Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1650 GPUs Coming to Dozens of Laptops

From PC Mag: Nvidia is helping PC makers unleash a wave of budget gaming laptops that will run new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 graphics chips, which should offer more than double the graphics performance of the company's GeForce GTX 9-series cards.

Expect the new GPUs to arrive in more than 80 different laptop models over the coming months. GeForce GTX 1650-powered notebooks will start at $799, while GTX 1660 Ti-powered models will go for $999 and up.

For builders and upgraders of desktop PCs, the company is also releasing a desktop version of the GeForce GTX 1650 card for $149. This is a new low-end card using the same "Turing" architecture employed in late-model Nvidia gaming cards such as the GeForce GTX 1660 and GeForce RTX 2060, but on a different GPU core. "We are trying to hit a much more affordable price point with the 16-series GPUs," Mark Aevermann, an Nvidia product manager, told journalists in a conference call.

The company is playing up the new mobile GeForce GTX 16-series GPUs for gamers on laptops running the older GeForce GTX 960M and GTX 950M, which launched in 2015. According to Nvidia, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will offer up to four times the graphics performance of the GeForce GTX 960M, and 1.5 times the performance of a last-generation ("Pascal") GeForce GTX 1060. As a result, you should be able to run popular PC titles, including Fortnite and Apex Legends, in excess of 100 frames per seconds (fps).
