Nvidia already prepared its GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, which is expected to be a sub-$200 segment graphics card. The card is scheduled to release on the 22nd April. This will use the 12nn TU117 Turing architecture, possibly with the 4GB GDDR5 memory. No other information is available about the GTX 1650… yet. This should be the bottom-card for the GTX 16 series.
This will be Nvidia’s entry-level gaming grade graphics card, perhaps maybe to compete with RX 570 on paper and price segment. Generally, The AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 seems to perform 43% better than the GTX 1050 Ti. It would be amusing to see if the GTX 1050/1050 Ti provide same/better performance than the GTX 1650. There are leaks about its performance, but Final Fantasy XV is a terrible benchmark to gauge the graphics card’s performance. The FFXV database does list the GTX 1650, which proves the graphics card’s existence and readiness.
The birth of the GTX 16 series
Nvidia’s GTX 16 series is the end result of the poor reception and user’s lack of acceptance for the RTX graphics card lineups. The lack of RTX and DLSS-enabled games at launch created a mixed bag of reactions about its RTX series’ offerings. Meanwhile, AMD doesn’t really have a consistent seller since the RX 500 lineups over the newer VEGA RX 56 and RX 64 GPUs. AMD Radeon VII was disappointing because of its availability (for starters). To Nvidia’s credit, it is trying to maximize its dominance on the 1080p low-to-mid end gaming which is widely adopted by battle royale genres like Fortnite, Apex Legends and PUBG. This is excluding a plethora of other multiplayer games.
