NVIDIA and EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Video Card Review

NVIDIA went back to the drawing board with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti video card that was released in October 2012 and gave it a more horsepower! NVIDIA took the GeForce GTX 650 Ti's GK106 'Kepler' GPU and tweaked it a bit to get even more performance from it, while keeping the price point the same. The changes include GPU boost, 768 CUDA cores, 1GB or 2GB of memory running on a 192-bit interface and 2-way SLI multi-GPU support! Read on to see how the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost performs!

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB video card launched in October 2012 with a $149 suggested retail price. Here we are just five months later and we have the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 1GB for $149. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST is a far better gaming graphics card at this price point and it just goes to show power of eliminating the memory bottleneck and the higher clocks speeds of NVIDIA GPU Boost technology. Owners of the original GeForce GTX 650 Ti video card won't be happy when they read this, but if you've been waiting for something sweet to come out in the $150-$170 price range, you should have finally found it!

I'd swap my GTX 570 for this card (2GB version). Less power used (minimal FPS difference) and less heat dissipated means my room doesn't run 5 degrees hotter than the rest of the house.

yeah, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST is one heck of a card for those gaming at 1920x1080. I also advise the 2GB version and I can't wait to see where these end up after rebate. If the 2GB cards can get down to $130-$140 it would be pretty epic.

Unfortunately the lowest price I saw on these is $169, which is nowhere to the $114 mentioned at the end of the article. That link leads to a regular GTX650ti and is $129 after rebate...

EVGA has the 650 Ti Boost for $169 and the 650 Ti Boost SuperClocked for $179. Everywhere I have looked the card is running about the same price. This card is running basically the same price as the non-boost 650 Ti.

I went with the SuperClocked. Since I just bought my 650 Ti about 30 days ago I was able to upgrade and just pay the difference plus shipping. I opted for the SuperClocked so basically I paid $10 to upgrade and about $10 for shipping, I could not pass on that since it was good enough boost in performance for me. I could have opted for the non-SuperClocked and just paid the $10 for shipping.

The line you are talking about -

For example, right now you can buy an MSI GeForce GTX 650 1GB Ti for $114 shipped after rebate.


That is a GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB... Not the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB that was reviewed. I was just showing how street prices after rebate are lower than the SRP. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost can be had for $169 online as there are no promotions for it yet.
