NVIDIA has officially launched the GeForce GTX 1650 today, its latest graphics card targeted for entry-level 1080p gaming. There will be no Founders Edition for the GTX 1650, but you can expect for different design from the board partners at a starting price of $149.
We’ve seen leaked specifications and rumors on an upcoming GTX 1650 Ti that have been circulating over the internet since a week ago, and here are the official specifications for us to compare with the ones from the previous leaks.

NVIDIA did mention that they are rounding up the current generation with the GTX 1650 in the recent press update, which means that we might not be seeing the rumored GTX 1650 Ti anytime soon. Another thing to add here is that even though the GTX 1650 falls under the GTX 16 series lineup, NVIDIA has yet to confirm DXR support on this model.
