MSI Updates GTX 1650 Graphics Cards with GDDR6 VRAM
Details of new product SKUs have been submitted to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) which shows that MSI is updating their GTX 1650 series.
The details of the EEC database submission were first spotted by the website VideoCardz and show that the Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics cards will soon feature GDDR6 RAM.
Up until recently, all MSI GTX 1650 non-super cards have been built with GDDR5 memory chips. Only the GTX 1650 Super cards have been built with the faster GDDR6 RAM. However, according to this EEC submission, that’s about to change pretty soon.
Will This Change Be Implemented Across All Nvidia 1650 Cards?
As far as we know this isn’t a change that’s been announced by Nvidia or other manufacturers and only applies to MSI cards.
It’s always possible that Nvidia is planning to phase out graphics cards with GDDR5 memory altogether to improve the RAM of the whole range. However, we don’t have any confirmation of that as of yet. If we hear more on this, we will be sure to let you know.
MSI’s Range Of GTX 1650 Cards With GDDR6 Memory
MSI has also included a list of the new GDDR6 graphics cards in the GTX 1650 range, which you can see below:
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 GAMING X
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 GAMING
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 VENTUS XS OC
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 VENTUS XS
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 AERO ITX OC
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6 AERO ITX
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6T LP OC
- MSI GeForce GTX 1650 D6T LP
Another part of the EEC submission was the MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT which was included due to the new vBIOS update that AMD introduced before the release of those cards. This new update is said to unlock extra performance for the graphics cards.
