GeForce GTX 1650 vs GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GPU is faster than the GeForce GTX 1650 in gaming.

In our comparison the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 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 1660 SUPER also has a slightly 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 the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER has significantly more memory with 6 GiB of memory compared to 4 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 has a significantly lower TDP at 75 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER at 125 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 1660 SUPER over the GeForce GTX 1650.

Graphics card specifications

Core Clock speed and Boost clock speed directly influence gaming performance, typically the higher, the better. When thermals and power delivery allow, the GPU will raise its core clock to the boost clock for even more performance. A higher core clock speed may cause a higher TDP, however.

Memory is important for high resolutions and high resolution textures in games, if you're gaming at 4K or even 8K lots of memory is required. Too little memory may result in stuttering as the GPU tries to swap and fit everything in memory.

Memory bandwidth relates to the speed at which the GPU memory can be accessed. Higher speed is better as the graphics card won't need to wait for memory access before rendering a frame to the screen.

The memory bus width doesn't directly impact performance but, it the memory bandwidth. It measures how much data can be sent at one to and from the memory.

TDP (Thermal Design Power) is a measurement of how much energy is lost as heat when a GPU is running. This has an impact on system temperatures. If temperatures get too high (typically around 100 °C or 200 °F), the GPU will lower its performance in order to prevent damage to the chip. Adequate cooling is essential for good performance. If you're comparing two laptop GPUs, you may take this into account when choosing between the two, since a cooler laptop generally runs faster for longer.
