Nvidia Allegedly Increases GeForce GTX 1650 Supply To Fight GPU Shortage

From Tom's Hardware: The latest rumor coming out of China is that Nvidia is supplying its partners with more Turing silicon to deliver more GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards to the market. The report specificially mentions mainland China, so it's uncertain if Nvidia is doing this on a global scale. However, we've reached out to the chipmaker for clarification.

Nvidia has already rekindled GeForce RTX 2060 and GTX 1050 Ti as a stopgap solution to the ongoing graphics card shortage, so it doesn't surprise us that the GeForce GTX 1650 would get the same treatment. The Turing-powered graphics card does rank third on Steam's Hardware & Software Survey for a reason.

According to the report, Nvidia was focusing more on its mobile graphics cards at the beginning of the year. As a result, there was a lack of supply for the desktop GeForce GTX 1650. However, the chipmaker will reportedly increase supply between the months of April and May.
