In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 550 4GB.

The GTX 1650 has a 395 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 550. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 22.2 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 395 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 550. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 30.1 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 RX 550, 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 RX 550.

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 GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB and the Radeon RX 550 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1650 has 128.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 550, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is massively better than the RX 550.

Both the GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB and the Radeon RX 550 4GB have 896 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 1650 is 1546 and by the RX 550 is 1075. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 1650 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 550. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 550.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 550 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 550. 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
Radeon RX 550 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 550 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 550 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
