NVIDIA partners could soon propose another variant of the GeForce GTX 1650 announced last year, updated in the SUPER variant in the autumn and, subsequently, re-proposed last April with GDDR6 video memory.
As reported by the well-known leaker momomo_us, it would be a revised model of the GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 that uses an NVIDIA Turing TU116-150 GPU instead of the current TU106-125. In detail, this is a Gigabyte product – GeForce GTX 1650 OC Rev 2.0 – but it cannot be excluded that other companies may also use this chip for new models of the GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6.
The use of the TU116-150 Turing GPU, used on the more powerful GTX 1660 SUPER and GTX 1650 SUPER, must not be misleading as regards the number of Cuda Cores and consequently for the performance offered.
The suffix 150 indicates that we are dealing with a GPU with some cores disabled; the "complete" variant of the TU116 chip (TU116-300-A1) offers 1408 Cuda Core, while in this case the manufacturer disables up to 41.7% of the processing units to get to the canonical 896 Cuda that characterize the GeForce GTX 1650 .
The card proposed by Gigabyte is equipped with a single fan heatsink, PCI-E 6pin power connector, a feature that suggests a slightly higher TDP than the 75W of the GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR5, most likely in line with the latest GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 (90W).
The price should remain unchanged in the $ 150 range, below we summarize the technical characteristics related to the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 OC Rev 2.0:
- GPU TU116-150
- 896 Cuda Core
- GPU frequency 1635 MHz (Boost) – 1410 MHz (base)
- 4GB GDDR6 12Gbps memory
- BUS 128 bit memory
- Memory bandwidth 192 GB / s
- PCIe 6pin power supply
- TDP 90W?
