NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in April 2019. This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 20% in our PC benchmark.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q has 4 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 156 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 1020 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1125 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 35W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
