NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Turing Specs Allegedly Leak: 1.4GHz Base Clock, 4GB GDDR5

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.
