There are a lot of rumors about the GeForce GTX 1650 from NVidia. They cover the release date, specifications, features, power requirements, and related news about the upcoming graphics card.

The people at Videocardz have tried their hands of what seems to be an official Zotac model. The box art states the GTX 1650 will have 4GB GDDR5 memory, and it’s pretty powerful.

What captures the interest is it seems that the GTX 1650 don’t have PCIe connectors so it might not need a power cable, which would be cozy. There are current cards where there’s a cutout, and the connector’s just tucked away, and there’s no cutout from the released photographs of GTX 1650.

People might not be surprised anymore if there’s no 8-pin or 6-pin PCIe connector on the GTX 1650.  The current gen GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti can get power via PCIe slot.

However, there are overclocked models, which still have a 6-pin connector, and tech heads expect that from 1650. It’s likely possible for the overclocked models to have more power, but when needing that power, it might be better to get the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1650 is suitable for the budget sector. Even if its specs aren’t completely revealed yet, there are indications of it having a TU116 GPU.

With all the information provided for the 1650, it seems it will be 25% faster compared to the GTX 1050 Ti. It’s also not expected to be quicker when compared to GTX 1060 3GB. If the reported leaks aren’t accurate, it’s still a good update for those who are in budget who want an Nvidia GPU.

There are rumors about the cost of the GTX 1650. Its price point might be around $179. The GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 were originally priced at $139 and $109. Nvidia is preparing to replace them with the GTX 1650.

There are two types of users who’ll benefit from the GTX 1650. First, are those who own a PC, but their system unit can’t support larger or faster graphics cards. The second group is the people who are searching for lower powered compact cards.

Rumors say the release date of cards might be sometime this month. Nvidia can delay the launching of the card, but it might not be sensible to do it because there’s stiff competition for the GTX 1650. It will compete with existing cards from Nvidia and AMD GPUs.
