As we already know that, Graphics cards are currently in a shortage, and the world is facing an imminent shortage of cards. And it is being estimated that the crisis will be carried on to the mid of next year as well.
But, in recent news, NVIDIA is planning to fight back the crisis, by increasing the supply of one of its most popular graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1650. Recent reports indicate that NVIDIA might be increasing the supply of its older Turing-based mainstream cards to tackle shortages in the gaming segment.
The chip crisis has especially been hard for gamers. Due to low supply, the retailers have increased the prices of the graphics cards and as such, the few available cards have already been procured by hungry crypto-miners. In multiple reports, it has been stated that the shortages will persist till the end of 2021 which leaves many without a high-end and proper gaming graphics card for the entirety of 2021.
A few months back, NVIDIA decided to increase the supply of its Turing-based GeForce RTX 2060 & the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 series graphics cards to DIY and OEM segments to streamline things in the mainstream segment. This time the green teams are planning to introduce its Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650. NVIDIA plans to increase the supply of its card to meet the demand of several mainstream gamers.
According to sources, Nvidia is planning to increase the supply of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 this April and more Turing TU117 GPUs will enter the market by May 2021. The graphics features 896 CUDA cores, up to 1590 MHz clocks, and features 4 GB GDDR6 memory which operates at 12 Gbps across a 128-bit bus interface. The card features a TDP of 75W.
The GTX 1650 has also the second-highest graphics card share on the Steam hardware survey and is the 3rd most popular graphics card. The RTX 2060 and GTX 1050/1060 are also in the top five categories which makes sense for NVIDIA to increase their supply.
