NVIDIA really silently launched the GeForce GTX 1650 a few days ago, the first graphics card launch that I can remember (if not ever) that didn't see reviewers have pre-release drivers. This meant I had to wait until the announcement to get drivers, severely cutting down the time I had to prepare for this review. This isn't MSI's fault whatsoever and has no bearing on my final thoughts on the card, so this is more of an FYI if anything.
Anyway, the new GeForce GTX 1650 is here and the first card we have is the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 GAMING X 4G which is powered by the Turing TU117 GPU that has been crafted for the ultimate in performance, power, and cost. TU117 has all of the goodies that the Turing GPU architecture brings to the table, and is one of the best graphics cards on the market for 1080p gaming.
MSI as always has a great custom card on its hands, but we don't have a Founders Edition to compare it against. Let's dive right into the review, shall we?
