In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 8850M.

The GTX 1650 Ti has a 860 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8850M. This results in the GTX 1650 Ti providing 58.2 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 Ti has a 860 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8850M. This results in the GTX 1650 Ti providing 37.5 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 Ti was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 8850M, and so the GTX 1650 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 8850M when running the latest games.

The GTX 1650 Ti has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 8850M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1650 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1650 Ti has 224 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 8850M, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 Ti is massively better than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8850M has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 Ti is 1705 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is 496. The GTX 1650 Ti having 1209 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1650 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The GTX 1650 Ti transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 8850M. This means that the GTX 1650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8850M requires 45 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1650 Ti. The GTX 1650 Ti requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8850M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1650 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8850M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is smaller and doesn't drain the battery as fast compared to the mobile version, but it is weaker in performance.
Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing.

GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed N18P-G62, which has 1024 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs, 32 ROPs and 16 SMs. The central unit runs at 1485 MHz and goes up to 1665 MHz in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 2000MHz, or 8GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, this graphics card does not require a dedicated power connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q will offer a performance around 10% slower than the desktop GTX 1650 Ti. This will enable medium to high graphics performance on modern AAA 2020 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 Mobile.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q 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 modern low-end processor such as the i5-8300 and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
Radeon HD 8850M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Venus PRO which has 10 Compute Units activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 625MHz and goes up to 775MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for 17" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above NVIDIA's GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8850M.
