Today, nVIDIA released the final retail model of GeForce 600 series card, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. The GTX 650 Ti is the aptly named successor to last’s years model GeForce GTX 550 Ti, and will occupy the same $150 price point that the GTX 550 Ti launched into. It will sit between the GTX 660 and the recently launched GTX 650, and despite the much closer similarities to the GTX 660 NVIDIA is placing the card into their GTX 650 family and pitching it as a higher performance alternative to the GTX 650. With that in mind, what exactly does NVIDIA’s final desktop consumer launch of 2012 bring to the table?

Point of View, a premier NVIDIA graphics partner and manufacturer of Android tablets, notebooks and other hardware, launches today the newest card of the GeForce 600 family: the POV GeForce GTX 650 Ti. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti sits nicely between the GeForce GTX 650 and the GTX 660 with an excellent performance and sweet price range! For all who have delayed their upgrade, this is the time.
The GeForce GTX 650 Ti sits nicely between the GeForce GTX 650 and the GTX 660 with an excellent performance and sweet price range! For all who have delayed their upgrade, this is the time! As other GeForce GTX 600 graphics cards, the GPU is built on the next generation streaming multiprocessor SMX technology which drastically improves performance. The chip is produced on a 28 nm die-size – allowing higher clock speeds and is twice as power efficient as its GeForce GTX 550 predecessor. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti is running on 928 MHz and works with DDR5 memory running on 5400 MHz. The GPU itself is split up into 768 CUDA cores for parallel processing of graphics calculations.
ASUS releases no less then GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics cards including the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Dual-Fan (GTX650TI-1GD5), the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC (GTX650TI-DC2O-1GD5) and the premium GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP (GTX650TI-DC2T-1GD5). The GTX 650 Ti Dual-Fan remains at a close to reference clock speeds of 928 MHz core with 5.40 GHz memory, while the DirectCU II OC ups the core speed to 968 MHz, and DirectCU II TOP to 1033 MHz. More after the break.

The GeForce® GTX 650 Ti is a DirectX 11 and shader model 5.0 supporting graphics card with of course existing NVIDIA features such as NVIDIA 3-way SLI® Technology, PhysX®, PureVideo® HD and CUDA™ being present!
The Dual-Fan card features a slightly trimmed-down version of its DirectCU cooler, which features a monolithic aluminum heatsink with a copper core. The DirectCU II, on the other hand, is ASUS workhorse performance-segment VGA cooler, which uses three copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU, to convey heat to a compound aluminum fin heatsink, which is ventilated by a pair of fans. All three models feature 1 GB of GDDR5 memory. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti packs 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide memory interface. Prices remain under wraps.
