GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER vs Radeon RX 6500 XT benchmarks

For gaming, the Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER in our tests.

In our comparison, the Radeon RX 6500 XT has a significantly 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 Radeon RX 6500 XT also has a significantly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, they both have the same amount of memory at 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 SUPER has a slightly lower TDP at 100 W when compared to the Radeon RX 6500 XT at 107 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the Radeon RX 6500 XT is faster than the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER.



6500 is much better for the price. 👍
