NVIDIA Also Working on GTX 1650 Super with GDDR6 Memory

It looks like another GTX 1600 series card is going to get the “Super” treatment from NVIDIA. A GeForce GTX 1650 Super seems to be in the works and will be arriving November 22nd. It looks like this will be in response to AMD’s Radeon RX 5500, which AMD is comparing to the GTX 1650 in their marketing materials. While we don’t know the details on which GPU the GTX 1650 Super will use, we do know that NVIDIA will be upgrading the memory to 4GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit wide interface. This upgrade will effectively bring the memory bandwidth up from 128 GB/s to 192 GB/s.

In AMD’s marketing they are claiming a 37% performance boost over the current GTX 1650 with the RX 5500. We are not sure if the memory upgrade is enough to catch up to the RX 5500. The current TU117 that the GTX 1650 is based on only offers 128 more CUDA cores, so NVIDIA could use the larger TU116 silicon with 1/3rd of the memory interface disabled. I guess we’ll find out more next month.
