Nvidia GTX 1650 Super Specs Leak – A huge upgrade for mid-range Geforce

Nvidia’s ready to revamp its low-end Geforce lineup, less than a year after the release of their current-generation Turing Geforce 16 series. We already know what there is to know about the GTX 1660 Super (more info here), but Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 1650 Super remains a mystery. 

The Geforce GTX 1650 Super is Nvidia’s supposed answer to AMD’s RX 5500, offering an upgrade to GDDR6 memory, a 50% boost to in memory performance and a 40% increase in CUDA core count. Add this to Nvidia’s boosted core clock speeds, and we have an insane upgrade on our hands. These leaked specifications come via Videocardz.  

What’s most noteworthy about the GTX 1650 Super is that it uses Nvidia’s TU116 graphics core, making it a cut-down version of Nvidia’s GTX 1660. This means that this isn’t really a super version of the GTX 1650, it’s a GTX sub-1660. That said, this change is good for gamers, especially game streamers, as TU-116 contains Nvidia’s upgraded NVENC encoder, a feature that the GTX 1650 and its TU-117 core lacks.  

With Nvidia upgrading the GTX 1660 Super with GDDR6 memory, we can guess that Nvidia’s original GTX 1660 was bandwidth starved. This leads us to believe that the GTX 1650 Super will offer performance that’s very similar to Nvidia’s original GTX 1660. Yes, the GTX 1650 Super has less VRAM and fewer CUDA cores, but it offers the same memory bandwidth, and if the GTX 1660 was bandwidth staved, that means that the GTX 1650 Super should be able to deliver similar, if not identical performance in some modern gaming titles. 

Another thing that’s worth noting is that in terms of CUDA core count and memory bandwidth, the GTX 1650 Super’s leaked specs are identical to Nvidia’s GTX 1060. The only major difference is Turing’s architectural changes, which means that the GTX 1650 Super should outperform Nvidia’s GTX 1060 in most modern games. 

Rumour has it that Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Super will release on November 22nd 2019.
