In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Phoenix 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition.

The GTX 1650 has a 439 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 660, but the GTX 660 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the GTX 660 exhibits a 0.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1650. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1650 has a 439 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 660. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 22.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1650 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 660, and so the GTX 1650 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 660 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1650 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 660, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 660 has 30.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 is noticeably better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Phoenix 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1519 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 is 1067. The GTX 1650 having 452 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1650 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 660.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 660. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 660.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Phoenix 4GB requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1650 is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2019. The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Phoenix 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 Asus Phoenix 4GB features a single-fan cooling solution, IP5X dust resistance, Auto-Extreme technology, and GPU Tweak II compatability. Its small size makes it a good choice for a small form factor (SFF) PC build. This graphics card has below average 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 T107-400, 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 1695 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a small 2% 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, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required. It is recommended you have a 300W or greater Power Supply Unit (PSU).

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Phoenix 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 Asus Phoenix 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.
GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 660.
The new features include a new cooling system and in terms of overclocking, the base-clock was increased from 980MHz to 1046MHz and the boost clock can now reach 1111MHz, instead of 1033MHz. The memory clock was raised to 1652MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5.5% performance when compared to the reference card.
