Synthetics

Moving on to synthetic performance testing, there shouldn’t be any surprises here. This is the 4th TU116 card we’ve looked at – albeit the first with just a 128-bit memory bus – so its behavior is generally well understood.

Synthetic: TessMark - Image Set 4 - 64x Tessellation

Synthetic: Beyond3D Suite - Pixel Fillrate

Synthetic: Beyond3D Suite - Integer Texture Fillrate (INT8)

Synthetic: Beyond3D Suite - Floating Point Texture Fillrate (FP32)

Synthetic: Beyond3D Suite - INT8 Buffer Compression

Synthetic: Beyond3D Suite - FP32 Buffer Compression

With synthetic performance, we see the GTX 1650 Super benefitting significantly with tessellation throughput, most likely due to the inclusion of more GPCs to house the greater SM count. This still leaves it behind the GTX 1660 cards, but relatively close overall. Meanwhile we see just a slight uptick in pixel throughput, reflecting the fact that while the card has a good deal more memory bandwidth than the regular GTX 1650, for this simple (and generally well compressible) test, it doesn’t add much.

    Yeah, it's a ratio test, and both scores fluctuate depending on things like memory bandwidth and fill rates. In this case lower bandwidth cards tend to do better, since they aren't as likely to be bottlenecked elsewhere (whereas the 2080 Ti has bandwidth to spare for days).

    It's imperfect, to say the least. But people have been asking for the data, so here it is.

    That's strange.

    I thought, maybe, faster cards don't bother compressing since they don't need it and it uses more power. But other than that, I thought it's just a question of the supported algorithms.

    Considering these current GPUs seem pretty darn similar. My pick between NVIDIA & AMD would the AMD card simply for the fact that NVIDIA needs competition in the future. Reply

    One good thing about the SUPER variant of the 1650 is it adds the Turing version of NVENC which will boost performance for live streaming and Plex transcoding. The base 1650 used the Volta NVENC for some reason. Reply
