In what may be one of the smallest cards we’ve ever had in for review, the Palit GTX 1650 Storm X OC still promises quite a lot. It’s one of the few GTX 1650 cards that doesn’t use an additional GPU power cable. It only draws power from the motherboard, which may limit the performance, and more so, the overclocking. However, for those needing a cheap and ultra-compact gaming card, it has certainly got some appeal.

We’ve already tested quite a few of the new 160xx series cards. They’ve certainly proved to be a great card for both 1080p and 1440p gaming.
