Gigabyte GTX 1650 Gaming OC Graphics Card Review
Peter Donnell / 8 months ago
Amazingly, the card only uses 141 Watts at full load. Keep in mind, unlike some GTX 1650’s this has a 6-pin header, so can use more than the 75 Watt limit of the PCIe slot. That’s very little power though, the efficiency is truly impressive.
At just 56c, it’s by far the coolest running card we’ve ever tested. It’s also one of the least powerful though, so I guess the two do go hand in hand. Seriously surprised it needs fans at all it’s that cool.
Predictably, the card is fairly quiet. A little louder than some of the Gigabyte cards with similar coolers, but certainly not noisy overall. If anything, you could dial back the profile as the card isn’t exactly screaming hot at load anyway.
