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

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

GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 309 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 13 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB, Back 4 Blood getting 45 FPS and Far Cry 6 getting 11 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI to predict how the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 25 FPS, Medium: 20 FPS, High: 13 FPS and Ultra: 10 FPS. Next we looked at Back 4 Blood which was playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Far Cry 6 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 8. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB, this is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 24% better performance and can run 625 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which is 80% more powerful and can run 965 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB features a single-fan cooling solution, mini-ITX form factor, and Expertool II compatability. This graphics card has below average overclocking potential. Its small size means this graphics card is an ideal choice for a small-form-factor (SFF) PC build.
Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing TU117-400, 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 1725 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a 4% 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, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus 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.
