GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Review, SLI Performance Tested

By on April 22, 2013, 3:16 AM

The GTX 650 Ti became our favorite $100 - $150 graphics card last year, as it thrashed the Radeon HD 7770. Meanwhile, AMD held on to the $150 - $200 price range with the Radeon HD 7850. Then last month AMD decided to attack the $150 price point with a new HD 7790 GPU, but the reaction didn't take long to arrive.

Just a week later Nvidia officially countered by releasing the poorly named GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, now the third graphics card to carry the GTX 650 name. At $170, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost sits between the Radeon HD 7790 and the 7850. In terms of performance, we actually expect the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost to be a lot faster than the GTX 650 Ti, even when it's based on the same GK106 architecture.

"Do we need more GPUs filling $30 gaps in-between offerings?"

Of course we do :/

If you only buy Nvidia cards for example, the GTX 650 Ti Boost is better value than the GTX 650 Ti for those that can't cough up the price of the GTX 660.

When EVGA didn't have any GTX 680s in stock last month, I gave my folding money to my roommate and he picked up one of these cards. This card is incredibly tiny and makes absolutely no noise while delivering well-above-average performance. I was extremely surprised at the performance difference he gained by picking this up.

Wonder if one of these cards would power my 2560 x 1600 display with my games at max settings (Crysis 3)? Lol. I guess the poor and downtrodden graphics cards too.

Do you think these 1gig cards will hold up when next gen is out and new engines are built for 4+gig gddr5? Even though these cards have more transistors, will 1gig impact performance on unreal engine 4, source2, etc etc.

Troll much? Or is this a legit question? If you're serious I suggest you send that monitor to someone who can actually handle all those pixels with a much larger brain.

Wow imagine if AMD added a 256bit bus to the 7790 :/. 960 cores rocking a 128bit interface is just sad.
