The Difference: Nvidia GTX 1650 vs 1060

Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is basically a mobile graphics card that functions for Turing architecture. It is available for laptops as well as for mobiles. The desktop version when compared to the mobile version is slightly below as the mobile version GTX1650 uses all the 1024 shades of the TU117 chips.

This version came into existence in 2019-2020. From March 2020, the GTX 1650 mobile version is also available with fast GDDR6 graphics memory as a new and refresh element. This element has also become popular in a short span of time.

Its memory speed is around 8000 MHz and memory bus width of 128 Bit. The memory cannot be shared and technology is of 12 nm.

Nvidia GTX 1060

The GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card is loaded with the innovative new gaming technologies and system, making it a perfect choice for many latest-high-definition game users.

It is powered by NVIDIA PASCAL, which is the most advanced GPU architecture .

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 vs Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
 The Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 for laptops and PC is a type of a mobile graphics card which is based on the Turing Architecture(TU117 chip). The mobile and smartphone Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is a graphics card mainly for high end laptops and PCs. It is based on the Pascal architecture .
 The technology is of `12nm.  The technology is of 16nm FinFET at TSMC.
 The performance of this one is considered to be slightly better and good then the old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.  This is the best version till date, and it’s performance is even better than GeForce GTX 1650.
 The power consumption of the 1650 for laptops and PCs especially is specified at 50 Watt( Total Graphics Power) by Nvidia and hence is 15 Watt higher than the efficient and slower MAX-Q variant of the 1650. The power consumption is particularly specified with a TGB of 80 Watt and therefore slightly and bit below the olf GTX 970 M. Since mid or summer 2017 a low power variant(Max Q) is available and accessible for thin and light laptops with reduced performance and a lower TGB of 60-70 Watt.
 The codename of 1650 is N 18P-G0, N18P-G61.  The codename of 1060 is N17E-G1. 
 The bus is 128 bit. The bus is 192 bit.
 The Max memory provided by GeForce GTX 1650 is 4096 MB. The max memory provided by GeForce 1060 is 6144 MB. 
 The Size of 1650 is 1/3 The size of 1060 is 2/3.
 The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 was introduced in the market on 23rd April 2019. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 was introduced in the market on 18th August 2016. 
 The transistors of this one are not known. The transistors of 1606 are around 4400 million.
 Features provided by 1650 are many. It can be used for multipurpose. The features provided by 1060 is Multi-projection, VR ready, G-sync, Vulkan, Multi monitor use etc.
 The cores are 1024-unifies. The cores are 1280-unified.
 The performance of 1650 as when compared to its mobile and laptop versions are quite equal and not much difference is seen. The performance of 1060 when compared to its mobile and laptop version has differences. The performance of mobile GTX 1606 is a few percent below a reference GTX 1060 desktop card.
 This version is less popular than GTX 1060. This is the most popular and demanded version although there have been new versions launched in the market after this.
gtx 1650 vs 1060

There are more differences when we see costs and usage.

However both have some similarities as well :-

  • The memory provided by GTX 1650 and GTX 1060 is the same i.e. 8000 Mhz.
  • There is no shared memory in both.
  • Both the versions provide its service in both mobile and laptops/PCs.


The GTX 1060 is no doubt the best graphic card.

Still to a surprise of many GTX 1650 has managed to make a unique and unexpected place in the market.

These differences might work as a comfort for many GTX 1060 users who are using it currently who might be worried as they are getting left behind by Nvidia’s new generation of turing based GTX-16 series GPUs.

It is definitely assured that GTX 1060 is still a fine graphics card in its own right.
