How well can the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC 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 XC Gaming 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 308 games in the list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB shows us that Forza Horizon 5 is getting a weak result of 21 FPS, and then we are seeing FIFA 22 returning a good 71 FPS while another game on our list is the Battlefield 2042 which is getting 0 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB by playing FIFA 22 which yielded a reasonable performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 143FPS, M: 113FPS, H: 76FPS, U: 54FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Battlefield 2042 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Forza Horizon 5 which gets weak results with a 16FPS on Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB in your PC? This GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 22% better and can run 616 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 77% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 961 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC 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 XC 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 2.75-slot graphics card which connects to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Gaming 4GB features a single-fan cooling solution, all-metal backplate, and EVGA Precision X1. This graphics card has 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 1860 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a generous 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 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 XC 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 XC 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.
