NVIDIA’s recently launched GTX 16xx series GPUs helped fill in the gap in the GPU market that was much required. The GTX 1660 Ti launched first, having performance equivalent to the GTX 1070, followed closely by the launch of the GTX 1660, which seems to be slightly better than the GTX 1060. Leaks from the Eurasian Economic Commission’s (EEC’s) website officially confirm the presence of a GTX 1650, the entry level GPU for the GTX 16xx series.
The GTX 16xx series do not support real-time ray-tracing or DLSS due to the lack of tensor and RT cores. The Turing (TU117) architecture, 12nm structure width and features like NVIDIA Adaptive Shading are decent additions that make the entry level Turing GPUs more appealing to the mass consumers.
The listing discovered mentions a GTX 1650 from MSI. The listing mentions the card as a “GeForce GTX 1650 GAMING X 4G”, meaning that it is a MSI Gaming X edition GPU with 4 gigabytes of video memory. A follow up announcement of a GTX 1650Ti along with the GTX 1650 is also likely, and is expected to happen by the end of April.
