    As Hardware Unboxed says, in place upgrades for a machine that has no PCIe power connectors for older machines, really?

    There's also been some videos (bitwit) where he showed the target older machines are bottlenecking the 1650 hard.

    So whatever bud Nvidia has been smoking to push that ethos, I want some.

    Three reviews in row of the most pointless/unwanted GPU on the market?!?
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    Couldn't agree more.

    Not necessarily, you have to remember that they are also an option for people with non standard PSU computers. I got a couple of HP EliteDesk 800 G2 towers from work they were disposing of for my kids, they have a non standard motherboard psu connection so upgrading the PSU is a pain, involving making adaptors. The PSU has no PCIe connectors however it is 300W Platinum plus.

    They both have i5-6600 CPUs and ddr4 ram so no real bottlenecking.

    If I want them to be able to play games at 1080 with a reasonable frame rate this, the 1050 ti, or a rx460 are the only real options.

    I think there is enough of a boost in frame rate to make this a viable choice.

    Obviously you wouldn't put one in any system where you have the option of buying a new PSU and a lower priced but faster card, but it has a niche.

    Price just looks too high to me, like all Nvidia cards actually.

    combine one of the worst graphics card manufacturers (imho) and one of the most pointless graphic card releases, a concoction hardly made in heaven
