How well can the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 309.

The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB graphics card is returning a playable performance on Days Gone at 1080p of 37 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 18 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which is predicted to get 10 FPS under tests.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Days Gone and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 75 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 28 FPS. We then checked the performance on Resident Evil 8 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 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 MSI Ventus XS 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 25% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 633 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 82% better and can meet 967 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 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 MSI Ventus XS 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 Ventus XS 4GB features a dual-fan thermal design. This graphics card has poor 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 1665 MHz with the Boost Clock, the same speed as 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 graphics card requires a minimum 300W Power Supply Unit (PSU). No external power connectors are necessary as this graphics card is powered entirely through the PCIe 3.0 slot.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Ventus XS 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 MSI Ventus XS 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.
