10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX 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 Mini ITX OC 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 308 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Forza Horizon 5 at 1080p of 19 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Resident Evil 8 which we saw got weak frame rates of 19 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 10 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Forza Horizon 5 to predict how the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Next we looked at Resident Evil 8 which was weak with a 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Far Cry 6 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 8. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB in your PC? This GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 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 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 4GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 625 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 25% better performance as well. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 81% better and can run 965 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX 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 Mini ITX 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 Mini ITX OC 4GB features a single 80mm blade fan cooling solution and 170mm compact card size. This graphics card has below average overclocking potential. Its mini-ITX compact card size makes this 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 1680 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a small 1% 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). This graphics card is powered entirely by the PCIe 3.0 slot and no dedicated power connector is required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Gigabyte Mini ITX 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 Mini ITX 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.
