In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The GTX 1650 has a 131 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 29 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 131 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 1050 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 4.2 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 a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 1050, and so the GTX 1650 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 1050.

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 1050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1650 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1650 has 16 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is slightly better than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1546 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The GTX 1650 having 289 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1650 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1050. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB features a single-fan cooling solution, mini-ITX form factor, and Expertool II compatability. This graphics card has below average overclocking potential. Its small size means this graphics card is 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, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 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 Gainward Pegasus 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.
Overview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 is Nvidia's lower end graphics card, designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960.

Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and Introduces support for Second Gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GP107-400 which has 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz which is outstanding.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GTX 1050 will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 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 will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
