We put NVIDIA's new GTX 1650 GDDR6 to the test. The upgraded memory offers a +50% bandwidth increase, which definitely helps make up some ground against the GTX 1650 Super and RX 5500 XT. Since Gigabyte installed 14 Gbps chips and clocked them lower, memory OC works really well, too.

As you mention in your summary, this card is 100% pointless when you can get a 1650 Super (which is 25% faster) for $159.99.

@W1zzard : How come that RX5600XT isn't included in the performance, efficiency and power consumption lists? Since there isn't any factory reference model, pick one of the best quality ones (Pulse maybe?) and add that.

I lean towards picking the XFX THICC II as that's closer to the middle of what's available

I'm surprised at the noise of the cooler. It's quieter than I thought after reading this review https://www.newegg.com/Product/SingleProductReview?ReviewID=10352331

That's a 1650 Super with 100W of power usage, no wonder it's loud when fan has to spin faster to keep temps in check.

Fastest card without 6pin power connector will always have it's audience i guess.

Correct, it's still the same GTX 1650 TU117 GPU

That is why I bought it. Recently I picked up a Dell OptiPlex 7020 MT with i5-4590 for $133 shipped + tax. The PSU is proprietary with only 290 watts, but still supplies 75 watts to the PCIe-3 slot. I found that this card at $159 was the best I could do. I am very pleased with it. Since service tag was regesistered with Microsoft by Dell, I was able to installed Win 10 Pro 2004 free without having to authenticate.
