ASUS GTX 1650 Phoenix Graphics Card Review

ASUS GTX 1650 Phoenix

The new Nvidia GTX 1650 series is here at last, and ASUS have sent us their new Phoenix model to test! Now, these aren’t going to topple the RTX 2080 Ti any time soon. However, at about 1/10th of the cost, are they 1/10th of the performance? For those who are gaming at 1080p, you don’t need to spend megabucks on your new build to play the latest games. For those who want to save on cost, but still play the latest titles, the GTX 1650 cards are very appealing. However, just how fast are they and can they keep up with the budget offerings from AMD? Let’s find out!

16xx Reviews

We’ve already tested the ASUS GTX 1660 OC Phoenix, and it was fantastic. Incredible performance for both 1080p and 1440p. At a reduced cost, I’m expecting the GTX 1650 to perform well at 1080p, but not so well at 1440p or 4K. Here are all our 1650 reviews. However, if you want to spend a little more, you can read our reviews of the 1660 and 1660 Ti’s all linked below also.

Features

Pretty much all of the GTX 1650 cards are about the same. The fine details come down to the cooler, and any factory overclocks. The bigger the cooler, the higher the card can be clocked for more performance. The Phoenix is a fairly mid-range model, with a modest cooler, so I’m expecting it to sit in the middle of the range of GTX 1650 cards.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
