The MSI GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP and the OC version have a simple design that can fit inside small or slim systems. The graphics card measures 168 x 105 x 37mm with the normal bracket and 168 x 69 x 37mm with the low-profile bracket. It's equipped with a black shroud and a pair of small cooling fans for heat dissipation.
The graphics card support up to two displays simultaneously, with one HDMI 2.0b port and a dual-link DVI-D port, and a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels.
As far as specifications go, the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP adheres to Nvidia's specifications for the most part. The graphics card is based around the TU117 silicon, so you still have 896 CUDA cores and 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2,000 MHz (8,000 MHz effective) across a 128-bit memory interface. MSI's offering runs with the same 1,485 MHz base clock as well.
The key difference is the boost clocks. The MSI GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP comes with a 1,665 MHz boost clock, while the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP OC flaunts a 1,695 MHz boost clock. Both models are rated with a 75W TDP (thermal design power), so your PC build should be equipped with at least a 300W power supply.
As expected, MSI's GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP and GTX 1650 4GT LP OC are compatible with MSI's Afterburner software, which allows you to control, monitor and overclock your graphics card.
MSI hasn't disclosed the pricing or availability for these new graphics cards.

Probably the only model that makes sense, for a 1650.Reply
Agreed, thats the only model of 1650 that has a purpose.Reply
Now just waiting on pricing... I have two HTPCs that need low profile GPUs. It's good to see that manufacturers haven't completely abandoned this market segment. Low profile doesn't just mean single slot....Reply
This could turn any oem small form factor business PC into a serious entry level gaming machine.Reply
And so could the 1050ti or 1050.hftvhftv said:This could turn any oem small form factor business PC into a serious entry level gaming machine.
The 1650 is indeed faster, but nothing groundbreaking.
i have one being delivered tomorrow for my HP Elite 8200 SFF I7 2600 12GB ram 1Tb Hybrid 7.2k HDD.Reply
Its connected to a Samsung 55in 4K HDR TV so I had to upgrade from the 1050 2gb since Netflix needs at least 3GB of VRAM for 4K playback.
Though with recent changes I might drop Netflix and go with Disney streaming...
