NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 now has 10 Variants for you to Choose From

NVIDIA’s lower-end market segment is about to get a lot more confusing than it already is. Team Green is reportedly working on an “ultra” variant of the GTX 1650. Till now, there are already nine models based on the 1650 including the following:

  • GTX 1650
  • GTX 1650 GDDR6 Edition
  • GTX 1650 Super
  • GTX 1650 Mobile
  • GTX 1650 Mobile Refresh
  • GTX 1650 Max-Q
  • GTX 1650 Max-Q Refresh
  • GTX 1650 Ti Mobile
  • GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q

The GTX 1650 Ultra is based on the TU116 die like the GTX 1660, 1660 Super and the GTX 1660 Ti, while the original GTX 1650 variants use the Tu117 die. This can simply be seen as NVIDIA recycling redundant dies that can’t be used in the higher-end 1660 and 1660 Ti GPUs:

Luckily for the average consumer, the performance across the different variants of the 1650 should be roughly similar so we’re not looking at NVIDIA pulling another 970 fiasco. As for why NVIDIA is doing this, it’s not hard to understand. The GTX 1650 is easily one of the most popular graphics cards among PC gamers. Steam’s Hardware Surveys have repeatedly revealed this. As such, NVIDIA’s just trying to recycle as much left-over silicon into GTX 1650s.
