GeForce GTX 650 vs Iris Xe comparison

In our benchmarks, the Iris Xe beats the GeForce GTX 650 in gaming performance.

In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 650 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 Iris Xe has a significantly lower TDP at 15 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 650 at 64 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the Iris Xe is better than the GeForce GTX 650.
