[FPS Benchmarks] Need For Speed Heat on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 [40W and 50W] – the bigger GPU almost reaches 60 FPS on Ultra quality

When it comes to racing games, the Need For Speed franchise has contributed a lot to the popularisation of the genre. The NFS games have their lows as well but the Need For Speed Heat is a decent game with plenty of exotic cars, upgrades, police pursuits, and of course – racing.

Just like FIFA 20, this game uses the Frostbite engine but in this title, the engine shows its power because NFS Heat looks good. Even on Low, we can spot decent details everywhere which is good news for gamers with not-so-powerful machines.

The GeForce GTX 1650 [40W, 896 CUDA, GDDR6] and the GeForce GTX 1650 [50W, 1024 CUDA, GDDR5] are well-known and common video cards so let’s see their performance in NFS Heat.

GeForce GTX 1650 [50W] 84 fps (+12%) 67 fps (+20%) 58 fps (+21%)





Verdict

We see good results coming from both GPUs. The GeForce GTX 1650 [40W] achieved a decent FPS on every preset. It seems that High is the right playground for this GPU – 56 frames is enough (probably) for a normal gaming experience.

It’s not a surprise that the GeForce GTX 1650 [50W] is faster. This video card can go up to 58 FPS on Ultra (at least our test sample) while the 40W GPU can hit 56 FPS but on High preset.
