NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 still uses Volta multimedia engine

Word is going around that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 does not feature the Turing NVENC encoder. Instead, this Turing-based card has the less feature-rich multimedia engine of the Volta generation, and lower performance:
Turing's NVENC is known to have around 15 percent performance uplift over Volta's, which means the GTX 1650 will have worse game livestreaming performance than expected. The GTX 1650 has sufficient muscle for playing e-Sports titles such as PUBG at 1080p, and with an up-to-date accelerated encoder, would have pulled droves of more amateur streamers to the mainstream on Twitch and YouTube Gaming. Alas, the $220 GTX 1660 would be your ticket to that.
