities of the GeForce GTX 1650, but personally I believe most gamers getting this card will be more interested in G-SYNC Compatible monitors given that this is an affordable entry-level Turing GPU.

Here are the specifications of the GeForce GTX 1650:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Specifications

  • TU117 @ up to 1665 MHz, 12nm FinFET
  • 896 CUDA cores
  • 4GB GDDR5 @ 8 Gbps, 128-bit memory interface
  • 75W TDP
  • No additional power connector
  • $149 (~RM615)

Since NVIDIA will not be making a GeForce GTX 1050 Founders Edition, NVIDIA’s SRP is only good for a rough estimation of its pricing. NVIDIA’s partners will determine the prices they want to charge for their custom designs, and given the wide range of designs, we can expect a pretty wide range of prices as well. The cards will be available from vendors starting today.

Pokdepinion: Definitely looking forward to throw one into an ITX gaming rig… If I had one.
