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

This GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac 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 Zotac 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 Zotac 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. This graphics hardware can run 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

A GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB card at 1080p is seeing a reasonable frame rate when running Back 4 Blood on Ultra - 45 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Battlefield 2042 which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Far Cry 6 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 11 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Back 4 Blood which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 91 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 22FPS, M: 17FPS, H: 12FPS, U: 8FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac Gaming OC 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 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 24% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 625 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 965 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 80% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 1650 Zotac 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 Zotac 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 Zotac Gaming OC 4GB features a single-fan 90mm cooling system, sunflower heatsink, 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 1725 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a 4% 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 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 Zotac 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 Zotac 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.
