It looks like we’ll be seeing an army of GTX 1650 variants coming out in the market very soon as artworks of the retail units are leaked conveniently. It started with the ZOTAC’s variant of the GeForce GTX 1650 where it showed a lack of an auxiliary power connector. Therefore, it is safe to say this will be an entry level graphics card, the bottom of the pit for a gamer. It also indicates lower power draw down to 75 watts at max via the PCIe x16 3.0 slot.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650
According to the box art, the GeForce GTX 1650 is accompanied with a 4GB GDDR5 memory. It does have a DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b and a dual-link DVI-D output on the graphics card.
GAINWARD/ Palit/ Asus variants
This 1080p entry-level GeForce GTX graphics card is expected to use a 12nm TU117 core. No other information is available apart from the non-reference models. The other units are Gainward and Palit, whose brands are owned by Palit Microsystems. Both these graphics only have the PCIe and HDMI, which makes sense for the intended audience and paired monitors to have only these inputs. The ASUS and ZOTAC variants have all three of them.
Both the Palit StormX and Gainward PegasusOC variants have a base/ boost clock of 1665/ 1725 MHz.
