In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition.

The GTX 1650 has a 300 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 680, but the GTX 680 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the GTX 680 exhibits a 63.1 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 300 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 680 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 9.6 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 680, 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 680 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 Ultra and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1650 has 64 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 680, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is much better than the GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1425 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 680 is 1806. The GTX 680 having 381 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 1650 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 680. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra requires 90 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition requires 195 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 680. The GTX 680 requires 105 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 680 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 Ultra is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2020. The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra 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 daul-slot graphics card which connects to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T106, more specifically a TU106-125, which has 14 SM activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1590 MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR6, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 2000 MHz (8GHz effective).

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 90W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra will enable low to mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2020 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 Ultra is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1920x1080 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 680 Galaxy Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 680. See the standard version for more information about it.
Compared to the standard version, GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition features an increased core-clock that went from 1006MHz to 1110MHz and the turbo boost from 1100MHz to 1176MHz. The amount of memory was also increased from 2GB to 4GB, proving useful if gaming at high resolutions and using many image improving techniques, though we consider this excessive.
Expect a 9% performance boost when compared to the standard card.
