Nvidia GTX 1650 Supply

Since the end of last year, gaming graphics cards have faced a huge shortage of supply. This has primarily been due to the arrival of a new generation of graphics cards and also the rise of crypto mining. NVIDIA is planning to fight this shortage of graphics cards around the globe by increasing the supply of GTX 1650, which is one of its most popular, entry-level GPUs.

According to a report by Channel gate, NVIDIA might be increasing the supply of its older Turing-based mainstream card to tackle shortages in the gaming segment. According to the rumor, NVIDIA is planning to increase the supply of one of its most popular graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1650 to fight back the gaming GPU shortages.

Both NVIDIA and AMD have failed to provide adequate supplies for its new generation of graphics cards. According to multiple reports, the shortage of gaming graphics cards will persist till the end of 2021 which leaves many without a high-end and proper gaming graphics card for the entirety of 2021.

NVIDIA has taken multiple steps to tackle the gaming graphic card shortage during this uncertain time. 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.

And increasing the production of the NVIDIA GTX 1650 is the latest step from the company. The source reports that the supply of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is expected to increase this April and more Turing TU117 GPUs will enter the market by May 2021.

The GeForce GTX 1650 features 896 CUDA cores and a boost clock of up to 1590 MHz. It features 4 GB GDDR6 memory which operates at 12 Gbps across a 128-bit bus interface. The card features a TDP of just 75W which is great for low profile builds. Overall, the GeForce GTX 1650 is not a very powerful GPU however it might help Nvidia to tackle the ongoing GPU shortage in the market.

When GTX 1650 was first released, it was priced at just $149 USD. We will have to wait and see how better the stock situation gets once NVIDIA bumps up the production of the GTX 1650.
