ZOTAC Rolls Out a Low-profile GeForce GTX 1650 Graphics Card

ZOTAC rolled out its first low-profile GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, close to a month after MSI released the very first card of its kind. ZOTAC's 16 cm-long card uses a 2-slot thick chunky aluminium heatsink to cool the GPU, memory, and a portion of the VRM. This heatsink is ventilated by two 40 mm fans. The card relies on the PCI-Express slot for all its power, and runs the GPU at NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1665 MHz boost, and 8 Gbps GDDR5 memory. The card uses 4 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide memory bus. Based on the 12 nm "TU117" silicon, the GTX 1650 packs 896 CUDA cores, 56 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Display outputs include one each of HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI-D. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Really wish they'd either cram all of the ports in one slot or make the DVI port removable like the VGA port on older low profile cards.

On another note, hope this helps bring down the price of low profile GTX 1050s. Even used ones are all over $100, which you can find used RX 480s for nowadays.

Yea, i really wish for a one slot version. I am still running a GTX 750 from MSI because it hat 2 seperate slots. I just can't fit in a dual slot card into my case :(

This is cool. Very nice upgrade for low-profile systems.
Sadly, 1650 is actually overpriced as hell.

You were saying?

And before anyone whips out the Radeon argument;

Low profile cards are purpose built and thus fetch a mild premium. So if you already have a decent performing system you're choices are get a new system with standard size cards, or keep your current system and spend a bit more for a GPU.

Thanks for all the links luxluthermiester. The RX 550 is even slower than the 750ti from what i have seen online. The Pro WX 4100 looks like the best option, but it is quite expensive

While true, it's performance will justify the price and not having to build a whole new system. You might also be able to find a Radeon Pro WX 3xxx series card used somewhere.
