In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680.

The GTX 1650 has a 479 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 680, but the GeForce GTX 680 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the GeForce GTX 680 exhibits a 45.6 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 479 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 680 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 15.3 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 GeForce GTX 680, 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 GeForce GTX 680 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 GeForce GTX 680, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce GTX 680 has 64.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 680 is much better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1492 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 680 is 1625. The GeForce GTX 680 having 133 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 680 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 680. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 680 requires 195 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 680. The GeForce GTX 680 requires 120 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 680 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 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 2.75-slot graphics card which connects to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB features a dual-fan cooling solution, all-metal backplate, and EVGA Precision X1. This graphics card has above 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 TU117, 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, an additional 6-pin power connector is required. It is recommended you have a 300W or greater Power Supply Unit (PSU).

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 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 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 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 680 is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
The Kepler architecture allows more SPUs but the Fermi SPUs (used on the 400 & 500 Series) are clocked twice as fast as the Kepler architecture. Therefore, don't let the large amount of Pipelines fool you, as the 1536 Pipelines are equivalent to 768 Pipelines, of the Fermi architecture.
GeForce GTX 680 features a 1006Mhz core-clock that can automatically set itself to 1058Mhz using a technology similar to the one used on Intel GPUs. Another huge surprise is the TDP that went from 244 Watts, to just 195 Watts, as two SPUs of the Kepler architecture consume 10% less power. However, the amount was doubled and so the power save is not as high as it could have been.
GeForce GTX 680 was the fastest single GPU of the world until Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was released.
All games will run on the maximum settings smoothly.
