ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Extreme Edition Detailed
WCCFTech has some interesting pictures of new GeForce GTX 650 model from ZOTAC. While we can believe that the GTX 650 was absolutely not designed for gamers, ZOTAC has slightly different opinion, so they came up with Extreme Edition of one of the slowest Kepler card.
ZOTAC GTX 650 Extreme Edition arrives with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. I’m not sure why did they equip it with such a large memory size (the same as GTX 680 or GTX 670), while it has only 128-bit memory interface, so I guess this is simply a marketing feature.
The GTX 650 has the same GPU as GT 640 – GK107-450 – which has 384 CUDA cores. This model is fully modified, not only has it a non-reference cooler, but also a modified PCB, which looks more like the one from GTX 660. While it’s powered by single 6-pin power connectors the board has 3+1 phase PWM. Further we can notice that the card has a longer cooling solution, which packs 2 fans, situated on the top of large heatsink (that covers almost the whole card).
Card is equipped with two DVI’s, one HDMI and DisplayPort. ZOTAC’s GTX 650 Extreme Edition is available in China for $200.
