In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 SLI.

The GTX 1650 has a 810 MHz higher core clock speed but 56 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1650 manages to provide 7.6 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 1650 has a 810 MHz higher core clock speed but 32 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 460. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1650 manages to provide 4.3 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 GTX 1650 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the GTX 1650 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 460 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1650 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 460 has 102.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is massively better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 SLI has 672. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1559 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 907. The GTX 1650 having 652 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 460 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 28 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 SLI requires 380 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 460. The GTX 460 requires 305 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 460 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1650 is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2019. The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 550 and the RX 560, and replaces the outgoing GTX 1050.
This is a dual-slot graphics card which connects to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB features a dual-fan cooling system and mini-ITX design. This graphics card has below average overclocking potential. Its small size makes this graphics card an ideal choice for a small form factor (SFF) PC build.
Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing TU117-400, more specifically a TU117-300-A1, which has 14 SM activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1485 MHz and goes up to 1740 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a 5% overclock versus the reference model.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 2000 MHz (8GHz effective).

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, this graphics card requires a minimum 300W Power Supply Unit (PSU). No external power connectors are necessary as this graphics card is powered entirely through the PCIe 3.0 slot.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB will enable low to mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2019 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card has slightly faster performance than the GTX 1050 Ti.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX OC 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 19200x1080 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-8400 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
GeForce GTX 460 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 460 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 460.
The optimal performance it delivers is slightly better than a single GeForce GTX 480.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
