MSI launches two low-profile GTX 1650 graphics cards

MSI has officially released two new GPUs into their Geforce GTX 1650 lineup, adding some low-profile graphics performance into the mix with both reference speed and overclocked models.  

With these graphics cards, MSI has found the best use case for Nvidia’s GTX 1650 by packing its low-power performance into a form factor that AMD’s competing RX 570 cannot accommodate, the half-height PCIe form factor. This enabled this graphics card to fit into a wide range of OEM PCs, allowing them to be upgraded into capable gaming machines. The GTX 1650’s low TDP also helps MSI achieve this goal. 

MSI’s low-profile (LP) GTX 1650 offerings come with Nvidia’s reference GTX 1650 clock speeds or a 30MHz factory overclock. Both versions feature DVI-D, and HDMI 2.0b, lacking DisplayPort connectivity. The graphics card can support full-height and half-height PCIe systems with the graphics card’s included brackets.
