In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra.

The GTX 1650 has a 163 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 200 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 240.2 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 163 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1650. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 34.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1650. 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 RX Vega, 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 RX Vega.

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 RX Vega has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 1650, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 1650 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 1650 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX Vega, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is marginally better than the RX Vega.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1425 and the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 4116. The RX Vega having 2691 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega 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 RX Vega. This means that the GTX 1650 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX Vega.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra requires 90 Watts to run and the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB requires 295 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega. The RX Vega requires 205 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega 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 Ultra is an Nvidia GeForce low-end graphics card which launched in April 2020. The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra 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 daul-slot graphics card which connects to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T106, more specifically a TU106-125, which has 14 SM activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1590 MHz with the Boost Clock.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 90W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra will enable low to mid-level 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 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 Ultra is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, 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 i5-8400 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XTX 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 1247MHz witth a boost clock speed of 1546MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 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 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 8GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XTX 8GB is in in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1080. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XTX 8GB 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.
