How well can the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

How well will the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q run 2023 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 266 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Forza Horizon 5 getting 15 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q, Dying Light 2 getting 8 FPS and Resident Evil 8 getting 15 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Forza Horizon 5 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 30 FPS, Medium: 24 FPS, High: 16 FPS and Ultra: 11 FPS. We added Dying Light 2 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 6 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 11 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q 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 Ti Max-Q? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q, which has 71% better performance and can run 805 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is smaller and doesn't drain the battery as fast compared to the mobile version, but it is weaker in performance.
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing.

It equips a Turing GPU codenamed N18P-G62, which has 1024 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs, 32 ROPs and 16 SMs. The central unit runs at 1485 MHz and goes up to 1665 MHz in Boost mode.

The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 2000MHz, or 8GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, this graphics card does not require a dedicated power connector.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q will offer a performance around 10% slower than the desktop GTX 1650 Ti. This will enable medium to high graphics performance on modern AAA 2020 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on High graphics settings at 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 1060 Mobile.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, so our recommendation would be to use 1920x1080 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a modern low-end processor such as the i5-8300 and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
