In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4GB.

The GTX 1650 has a 207 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X, but the R9 M395X has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the R9 M395X exhibits a 33 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1650. 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 207 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 6.7 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 R9 M395X, 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 R9 M395X 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 GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R9 M395X has 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the R9 M395X is massively better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1152 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M395X is 1259. The R9 M395X having 107 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 M395X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 M395X. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 M395X.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB requires 125 Watts. The R9 M395X requires 95 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 M395X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is smaller and doesn't drain the battery as fast compared to the mobile version, but it is weaker in performance. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU116, which has 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs and 16 SMs. The central unit runs at 930 MHz and goes up to 1125 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR5 memory through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1000MHz, or 8GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 30W the GTX 1650 Max-Q is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (CGN).

Architecture
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Amethyst XT which is a Third Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Tonga XT GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R9 380X.
Amethyst XT has 32 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 723MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 125W, it is suited for very large laptops.

Performance
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M295X 4GB.
Performance is Comparable to the desktop Radeon R9 280. Therefore, even GeForce GTX 970M is still faster.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
