In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770.

The GTX 1650 has a 439 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 770, but the GeForce GTX 770 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the GeForce GTX 770 exhibits a 50.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1650. 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 439 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 770 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1650 providing 14 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 three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 770, and so the GTX 1650 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 770 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 GTX 1650 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 96.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1650, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GeForce GTX 770 has 50.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 96.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, but the GTX 1650 has 14 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate. Overall, the GeForce GTX 770 has significantly better performance.

The GTX 1650 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 770. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 770.

The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 4GB requires 85 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 145 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 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 MSI Gaming X 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 MSI Gaming X 4GB features a dual-fan Torx 3.0 cooling solution and, Zero Frozr design, and Mystic Light functionality. This graphics card has above average overclocking potential.
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 1860 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a large 12% 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 85W, this graphics card requires a minimum 300W Power Supply Unit (PSU). A single 6-pin power connector is required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 MSI Gaming X 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 MSI Gaming X 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.
