[Guru3d] Zotac GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming Review

https://www.guru3d.com/articles-page...-review,1.html

$50 overpriced but its performance per watt is impressive.

Quote:
The GeForce GTX 1650 will bear a minimum price tag of roughly US$ 179. These cards are fitted with 4GB GDDR5 memory based upon a 128-bit memory bus. While the clock frequencies of the GPU base and boost frequencies will vary a bit per board partner, the reference base clock speed is close to 1400 MHz. When the first rumors on the GeForce GTX (yes, with a G) surfaced, speculation was everywhere and we had doubts NVIDIA would actually release a new GTX while moving forward towards it's RTX branding. NVIDIA is now injecting Turing based GPUs into the mainstream called TU116 and this new GU117. To make it more affordable NVIDIA stripped away the RTX and DLSS features, that means there are no RT and Tensor cores in these products. It's a fall back towards the original shader design model.

So to quickly recap; the 1650/1660 series is making use of the Turing architecture but will not have Raytracing and Tensor cores, this is why NVIDIA dropped the RTX suffix back to GTX. The GeForce GTX 1650 cards are to occupy a 149 to 179 USD price domain slash pricing level which coincidentally also is occupied by the AMD Polaris 20-based Radeon RX 570 series.

At that price point the RX 570 is a no brainer.

Sure, along with a PSU upgrade. If you already have the power for the RX 570 yes it is a no brainers.

Being this card the efficiency wonder it is I really doubt you would upgrade to this card coming from one with better power consumption unless it is a GTX 1050 / Ti.

But yep, you can buy a RX 570 and a PSU upgrade for the same money and still have a faster card and a PSU replacement for the clunker you had.

Why is this even a topic? How much power does a system with RX 570 draw? <300W? Who build a PC with PSU less than 400W these days.

Because this card isn't aimed at system builders. These are perfect drop in cards for consumer desktops along with VNC servers.

It is a topic and what we will be bickering back and forth for the next few pages because a certain someone will tell you a niche inside a niche inside a niche market with a niche usage inside a niche usage maybe probably would pick it over the cheaper and more performing card.

Every time someone says that the RX 570 is the best pick you can be sure that someone will go and repeat himself ad nauseam.

Rx570 still a better buy in my eyes. Psu aside who buying less then 400w in a build anyways.

Besides some niche cases for this card.


Leaves some room for navi to come in and hit nvidia below the belt in this 2060, gtx1660, gtx1650 spot as well.

Amd needs to get the ball rolling sooner then later.
