In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB.

The GTX 650 has a 483 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce 920M 2GB. This results in the GTX 650 providing 15.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 650 has a 483 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 920M 2GB. This results in the GTX 650 providing 12.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 920M 2GB was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650, and so the GeForce 920M 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 650.

The GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce GTX 650 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 650 has 65.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920M 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 is much better than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce GTX 650 2GB have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 650 is 406 and by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 406. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 650 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 2GB requires 64 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GeForce 920M 2GB. The GTX 650 requires 39 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 650 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 920M 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208-N16V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially clocked at 575MHz and goes up to 954MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small laptops.

GeForce 920M 2GB is essentially a slightly faster GeForce GT 735M and offers more or less comparable performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 920M 2GB.
GeForce GTX 650 2GB is a fast-middle-class GPU part of the 600 Series released by NVIDIA in 2012.
This version features a frame buffer of 2GB. It's known that this GPU does not benefit in any way from a 2GB frame buffer and so this GPU's performance is on level with the 1GB variant. Check the page of the 1GB version for more information about but please note this GPU is just a fast GT 640, paired with GDDR5. Its performance is nothing like next in series - GeForce GTX 650 Ti and barely any fast than previous GTX 550 Ti.
