Update (23 April 2019, 10:05 PM): We’ve updated the article with the specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 GPUs.
NVIDIA showed off several of its partner’s notebooks during a closed door event in Bangkok, fitted with the GPU brand’s Turing-powered GeForce GTX series GPUs. Specifically, the notebook GPUs we saw on display were the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650.
The notebook brands that we saw at the event included Lenovo’s Legion lineup, Gigabyte’s ultra-slim Aero notebook, as well as Acer’s Nitro series of gaming notebooks. Also, and as per an earlier report, it looks like MSI’s leaked GL series are also part of the list.
Unsurprisingly, all the notebooks were merely engineering samples. Of the notebooks up on display, both the Gigabyte Aero and Acer Nitro 5 were the only ones that were fitted with the GTX 1660 Ti. The other models – The Acer Nitro 7 and Lenovo Legion – featured the GTX 1650.
Specs-wise, the GTX 1660 Ti will feature 1536 CUDA cores; 6GB GDDR6 spread across a 192-bit memory interface; a base clock ranging between 1140MHz and 1455MHz, and a boost clock between 1335MHz and 1590MHz.
Notebooks running on a GTX 1650 will be able get a total of 1024 CUDA cores. Running on a memory configuration of 4GB GDDR5 and a 128-bit memory bus. The base and boost clock speed for the GPU varies as well; the base clock will range between 1020MHz and 1395MHz, while the boost clock ranges between 1245MHz and 1560MHz.
As an extra added bonus, we also discovered one of the notebooks – specifically the Gigabyte Aero unit – running on what was both clearly and obviously a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9750H CPU. It was the first time we had seen a unit running on Intel’s latest mobile CPU on a notebook, and engineering units nonetheless.
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 notebooks are available starting today. As for availability of the models, that will be left up to each of NVIDIA OEM partner.
