In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB.

The GeForce GTX 1660 has a 45 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the GeForce GTX 1660 providing 51.4 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 GeForce GTX 1660 has a 45 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the GeForce GTX 1660 providing 25.9 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 less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1660, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 GeForce GTX 1660 has 2048 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 1660 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1660 has 64 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1660 is much better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1660 has 1408. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1492 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1660 is 2513. The GeForce GTX 1660 having 1021 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1660 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Gainward Pegasus 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1660 requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1660. The GeForce GTX 1660 requires 45 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 1660 may have a slight 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
The GeForce GTX 1660 is an entry to mid-level Nvidia graphics card which launched on March 14th, 2019. The GeForce GTX 1660 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 570 and the RX 580, and replaces the outgoing GTX 1060.

Architecture
The Turing GPU architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Turing TU116, more specifically the TU166-300-A1, which has 22 SM activated and thus 1408 Shader Processing Units, 88 TMUs, and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1530 MHz and goes up to 1785 MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5 through a 192-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 2001MHz, or 8GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, this graphics card requires one 8-pin power connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1660 will enable medium to high graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on High graphics settings at 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 1060.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1660 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, so our recommendation would be to use 1920x1080 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-8500 and 12GB of RAM for optimal performance.
