About the GIGABYTE GTX 1650 OC 4GB…

Typical with NVIDIA, the base level models do not have any reference edition designs. Every AIC have its own variants with the combination of stock or factory overclocked SKUs.

The Gigabyte GTX 1650 OC 4GB is one of GTX 1650 variants it offers. While the base clock is the same as the reference spec, the boost clock has a minuscule 45 MHz bump. As expected, this is an entry-level graphics card, with a larger fan shroud with aluminum heatsink within the GPU.

Entry-level card. Entry-level contents

In all honesty, there’s really nothing to include with entry-level graphics cards. It would be nice if it included an HDMI-to-dual-link DVI-D adapter since the card supports it and the entry-level users typically have 60-70Hz 1080p monitors with HDMI and DVI inputs.

External Impressions

The GTX 1650 OC 4G is 5.66 inches long, 3.54 inch in width. The dual fan shroud overlaps the PCB, at 7.48″ length and a bit under 3.93 inches.

The Gigabyte GTX 1650 OC 4GB is a dual-slot card, as mentioned in its reference specification reference. Despite the DVI-D support, there is no dual-link DVI-D port in this. If you look at its intended competition,Gigabyte Radeon RX 570 OC 4GB GDDR5, it has the output. Entry-level monitors usually have a single DVI-D and a single HDMI port. While this isn’t really a big deal, some of its variants from ZOTAC and ASUS provides them.

Although these 75mm fans are marketed as ‘Windforce’ fans, this is the GTX 1650 4G OC, while its slightly upper brother is its Windforce OC 4G with 1785 boost clock speed and takes power from a 6-pin PCIe connector. Gigabyte’s highest spec is its Gaming OC with the boost clock speed at 1815MHz. This is the only variant with the backplate and two copper heatpipes.

About factory OC spec listings…

Usually, OC labeled graphics cards have both stock and boost speed factory overclocked. That’s not the case with this GPU. And for that reason (probably), the base clock wasn’t mentioned in its specs. Strange.

Internal Impressions

All you have to do is pop out four spring-loaded screws and you’re good to go! Only a single connector is on the PCB.

This card’s core is labelled as TU117-300-A1. It is accompanied with the Micron 8NB77-D9VVR 4x 1GB GDDR5 chips.

GPU Cooler Design

After removing four screws on the sides, you can dismantle the shroud from the heatsink.

This is a single aluminum block with no heatspreaders. The upper GTX 1650 units with a higher boost clock speed and a 6-pin aux connector have aluminum sinks with two copper heatpipes. This GPU cooler has two POWERLOGIC POWERLOGIC PLD08010S12H 75mm ball-bearing fans in it.
