Nvidia appears to have released a new GTX 1650 graphics card without really telling anyone, although it's probably not one on many wishlists. The new variant of the GeForce GTX 1650 uses GDDR6 memory as opposed to the original GDDR5 spin. This new variant has started appearing in various places, including an early review that has popped up on Expreview (via Videocardz).

We reached out to Nvidia to give us an idea as to why this card has suddenly popped into existence, and the response was suitably succinct.


"The industry is running out of GDDR5," an Nvidia rep explained to us, "so we’ve transitioned the product to GDDR6."
