Introduction

If you're in the market for a new mid-range GeForce graphics card and don't have or want to spend the money on a higher-end GeForce RTX 20 series graphics card -- then the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER should be on your radar.

NVIDIA updated its GeForce GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 SUPER series based on the Turing TU116 GPU, dropping RTX and DLSS technologies from the card. It has faster GDDR6 on-board, with the 4GB of GDDR6 on the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER GAMING X rocking out at 12Gbps -- up from the 8Gbps bandwidth on the original GeForce GTX 1650.

MSI has a bunch of different variants of custom GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics cards, where today we're starting off with the flagship GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER GAMING X.

The flagship GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER GAMING X has the fastest out of the box GPU clocks with up to 1755MHz boost clock, all cooled by the TWIN FROZR 7 cooler. There's 4GB of GDDR6 at 12Gbps on a 128-bit memory bus, while the regular GTX 1650 SUPER GAMING (no X) model has boost clocks of 1725MHz -- meaning there's a 30MHz benefit in buying the GAMING X model.

Interestingly, the two GAMING X models in MSI's 6-strong GeForce GTX 1650 family of graphics cards require just a single 6-pin PCIe power connector -- while all 4 of the other models do not. Yeah, they are powered solely by the PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and require no PCIe power connectors at all.

MSI has the following GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics cards:
