Asus launches gtx 1650 gpu gddr6

ASUS recently announced that Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards with new and improved memory will be used in ROG Strix, TUF Gaming and Phoenix series.

MSI and Gigabyte have also issued similar announcements in recent months. Before

, GeForce GTX 1650 cards had GDDR5 memory. Upgrading to GDDR6 means that the bandwidth will increase by about 50%. The GDDR5 version of the

GeForce GTX 1650 is clocked at 8 Gbps and provides 128 Gbps of bandwidth. On the other hand, the new GDDR6 version of the same card runs at 12 Gbps and provides a significantly better bandwidth of 192 Gbps.

This new and improved memory will be available in the next few rows with some cooling and design tweaks.

With ROG Strix graphics, gamers can change settings through GPU Tweak software to fully control performance. Previously known heating problems have also been solved by using DirectCU II heating tubes, which transfer heat to the fin array. It is then cooled by 2 Axial Tech fans.

On TUF Gaming graphics cards, these graphics cards are built with AutoExtreme technology, which can prevent the PCB from bending through a rigid backplate, thus improving durability. This series even uses something called "space-grade lubricant" to seal it, reaching IPX5 standards.

These cards are more suitable for small gaming PCs, and have a compact design that doubles their service life. Due to the small space, Phoenix cards can still stay cool with the help of axial fans and use the same space-grade lubricants used in TUF game cards.

Since Phoenix cards generally perform well in the budget GPU category, increasing bandwidth will only improve the card’s price/performance ratio.

This is good news for Asus. Its graphics card is usually the highest performance card we see in the "best" graphics card guide. You can find our best GTX 1650 graphics card review here.
