Nvidia presents the GeForce GTX 1650 of 159 euros: features and performance

Nvidia has finally renewed the graphics cards in that most attractive point of price of 100 to 200 euros with the GTX 1650. It comes for a price of 159 euros and it will be great to play at a resolution of 1080p for those who want to limit the Spending to the maximum but still play with good graphic quality. At the end of the day its performance would be below but close to the GTX 1060.
The graphic chip used for this graphic card model is the TU117, and specifically a shortened version of it. This model remains in 896 CUDA cores distributed in fourteen multiprocessors of data flows (SM) instead of the sixteen maximums that the TU117 has (1024 CUDA cores), operating at a base frequency of 1485 MHz and a turbo of 1685 MHz.

It lacks raytracing and tensor cores  what Nvidia considers to be its RTX technology  but it maintains the Turing architecture and all the benefits in terms of execution of instructions per cycle (IPC) and others that the Turing architecture itself has . The size of this chip is 200 mm 2compared to 284 mm 2 of the TU116 or 445 mm 2 of the TU106. It is manufactured with a lithographic process of 12 nm by TSMC, so there are no changes in this field, and includes 4700 million transistors.

It has 4 GB of GDD5 memory at 8 GHz, which limits the raster units (ROP) to 32 and also reduces to 56 the units of texturing (TPU). With these changes and reduction of the chip, it goes on to consume 75 W, and therefore it can work without additional power, extracting only the one from the PCIe slot in which it is inserted. That also means that Nvidia advises only 300 W sources on the computers where it is used. The maximum operating temperature of this chip is 92 ºC.


At the moment there is no analysis of these graphics cards GTX 1650, but as indicated by Nvidia and other rumors, its performance would be on the GTX 1060 of 3 GB, although we must wait to see how it behaves more accurately in different games and, above all, 1080p. Although, yes, this means that it will also work well at 1080p and 144 Hz in electronic sports games, or QHD and 60 Hz in this type of games.
