Another leak has appeared on the internet confirming the existence of Intel Core i7-9750H mobility and the Nvidia GTX 1650 mobile GPU. The leak also reveals Core i7-9750H to be around 28% faster than Intel Core i7-8750H, a significant leap in performance.
The leak came from a Twitter user revealing that the upcoming Intel Core i7-9750H will be coupled with Nvidia GTX 1650. With such a performance leap one must wonder if competition with AMD Ryzen had anything to do with it.
As for the Nvidia GTX 1650, the leak suggests the GPU features 4 GB of VRAM. Furthermore, the GPU is approximately 41% faster than GTX 150 and 24% faster than 1050 Ti. Again, a significant performance leap through the generation which can be attributed to the Turing architecture.
However, it’s unclear if this performance leap comes at the cost of increased power consumption. The leak also revealed the laptop which features both Intel Core i7-9750H and GTX 1650 mobility.
Reportedly, MSI GL63 is the upcoming laptop featuring 16 GB of RAM, Core i7-9750H mobility, GTX 1650 4GB, and a 512GB NVME PCI-E SSD. As for the display, the laptop comes with a 1920 x 1080 IPS panel.
The leak also revealed benchmarks for the Nvidia GTX 1650 for games like PUBG, League Of Legends, GTA V and more.
While it doesn’t mention which resolution these games were using, I assume it might be 1080p since the MSI GL63 features a 1080p display. The benchmarks reveal that 1650 is more than capable of running these games above 60 FPS.
It’s important to mention that this is just a rumor and until MSI officially confirms the existent of the laptop, take it with a grain of salt. But, if it is true then the leap in performance is significant which might help Intel to get back on top of the CPU market.
Speaking of Intel, the company has also revealed it’s 11th-Gen iGPU Architecture which also sees a significant leap in performance. According to Intel, the 11th-gen iGPU architecture has been designed from scratch and supports all major APIs including the DirectX, Vulkan, and OpenGL.
Not only that, next year Intel will also launch its discrete GPU. Intel has brought former AMD Radeon Tech Group leader, Raja Kadori, to work on it.
Not much is known about the upcoming GPU from Intel except for a small teaser revealed last year. The only thing confirmed is that the GPU will launch in 2020 and is a “fully compliant DX12 graphics processor”. It’s also unclear if Intel will be targeting its discrete GPU towards gamers or designers and artists.
As for Nvidia, the company introduced mining-specific GPUs when cryptocurrency mining was at its peak. These GPUs, however, aren’t designed to play video games but, modders have found a way around that.
To be exact, modders have found a way to use Nvidia P106 for gaming. It is a GTX 1060 equivalent but, it costs way less. Also, getting this GPU to run games requires some effort.
