How well can the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 311 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB can run Back 4 Blood at 1080p and predict it will return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 121 FPS, Medium: 96 FPS, High: 64 FPS and Ultra: 46 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Dying Light 2 is predicted to return a weak 14 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB will run the upcoming game Back 4 Blood to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 93 FPS, Medium: 73 FPS, High: 49 FPS and Ultra: 35 FPS. Another game researched was Dying Light 2 with predictions of L: 28FPS, M: 22FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 11FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Star Citizen, wih estimates revealing L: 86FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB, this is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB? Then we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 633 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 22% increased graphics performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 77% better performance and can run 967 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce GTX 1650 is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2019. The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix 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 Asus ROG Strix OC 4GB features a dual-fan Wing Blade cooling solution, IP5X dust resistance, Auto-Extreme technology, and GPU Tweak II compatability. This graphics card has great overclocking potential.
Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T107-400, 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 1860 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a large 12% 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 100W, an additional 6-pin power connector is required. It is recommended you have a 300W or greater Power Supply Unit (PSU).

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus ROG Strix 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 Asus ROG Strix 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.
