The RX 570 is a bit faster still but a 1650 super is pretty close and for the power envelope it operates in is pretty strong really. For people running very small and or very power limited systems it is the best option out there it seems. Still needs that PCIE power connector though.

Looks like the first 1650 low profile with the GDDR6 RAM: https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1656OC-4GL#kf
That ASUS 1650 card you got from Amazon Germany is now (mid May) hitting £205 on the AmazonUK site. Clearly these are still in v short supply, driving the cost up. The D6 version looks promising but I cannot find any available yet. The full (over) height cards with a short format are coming in for preorder but no sign of LP yet in the real world.
My use case doesn't need true SFF or low power but all the manufacturers out there seem to want to steal a few mm on the full height to fit a slightly bigger fan and I have zero clearance over the full size back plate so no plus height or top mounted power sockets. The Lenovo C30 workstation case was designed to take reference height pro GPUs and not a mm more anywhere. It also doesn't like any real estate theft at the bottom of the card if its over about 190mm long as this impinges on the chipset heatsink or cable trunking depending on which slot. Otherwise its totally full size card capable. I almost got excited by the R9 Nano, I have a soft spot for the underdog, but that is still a stack of paper to buy and getting a little long in the tooth. I'm reluctant to chop up the shrouding on a new card to regain the extra few mm hence the SFF path but I'm open to suggestions.

Hi everyone,

So, did someone acquire 1650 GDDR6, how is it? Would it be a worthy upgrade over 1050 Ti?
I put a Zotac 1650 DDR5 into a PC last year, and it's around 35% faster than a 1050 Ti at a similar power consumption. I should have the Zotac 1650 DDR6 version arriving by the end of this week and expect that to be another 5-10% faster than the DDR5 one.

If you have the extra 50W of power budget to go for the Geforce 1650 Super, that offers better bang for your buck. However, both PCs I've bought the vanilla 1650 for would have required the power supplies to be replaced which would have gone over budget.

I mean low-profile GPU, that's why 1650 D6 raises my interest.

let us know how it performs when it gets there :)
I can run some benchmarks here as well to compare my LP 1650 ddr5

Will do. I actually have a ITX (not LP) 1650 Gddr5, so will stick that in after and bench it too. See what the results are.

My poor Asus 1650 lp is crying out for ddr6 and I don't even know if it makes a difference.

My testing is in @owliwar :


Looks like the 5-10% improvement predicted by @AlexTSG is pretty much spot on. I make it around 7%. So not enough to warant and upgrade from a GDDR5 version but with the jump from 1050ti to 1650 I think the 40 ish % improvement make it worth an upgrade from a 1050ti.
