Hi. I'm not a professional video editor but I often use After Effects and Premiere Pro for personal video editing. I also play a few relatively old games.

Now this card (6500 XT) looks better than GTX 1650 in gaming, but what is stopping me from buying 6500 XT is there are a lot of reviews about it being so bad in video rendering/encoding. Even called it garbage.

It says it doesn't support 4K H.264/H.265 encoding. Note the word 4K as that's my primary doubt.

My first doubt is, why cards like 1050 Ti and 1650 are not criticized for video editing like this one? Are they actually better for basic video editing including 4K?

Second doubt is, when it says "4K H.264/H.265 encoding" not supported, does it mean it will also not support 1920x1080 OR 2560 x 1440 video rendering too?

OR it does actually supports video encoding/rendering/export upto 2560 x 1440 but it just doesn't work for 4K videos only?
 
It doesn't support encoding.
This means - all encoding will be done in software without any gpu hardware acceleration.

Decoding is supported just fine.
Also note - for full performance PCIE 4.0 system is necessary.
The card gets severely reduced performance in PCIE 3.0 mode (it has only PCIE x4 connectivity).

TLDR
If you're doing any kind of video editing, then choose a different card.

Okay. So I wonder why they mentioned 4K specifically? Why simply didn't mention: Doesn't support H.264/H.265
