In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB.

The GeForce GTX 1080 has a 122 MHz higher core clock speed and 104 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the GeForce GTX 1080 providing 173.9 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 GeForce GTX 1080 has a 122 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the GeForce GTX 1080 providing 55.3 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 a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 1080, 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 1080.

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 1080 has 4096 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 GeForce GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1080 has 192.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1080 is massively better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1492 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1080 is 5989. The GeForce GTX 1080 having 4497 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1080. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1080. The GeForce GTX 1080 requires 105 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 1080 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 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 4GB features a single-fan cooling solution, mini-ITX form factor, and Expertool II compatability. This graphics card has poor 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 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, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 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 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
GeForce GTX 1080 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1733MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR5X, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1251MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate GeForce GTX 1080 can be over 25% Faster than GeForce GTX 980 Ti at 4K. In Fact, even the Dual Radeon R9 295X2 is easily topped.
At 1920x1080, the default rank for all GD Graphics Card, expect a performance boost ranging between 20% and 30%, over GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
As of May 2016, GeForce GTX 1080 is the fastest single Graphics Card available.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
