Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 311 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 32 FPS, Medium: 25 FPS, High: 17 FPS and Ultra: 12 FPS. We proceeded to look at Days Gone to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 39 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB at 1440p and researched how Far Cry 6 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 24 FPS, Medium: 19 FPS, High: 13 FPS and Ultra: 9 FPS. We then checked out Days Gone which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 78FPS, M: 61FPS, H: 41FPS, U: 29FPS. And another popular game was Forza Horizon 5 with predictions of L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB running at 1440p is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 22% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 633 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 78% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 967 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB features Windforce 2X cooling system, 100m blade fans, RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting, and a protective back plate. This graphics card has above 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 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 1815 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a 9% 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, this GPU requires at least a 300W Power Supply Unit (PSU). A single 6-pin power connector is required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Gigabyte Gaming 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.
