GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER vs GeForce GTX 970 specs and performance
For gaming, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 970 in our tests.
In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER has a significantly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER also has a significantly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.
Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that they both have the same amount of memory at 4 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.
In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER has a significantly lower TDP at 100 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 970 at 145 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.
In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER over the GeForce GTX 970.
