    Bangkok-based leaker APISAK (@TUM_APISAK) has posted a 3DMark screenshot revealing the alleged specs of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, which will reportedly launch alongside the GTX 1660 in spring. The Turing-based card is listed with a 1,395MHz base clock and 1,560MHz boost clock, and 4GB of presumed GDDR5 memory: “Past leaks peg the memory bus at 128-bit, and with a 2,000MHz effective clock speed, that would give the card 128GB/s of memory bandwidth.”

    …we can reasonably surmise that this will be yet another Turing card that lacks RT and Tensor cores, which are what give GeForce RTX series cards their real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) mojo. NVIDIA rightly recognized that gamers at large are waiting for both features to be more widely supported before investing in the necessary hardware. Hence why the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti exists—it lacks those features and is the least expensive Turing card on the market.

    Can't wait for the 2gb version with 64bit memory bus...

    4gb? I get that this is budget oriented but christ, you can't really use cuda on these things with such limited memory. CMON NV, daddy needs a cheap photogrammetry cuda card!

    64-bit with GDDR6 and passive cooling would be actually decent. (when cheap) But they would probably will not replace low end by 512 CUDA cores with 4 GB GDDR6 64-bit for 70$ with big heatsink 63$ for a "normal one slot cooling with fan". That would make too much sense
