GeForce GTX 1650 vs Iris Xe comparison
For gaming, the GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card is better than the Iris Xe in our tests.
The GeForce GTX 1650 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 also has a significantly 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.
In addition, the Iris Xe has a significantly lower TDP at 15 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1650 at 75 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 GeForce GTX 1650 is faster than the Iris Xe.
