Rumour has it that NVIDIA will be announcing a new GPU its new Turing-powered GeForce GTX series graphics cards, with the GPU in question being the GeForce GTX 1650. To that end, Final Fantasy XV benchmarks of the card have appeared, and the results are supposedly showing wildly varying results.
As pointed out by Techspot, the benchmarks number of the GTX 1650 appears in two resolution tables; 1440p (2560 x 1440) Lite Quality and Full HD (1920 x 1080) High Quality. At the preset 1440p Lite Quality, the GTX 1650 is shown to be unsurprisingly slower than the GTX 1660, but even more surprising is how the GPU seems to be playing catch up to NVIDIA’s last generation, Pascal-powered GTX 1050.
However, the GTX 1650 was tested at Full HD resolution with its settings on High Quality, its performance levels seemed to spike. Nearly going head to head with AMD’s Radeon RX 570 GPU, but still behind the 3GB variant of the GeForce GTX 1060.
So far, there’s still no official word from NVIDIA regarding its GeForce GTX 1650. However, rumours have suggested that it will be based on a TU116 GPU architecture similiar to the GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti. Specs-wise, it will reportedly feature 896 CUDA cores running on a base clock of 1485MHz, while its boost clock speeds will number somewhere in the 1600s.
Lastly, the card will feature 4GB GDDR5 graphics memory spread across a 128-bit memory bus and require just 75W of power. Meaning that, just like the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, the card would theoretically be able to run without the need of an additional PCIe power cable.
As always, NVIDIA has yet to make any official comment about its new GPU. That said, there are rumours going around suggesting that the company will be making an announcement on 22 April, so we may not have to wait that much longer.
