    Default NVidia GTX 1650

    I received an email ad about this graphics card. GTX 1650 seems like an odd kind of name. I thought the GTX series was currently only up to the 1000’s, so the jump to 1600’s is strange. And I thought their latest cards were called RTX because of the ray tracing capability.

    How does GTX 1650 fit into the scheme of things and what good is it?

    The GTX 16xx series are based on the new RTX 20XX series less the Raytracing https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2019/0...orce-gtx-1650/

    Hmmm.....not a good card, and an incompehensible naming system.

    I see what they did there. Alan Turing would be rolling his eyes at the cheesiness of it.

    Not sure what Nvidia are up to, other than perhaps they are not selling many Raytracing cards due to only 2 games that support it and not very well at present or Raytracing on low end / entry level cards wouldn't work very well and is a pointless exercise.
