In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB.

The Vega Frontier has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed and 200 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 326.4 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 Vega Frontier has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 54.9 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 Vega Frontier, 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 Vega Frontier.

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 Vega Frontier has 12288 MB more video memory than the GTX 1650, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Vega Frontier also has superior memory performance overall.

The Vega Frontier has 127.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the Vega Frontier is massively better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1546 and the actual shader performance of the Vega Frontier is 4260. The Vega Frontier having 2714 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Vega Frontier delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

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

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB requires 275 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Vega Frontier. The Vega Frontier requires 200 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Vega Frontier 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 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 Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is a Prosumer Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. Vega 10 XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1600MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The Vega 10 GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 16GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is equal to the GeForce GTX 1080 in terms of gaming performance. However, it is primarily designed as a workstation graphics card and is not great value for money as a gaming GPU.
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is available in two versions - air cooled and the more expensive water-cooled. Specs are otherwise identical. System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega Nova 16GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
