MSI May be Preparing an Nvidia 1650 (GDDR6) Revision
Mike Sanders / 1 year ago
With the Nvidia 1650 graphics card providing to be a popular choice for gamers on a budget, it’s hardly surprising that, to date, we’ve already seen a lot of different iterations of it including, most recently, the launch of the ‘Super‘ variants.
MSI to Revise their Nvidia 1650 Range
Now, we should clarify that this revision (if they do go ahead with it) will only apply to the ‘base’ 1650 graphics cards. Why? Well because the ‘Supers’ already have GDDR6 memory.
At the time of writing, therefore, the best guess is that this may form some kind of improved ‘hybrid’ design that, in theory, should be better than the original versions, but still not quite up to the level of the ‘Super’ 1650’s.
What Do We Think?
With the EEC registrations being made by MSI, we do have to advise some caution. Just because these graphics cards have been listed, it doesn’t necessarily confirm that they are definitely on the way.
It does, however, seem likely that MSI may be keen to phase out their GDDR5 platforms. It doesn’t, however, make sense that they would do this without making the newer revisions slightly faster.
We do, of course, await confirmation. For the time being, however, this is certainly interesting stuff. Particularly if you’re on the lookout for a new (and cheap(ish)) graphics card.
