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

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

GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 306 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB can run Days Gone at 1080p and saw it return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 98 FPS, Medium: 77 FPS, High: 52 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Far Cry 6 returns a weak 10 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Days Gone where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 75 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 28 FPS. We added Far Cry 6 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 8 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 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 MSI Aero ITX 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 616 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 25% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 4GB would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which meets 961 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 82% better performance.

GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Aero ITX 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 Aero ITX 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 Aero ITX 4GB features a dual-fan cooling system and mini-ITX design. This graphics card has below average overclocking potential. Its small size makes this graphics card 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 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 Aero ITX 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 Aero ITX 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.
