ASUS launches new GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 with 'space-grade lubricant'

ASUS launches new ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming, Phoenix series GeForce GTX 1650 D6 series with GDDR6

ASUS has just launched its new GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 graphics cards which if you couldn't already guess from the first sentence, have GDDR6 memory -- the original GeForce GTX 1650 launched with GDDR5 memory. And yes, I also had fun writing that headline... and ASUS really did use "space-grade lubricant".

The new GDDR6-powered GeForce GTX 1650 has memory bandwidth over 50% faster than the GDDR5-based GeForce GTX 1650. This means that the new GDDR6-powered GeForce GTX 1650 is much faster option for 1080p and 1440p gamers at a lower price point than the GeForce GTX 1660/GTX 1660 SUPER.

The original GeForce GTX 1650 with its GDDR5 memory was clocked at 8Gbps and offered 128GB/sec of memory bandwidth, but the new GDDR6 memory is clocked much higher at 12Gbps and offers 192GB/sec of memory bandwidth -- a win-win situation for gamers.

ASUS comes out swinging with its enthusiast-focused ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6, cooled by its in-house DirectCU II heat pipes and then 2 x Axial-tech fans. ASUS uses premium components on its ROG Strix series of graphics cards, with Auto-Extreme technology which is an automated process that boosts reliability.

ASUS TUF Gaming -- GTX 1650 GDDR6

Next up is the gamer-focused TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 which ASUS explains "up the ante for cooling, without sacrificing the durability that makes them TUF". ASUS still uses its Auto-Extreme Technology, as well as as backplate that protects the card and "space-grade lubricant" to seal it with IPX5 standards.

ASUS Phoenix -- GTX 1650 GDDR6

Last but not least is the Phoenix GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 which is made for small form factor gaming PCs, where limited space is a big issue. ASUS uses its Axial-tech fan designs and the same "space-grade lubricant" as its higher-end brethren.
