GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
The GeForce GTX 1650 is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2019. The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 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 MSI Gaming X 4GB features a dual-fan Torx 3.0 cooling solution and, Zero Frozr design, and Mystic Light functionality. This graphics card has above average overclocking potential.
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.
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 1860 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a large 12% overclock versus the reference model.
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).
With a rated board TDP of 85W, this graphics card requires a minimum 300W Power Supply Unit (PSU). A single 6-pin power connector is required.
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 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.
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 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.
