Now that the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti is out we are now waiting for the Nvidia GTX 1660 and the GTX 1650. The GTX 1650 is going to be the entry-level graphics card that is going to replace the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti. There will be a total of 4 graphics cards in the budget to mid-range categories once these cards are out if you include the RTX 2060.
While there is little that we know about the specifications of the new cards, we can tell you that the Nvidia GTX 1660 is going to release on March 14th and will cost $229. The Nvidia GTX 1650, on the other hand, is going to release on April 30th and will cost around $179.
While there is little that we know about these graphics cards, it is safe to say that the Nvidia GTX 1660 will be able to beat the GTX 1060 by a fair margin and that the GTX 1650 will be able to beat the GTX 1050 by a fair margin as well.
What we will have to see is whether or not the margin is significant in order to decide whether or not these cards are worth the upgrade if you already have an entry-level or mid-range Pascal graphics card. There is no doubt that these will be great upgrade options for people that are using older graphics cards. Like the ones based on Maxwell for example.
AMD is trying to compete with these new cards by cutting the price of the AMD RX Vega 56 and the RX 500 series but things do not look good for AMD and it is expected that team Red is going to see a decline in market share in the GPU market by up to 25%. This is a prediction and only time will tell.
Let us know what you think about the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1660 and 1650 graphics cards and whether or not this is something that you are interested in getting.
