At this point, there’s no question that NVIDIA is releasing a new entry-level variant of its GeForce GTX Turing family of desktop graphics cards. Earlier this year, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, and then soon followed up with the GeForce GTX 1660. The final piece to the puzzle, the GeForce GTX 1650, will be released before the end of the month.
Luckily for us, we’re already getting an early glimpse at what production desktop cards will look like courtesy of a leak from Zotac. In this case, we’re seeing the Zotac Gaming GeForce GTX 1650, which comes with a total of 4GB of GDDR5 memory onboard. We see an incredibly short PCB with a single fan along with HDMI, DisplayPort and Dual Link DVI-D connectors on the back. What’s missing, however, are any hookups for power connectors, as the GeForce GTX 1650 is rumored to have a TDP of less than 75 watts.
Not be left out, we also have images of GeForce GTX 1650 cards from Gainward and Palit. Both the Gainward Pegasus OC and the Palit StormX feature single-fan designs and 4GB of GDDR5 (again, with no power connectors). According to VideoCardz, both cards have a base GPU clock of 1665MHz and a boost clock of 1725MHz. Unlike the aforementioned Zotac card, these two offerings come with just two display connectors: HDMI and DVI-D.
It has been reported that reference GeForce GTX 1650 cards use the TU117 GPU, have a base clock of 1.4GHz and a boost clock of 1.56GHz. The memory bus is reportedly 128 bits wide with an effective clock speed of 2GHz, giving these cards around 128GB/sec of bandwidth.
Rumors are pointing towards an April 22ndlaunch for the GeForce GTX 1650. It has been suggested that the cards will be priced from $179.
