The first half of 2019 is getting a bit choppy for the hardware side of the major manufacturers. So much so that after the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 line, rumors have surfaced about the GTX 1650 models. VideoCardz recently shared some of the information discovered by VideoCardz regarding the upcoming graphics card in the Asus, Gigabyte and MSI brands.

Asus Dual GeForce GTX 1650
Like the Strix, the Dual comes with two fans and some white details to ensure a distinctive design. On the part of the connections is a big difference, because the Dual comes with a DVI-D double-link input, an HDMI 2.0 port, and another DisplayPort 1.4 output.
Asus Phoenix GeForce GTX 1650
The most basic model of the GTX 1650 is Phoenix, which has only one fan and this allows the price to be lower than the larger versions to ensure a cost-effective option for the line. The connections are the same as the Dual, so the only difference between the two at first glance is the size.
It’ll be a little more generous in the number of models available to its users who wish to upgrade to the PC, giving options of all sizes and powers within the 1650 line to accommodate the usability of each one to the product that is to enter in the market.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming OC
The Gaming OC option is the most suitable for the gamer public, bringing 2 Windforce 265 mm coolers and 100 mm fans, to ensure an even more differentiated look, it has RGB lighting. In terms of speed, it can reach a clock of 1,815 Mhz, so needing a power supply that can be plugged into the 6-pin connector. Already in the connection part, it will come equipped with three HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort 1.4 output.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Windforce OC
In terms of size, the Windforce OC is a bit smaller in the fan section, having 90 mm in each. The clock boost is a little less powerful than Gaming, reaching up to 1,785 Mhz, while the normal model comes with dual fans of 80 mm and clock of 1,710 Mhz, as well as two connections HDMI 2.0be and a DisplayPort 1.4 output.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Mini ITX OC
The Mini ITX model comes with only one heatsink, and the maximum clock speed is 1,680 Mhz. However, just like the normal version, it comes with two HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort 1.4 inputs. It is worth remembering that all Gigabyte models come with gold-plated inputs, which ensures a more stable connection and prevents oxidation.
The MSI brings the model Gaming X brings cooler Twin Frozr 7 and two fans Torx 3.0. Much like the top model of Gigabyte, comes with RGB lighting that can be controlled and customized. On the connections side, it comes with 6 power pins, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs.
In the Ventus XS option, you can find some similarities to the top model in relation to the number of fans. But in the connections part, it has a dual-link DVI-D port, DisplayPort 1.4 output, and HDMI 2.0b port. The Aero ITX, features a 178 mm fan and dual-link DVI-D connections, a DisplayPort 1.4 output, and HDMI 2.0b port. These two “lower” boards have the advantage of not needing the power source to deliver all the potential they have.
