GeForce GTX 1650 cards from ASUS, MSI and ZOTAC pictured
NVIDIA’s much rumored entry-level GeForce GTX 16-series card, the GeForce GTX 1650 has leaked out nearly entirely. There is no GeForce GTX 1650 Founders Edition to see, but VideoCardz has gotten their hands on multiple leaks of the upcoming cards from NVIDIA’s AIB partners. You be the judge of which one you prefer more.
ASUS GeForce GTX 1650 designs
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1650 OC
Interestingly, ASUS skipped a ROG Strix variant of the GeForce GTX 1660, but decided to release one for the GeForce GTX 1650. While the GeForce GTX 1650 is expected to be a 75W part, ASUS decided to throw in an additional 6-pin power connector for the ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1650 OC. The cooler features two fans and is reminiscent of ASUS’ ROG Strix cooler for their lower end cards.
ASUS Dual/Phoenix GeForce GTX 1650
These two cards do not sport the additional 6-pin power connector, and comes with a choice of a dual-fan (ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1650) or single fan (ASUS Phoenix GeForce GTX 1650) cooler. These are very compact cards so you should check them out if you need one for your ITX build.
MSI GeForce GTX 1650 designs
MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming X
MSI has surprisingly given the GeForce GTX 1650 their full flagship treatment with a Gaming X variant. It is equipped with two Torx 3.0 fans and probably is the best looking GeForce GTX 1650 out there. This should also come with some RGB lighting, unlike most of the cards the competition is offering. Hinting at its premium “overclockable” intentions, there is also a 6-pin PCIe power connector here on the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming X.
MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Ventus XS
Similar to its higher end brethren, the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Ventus XS comes with two fans, but they are of the older Torx 2.0 variety. It does have a pretty aggressive outlook, especially with the angular shroud looking more premium than most of the GeForce GTX 1650s here today. There is no 6-pin power connector here.
MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Aero ITX
If you are looking for a card for your ITX build, the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Aero ITX will fit the bill. It’s small and measures only 178mm short. It also doesn’t need any additional PCIe power connectors, so there’s less cable management to worry about in your ITX setup.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650 Destroyer PA
This is ZOTAC’s highest end GeForce GTX 1650 card, with a 6-pin PCIe power connector. It is also the only card out of this lot with its boost clocks known. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650 Destroyer PA is going to feature a 1665 MHz boost clock and still fit into a 75W TDP.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650 OC
This is ZOTAC’s lower end design, with a single fan and no PCIe power connector. From the look of it, it should compete well against ASUS’ Phoenix GeForce GTX 1650 and MSI’s GeForce GTX 1650 Aero ITX.
