The Card

Graphics Card Front

Graphics Card Front Angled

Palit's card is dominated by the large passive heatsink. A backplate is not included, and not a requirement in this price segment, I'd say.

Graphics Card Dimensions

Dimensions of the card are 18.0 x 14.0 cm.

Graphics Card Height
Graphics Card Back Angled

Installation requires two slots in your system. The first photo is a little bit misleading as the heatsink ends flush with the PCIe slot cover, but is actually 2 mm below it.

Monitor Outputs, Display Connectors

Display connectivity options include two standard DisplayPort 1.4a and an HDMI 2.0b.

Graphics Card Power Plugs

The board does not use any additional power connector. This input configuration is specified for up to 75 watts of power draw.

Multi-GPU Area

GeForce GTX 1650 does not support SLI.

Disassembly

Graphics Card Cooler Back

Palit is using two heatpipes on their thermal solution, which wrap around the cooler. This heatsink is nearly identical to that of earlier KalmX cards. Thermal pads were added to provide cooling for the memory chips and VRM circuitry, though.
