GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q vs GeForce GTX 1650 comparison

For gaming, the GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q in our tests.

The GeForce GTX 1650 has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

As stated by the manufacturer, the GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q has significantly more memory with 6 GiB of memory compared to 4 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 has a slightly lower TDP at 75 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q at 80 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1650 is better than the GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q.
