In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500 8GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra.

The RX 5500 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1650. This results in the RX 5500 providing 134.8 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 RX 5500 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1650 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5500 providing 8.3 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 less than a year after the RX 5500, 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 RX 5500 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 32.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1650 is noticeably better than the RX 5500.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5500 8GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1650 is 1425 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 is 2456. The RX 5500 having 1031 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5500 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1650.

The RX 5500 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1650. This means that the RX 5500 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1650.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra requires 90 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5500 8GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1650 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500. The RX 5500 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 1650 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 5500 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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
The Radeon RX 5500 8GB is a rumoured entry-level graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series, expected to launch in October.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has [xx] shader processing units, [xx] TMUs and [xx]] ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at [xx]MHz and goes up to [xx]MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX570 comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of [xx]W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5500 8GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2019 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX 5300 XT 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5500 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5300 XT.
