Along with our usual gaming results, we’ll also take a cursory look at compute performance for the GTX 1650 Super. This is one area where NVIDIA has developed an unusual advantage, at least for the moment, as AMD’s OpenCL driver for the Radeon RX 5000 series cards is currently broken and unfit for production use. I don’t expect anyone to be using a GTX 1650 Super for any serious compute work – generally if you need GPU compute, you’re after higher-end GPUs to really push performance – but if you do find yourself buying a $160 card for compute purposes, among modern cards NVIDIA is currently the only game in town for both OpenCL and CUDA.

    i still disagree... still more usefull then the vga connector.. and i bet displayport kvms.. are quite expensive compared to dvi kvms..... Reply

    You would lose that bet - had DisplayPort KVM about the same price as DVI. Reply

    The problem with DisplayPort KVMs is that Windows has hot plug enabled for DP and it can’t be disabled, which means switching one monitor in multi monitor setups can cause windows to rearrange, and cause difficulty with RDP. Reply

    Old connectors have their place because there are people out there that can't just afford to buy a new computer simply to keep up and replacing a specific component is all that is needed. These people usually surf the internet, watch YouTube and look at pictures family send them. They don't need a new monitor with a new connector just because a more modern video card "shouldn't" have an old connector. Reply

    I agree, give us more data. I'd like to see the codec ASICs start getting tested too. Reply

    Yup. I'd like to replace my massive and heavy evga gtx 1080ti with something smaller in size just so I can play indies and light weight games like LoL at 4k. I don't care about playing the latest AAA title at highest quality in 1080p Reply

    Trade my 970 for your 1080ti Reply

    I'm with you. I think highest quality settings are a mirage anyway. Reply

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'm hesitant to commit to anything at this second as adding resolutions would significantly increase the workload required in testing these cards (each run at one resolution is around 2 hours these days). So I hope you can understand why. But it's definitely something I'll be mulling over for GPU Bench 2020.

    Thanks Ryan! Especially appreciate confirmation of the updated NVENC ASIC in the 1650 Super. Turing's NVENC is notably better than Pascal's, and makes this card potentially interesting for video encoding duties. Reply
