In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 192 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1650, but the GTX 1650 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the GTX 1650 exhibits a 32.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 192 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1650, but the GTX 1650 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the GTX 1650 exhibits a 20.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. 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 GeForce 940MX 2GB, 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 GeForce 940MX 2GB when running the latest games.

The GTX 1650 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1650 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1650 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is noticeably better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1152 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644. The GTX 1650 having 508 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1650 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts. The GTX 1650 requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce 940MX 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1650 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

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
