NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Turing GPU Leak Suggests $149 MSRP And April 23 Launch
There have been numerous leaks pointing to an upcoming GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and at this point, we would be shocked if it did not exist—there is too much evidence to suggests it does. What we are less fuzzy on, however, is when it will launch and for how much. Perhaps a fresh leak provides some clarification on those things.
Some GeForce GTX 1650 listings have popped up on Amazon's website in France. The listings show several SKUs from EVGA, including the GeForce GTX 1650 XC Gaming, GeForce GTX 1650 XC Black Gaming, GeForce GTX 1650 XC Ultra Gaming, and GeForce GTX 1650 XC Ultra Black Gaming, priced from €169.99 to €189.99 (~$192 to $215 in US currency).
Those are custom models, each one presumably overclocked over NVIDIA's reference specs. According to Videocardz, the actual MSRP is $149 for a stock card that sticks to the reference blueprint. It's not clear how many vendors will stick to the stock script, so street pricing could be a little higher initially. We won't know until the card actually launches.
We will not have to wait long to find out. The same source pegs the release date as April 23, which is now less than a week away. That is a bit sooner than previous leaks have indicated. A rather thin rumor from earlier this year had the GeForce GTX 1650 priced at $179 and launching on April 30. Those are still in play, of course, until they aren't.
If the rumored information is correct, the GeForce GTX 1650 will have 896 CUDA cores with a 1,485MHz base clock and 1,665MHz boost clock, along with 4GB of GDDR5 memory and a 128-bit memory bus, for 128GB/s of memory bandwidth.
It's essentially a cut down version of the GeForce GTX 1660, which sports 1,408 CUDA cores clocked at 1,530MHz to 1785MHz, with 6GB of GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit bus, for 192GB/s of memory bandwidth. That part costs $219.
