Let’s start like this – just forget about the Ultra quality with GPUs that are equipped with 4 or even 6 GB video memory. The game is crashing very often and it’s not a very good experience. Apart from that, on Low, both contenders can go above 60 FPS, and the 50W rival almost hit 80 FPS.

Normal is the sweet spot in terms of graphics quality and frames per second. In this situation, the GeForce GTX 1650 [40W] reaches 57 FPS but as always, the 50W video card is faster (21%).
