ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1650 Review

The Software: GPU TweakII

I’ve never been a fan of most of the GPU tweaking programs save for After Burner and Precision X. These aren’t perfect, but GPU Tweak among the many makes them seem much better than they are.

Again, much like with the AORUS Engine, the window isn’t re-sizable, text is small, cramped and the default colour scheme makes it troublesome to use. If for instance you compare this with the UX of ASUS AI Suite, GPU Tweak leaves a lot to be desired. ASUS AI Suite is an example of what all other competitors should be doing in terms of presentation and usability, whereas GPU Tweak is an example of what not to do. So, within the context of aesthetics, GPU Tweak isn’t up to the task.

In terms of usability however, it has it all if not a little more. You can create performance profiles with ease, take screenshots, allow clocks and fan profiles to apply at system start up etc. Of particular importance are the OSD features which allow you to display all sorts of relevant system info as any overlay on your software. This info can be logged to a text file as well. A neat little feature as well is the ability to add an image as an overlay in a box. Essentially you may add your own watermark for video content produced on the graphics card.

Overall, GPU Tweak could do with as serious UX redesign, but in terms of functionality it’s pretty solid.
