ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Graphics Cards in Pictures

As NVIDIA's AIB partners gear-up for launch of the $149 GTX 1650, more and more of their custom designs are popping up and about for interested buyers to start taking their picks. Remember that the GTX 1650 launch will be entirely partner-driven, with no reference design or NVIDIA-sold version of the graphics card.

GIGABYTE has seen the lid come off on no less than four graphics cards: three dual-fan configurations in the form of the GAMING OC (with LED lighting and the longest of the cards at 265 mm), WINDFORCE OC (sans RGB lighting and smaller at 229 mm), and the 1650 OC (1680 MHz Boost). An interesting proposition will be GIGABYTE's MINI ITX OC, which shrinks down dimensions considerably to just 152 mm length (sacrificing one of the two fans in the process).
MSI has seen its usual cadre of graphics cards, with the Gaming X OC and VENTUS XS OC and another ITX solution in the form of the GTX 1650 AERO ITX, which sports a DVI connector.
ASUS is represented by its ROG Strix OC (with LED lighting) and the GTX 1650 4GB DUAL, which employs the same dual-fan solution as found in the ROG Strix, albeit without the frill of LED. Another ASUS option, apparently, will take a single-fan route as well, though its dimensions aren't quite as constrained as the other smaller form factor graphics cards we've seen from the other manufacturers.

It's me or this gpu looks overpriced?

The top picture one from the right looks like the same size as a R9 Nano length wise. That's Interesting.

I understand it is a niche product for those who required no 8/6pin power cable to the graphics card, but $150 is just meh...

Hm, I don't see the price that bad. GTX 1050 Ti was and is still priced similarly, and still people bought those, IMO it was a slow and overpriced card already in its release.

However, in reality (i.e. the life that's happening outside of PC gaming forums) these $150 cards are a mainstream product, while expensive things like 1080 or Vega are a small niche. :)

It's only overpriced if you can buy a cheaper all-round alternative. Looking just at performance, there are some interesting AMD options.
Looking at the whole package, it's only competing with Pascal leftovers.
And of course another $50-60 gets you a 1660, which would make it the most effective way to spend money on a gaming PC.
But it's nothing new, right? 1060 was much better than 1050Ti based on price/performance.

Now, Nvidia selling a *50 card at $150 most likely means it's replacing the 1050Ti, not 1050. We'll see if this is confirmed by performance (ideally, 20-30% higher than 1050Ti).

It would be interesting to see what Nvidia planned for the low-power ~$100 price point (i.e. cards optimized for video output, not performance). We had 1030 and 1050.
1650 is way too powerful for low-profile passive cooling.
I smell a rebranded 1030/MX150... ;-)

Yes but that market already has a king : Rx 570 4GB.
It is currently at the price of unbeatable $120 - 140 sometimes $110.
The only thing the GTX 1650 beats the Rx 570 is the power consumption and maybe the newer video encoder, hence a niche product.

I think you might be smelling wrong, but we'll see.

Yes, well... you can believe in whatever you want. :-)

Nvidia most likely sells more 1050(Ti) than AMD sells GPUs in total (not counting the console and Apple stuff, obviously).
They simply need to make an attractive successor.

They're already rebranding MX150 as MX250, so why not?
Pascal is good enough for this scenario - no reason to change anything.
Of course they can keep selling the 1030 for another 5 years as well...

Heh, just like GeForce 210 and GT 610 for example. Well, a fine solution for OEM PCs which doesn't have an IGPU (Ryzen, Intel F-series CPUs) for basic tasks.

In fact my friend has an i3-8350K & GT 1030 and it's also fine for basic gaming.

It is hard to believe such a statement to be true.
May I ask you the source of this information ?

I don´t think Nvidia is aiming AMD at this point, they are just releasing natural Pascal successors. Perhaps Nvidia knows their cards sell a ton, despite what AMD is doing or pricing their cards!

I bet Steam Hardware Survey won't convince you... ;-)

I've looked at the AMD fans' favourite store: Mindfactory. I don't have statistics for periods, so we can only compare total numbers.
1050, 1050Ti - 54485 sold
all RX500, Vega and Radeon VII - 91990 sold

1050 has been around for longer (25%).
In other word, Mindfactory sells roughtly 2x more Radeon than 1050(Ti).

Keep in mind it's a store for DIY consumers, where high-end $500 CPUs outsell cheap mainstream models.

It's not a proof of what I've said, but maybe it at least makes it sound probable for you. :-)

I googled the Mindfactory.de,
I can't find the "Total number" you've mentioned but I found videos for weekly sales figures.
A quick peek at 2018 week 43 - week 46 sales figures suggested the exact opposite.
Market share of AMD on Mindfactory GPU sales were around 35% - 43%, let's say around 40%, so Nvidia gets 60%.
Inside that 60%, 1050 + Ti gets 10% - 14% , Let's say 12%.
So 1050+Ti get around 7% of the sales numbers overall.

7% is good from a market share stand point but it is nowhere comparable to AMD's total market share of 40%.

And yes I don't believe in steam survey, cause myself is a steam user for 10 years and I did not fill any of its survey for once.

You don't believe in Steam surveys, but you're extrapolating few weeks of sales. That's poor. ;-)

Mindfactory shows how many items were sold. No need to google anything.

And have you ever took part in a general election poll? :)

If it makes it any easier for you, I've never been asked by Steam as well (an I own a 1050, so it's one card they haven't counted ;-)).

Thanks for the info.
I went back and check those numbers.
I simply search "1050" (so Ti is included) then "rx 570" + "rx580", and counted the numbers sold.
Although I thought this is not so correct since only "In stock" and "Available" items are shown,
Something like reference rx 570 and rx 580 , and rx 470 and rx 480 which are huge during the mining incident weren't there,
but anyway I tried played by your rules.
But the numbers are exact opposite as well.

1050 + 1050Ti = 54485 sold
Rx570 + Rx580 = 58070 sold

Rx570+Rx580 sold more than 1050+Ti on Mindfactory.
