Nvidia has not been lazy in the past year, where the company unveiled the RTX 2000 series last autumn. This was then followed by the GTX 1600 series which peeled off ray tracingfunctions for the middle class and down. Later, the updated RTX 2000 Super series was also launched during the summer.
Nvidia does not stop there, however, but earlier in September it was rumored that the company is working on a Geforce GTX 1660 Super which is equipped with faster GDDR6 memory. Even the simpler model GTX 1650 Ti has previously flourished in rumors, and now information from the Chinese website Ithome claims that the model will arrive in October to meet the Radeon RX 5600 series.
In terms of price, the model will qualify for USD 155, corresponding to around SEK 1,900 including VAT. The price means a straight collision course against GTX 1650, which has a recommended price of 150 USD. Whether this means that the price will be higher in practice, or whether Nvidia chooses to lower the price of the GTX 1650 remains to be seen.
The graphics circuit to be used is not yet known, but it is likely to be either a full-scale TU117 or a scaled-down TU116 housed in the GTX 1660. That would mean between 1,024 and 1,280 CUDA cores, paired with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 128-bit wide memory bus. Little brother GTX 1650, on the other hand, has only 896 CUDA cores.
Finally, the Geforce GTX 1650 Ti is said to be launched on October 22. If there is a counterattack against AMD’s equivalent in the rumored RX 5600 series, it could mean that it also appears around the same time.
