A record for an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU has been added on UserBenchmark’s database, and there is convincing evidence pointing to this being the mobile version of the upcoming graphics card. The average bench score of 45.6% put the hardware in 71st position in UserBenchmark’s ranking, sandwiched neatly between an old AMD R9 280X and an even older Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 (SLI disabled).

It appears the mobile version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 has made a visit to UserBenchmark. Only one sample has been tested, so obviously the results have a high error of margin. However, it seems the GPU performed as expected: For instance, it placed ahead of all of the variants of the GeForce GTX 1050 – Ti, desktop, laptop, Max-Q, etc.

As for the AMD competition, a mobile Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU would offer entry-level to midrange performance, so it would possibly go up against challengers such as the RX 550 or RX 560. In UserBenchmark’s table at least, the newcomer soundly thrashes the RX 550 (20.8%; 139th) and also outpaces the RX 560 (31.3%; 98th). If you move to the midrange of the AMD Radeon 500 series, then the RX 570 (60.9%; 57th) puts the GeForce GTX 1650 in its place. All the AMD products mentioned here are the desktop variants, though.

As for evidence that this is a mobile version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 being tested, the CPU used in this particular benchmark was Intel’s Coffee Lake Core i7-8750H, which is a mobile SoC. With a bit more poking around, you can also find the system used for the benchmark, which in this case is listed as a Micro-Star GF63 Thin 8SC – so it looks like MSI could be preparing an addition to its GF series of gaming laptops.
