Gigabyte GTX 1650 Super Windforce OC vs. Asus ROG Strix Vega 56

the 56 is a fair bit faster than the 1650 super iirc. if you don't mind the power consumption of the card and it's working just fine. 

the 1650 super is more of a downgrade in terms of performance.

I'm thinking of acquiring the Gigabyte card for gaming on our living room system. That said I already have a Vega 56 in my personal computer. Should I swap it in or keep the Vega? I can't seem to find the Gigabyte card on any benchmarking site to draw a comparison, nor is the Windforce OC variant listed in the GPU tier list here.

 

I do most of my gaming on my pc and the tv computer is only used (for now) for more casual gaming with my partner (Tetris Effect, Pinball FX3, Jackbox games, those kinds of games)

 

So my questions are:

 

1. Should I get the Gigabyte card in the first place or is it a dud.

2. Is it better than the Vega 56 and should I swap the cards on my main system?

That was what I thought. I'll continue looking for other deals on 1650 supers and comparables for now as the lack of reviews/benchmarking on the Gigabyte card is putting me off, thank you for your advice!.

the 1650S will be a lot easier to cool and fit into smaller systems, only draws around 120w. a vega 56 is pretty close to a 1660ti so its substanstially more powerful but also hotter and that sorta thing. the 1650S is still pretty good and would be more than enough for console-like stuff

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

1650S' advantage is better hardware video encoding and decoding while drawing much less power. It's still slower.

Review of the Gigabyte 1650 Super Windforce OC on TPU: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1650-super-windforce-oc/

Also the GPU itself is the same as any 1650 Super so the performance is also basically the same, the difference is mostly the noise/temperature. If you want to upgrade the Vega 56, you will need to look for a 5700XT or higher to have a performance increase that justifies the upgrade in my opinion, if you want something that is similar to the Vega then the 1660 Super would probably where you should look.

I've found a "like new" deal on a used Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580 4GB GDDR5. I'm wondering if that's a better deal over the gigabyte...
