NVIDIA has just announced its latest Turing-based GeForce GTX 16 series graphics card with the new GeForce GTX 1650, which is based on the TU117 GPU and starts from just $149. The new GTX 1650 joins the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 graphics cards in the non-RTX series Turing-based GeForce line up.

The new GeForce GTX 1650 launches today and while I do have a sample in-hand, for the first time that I can remember (if not, ever) the drivers were not pre-supplied to reviewers and go live today, April 23. The new TU117-based GeForce GTX 1650 offers everything from the Turing Shader innovations, including improved performance and power efficiency, and so much more.

NVIDIA is aiming the GeForce GTX 1650 at 1080p gamers with 2x the performance of the GTX 950 and 70% more performance than the GTX 1050 at 1920x1080. Best of all, the new GTX 1650 is able to do this at just 75W meaning it doesn't use an external PCIe power connector, which should really change things for small form factor gaming PCs.

As I said we have a GeForce GTX 1650 on hand and will download the drivers and have performance numbers and an official review up ASAP.
