10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

How well will the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 308 games in todays list.

The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Forza Horizon 5 at 1080p of 18 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is FIFA 22 which we saw got good frame rates of 69 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Dying Light 2, which is predicted to get 12 FPS under tests.

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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB will run the upcoming game Forza Horizon 5 to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 36 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 22, L: 139FPS, M: 109FPS, H: 74FPS, U: 53FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, wih estimates revealing L: 23FPS, M: 18FPS, H: 12FPS, U: 9FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB running at 1440p 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 25% better and can meet 625 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which meets 965 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 82% better performance.

GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB features a dual-fan cooling solution, all-metal backplate, and EVGA Precision X1. This graphics card has below average 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 T117-400, 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 1665 MHz with the Boost Clock, the same speed as 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, 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 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 EVGA SC Ultra Black Gaming 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.
