ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti Line-up Pictured and Detailed
ZOTAC is preparing at least three GeForce GTX 650 Ti models. It seems that all cards look quite similar to each other, however they differ in memory configuration. Some of them arrive with 1GB and the other have 2GB.
Let’s talk about GeForce GTX 650 Ti first. According to previous leaks this new mid-range card might be slower than Radeon HD 7850. Card will be packed with GK106-220 GPU, which features 768 CUDA cores and 16 Raster Operating Units. Reference-based models will have 928 MHz GPU clock and 1350 MHz memory clock. This new addition to mid-range segment will be offered with 1 or 2GB of memory. NVIDIA decided to use 128-bit memory bus with the GTX 650 Ti, so this might be the biggest downside of this card. The official TDP of GTX 650 Ti is 110 W, however some manufactures add a 6-pin power connector for better stability (just like ZOTAC did)

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB
This is the slowest card from the pack. It arrives with a non-reference clock though — 941 MHz for core and 5400 MHz for memory. Card is equipped with 1GB GDDR5 memory and 128-bit interface. Card looks exactly the same as GeForce GTX 650 non-Ti, it even has the same display outputs: DVI, miniHDMI and VGA. Card features dual-slot cooler with a single orange fan in the middle. The exact dimensions of this card are 4.367 x 6.03 in. The MSRP of this model is $160.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB
The 2GB version has a different display outputs. It is equipped with two DVI ports, and two HDMI’s. The reason behind different outputs configuration is that it should handle more displays at once, since it offers higher memory buffer. This model also comes with 941 MHz clock. Card will be available for around $180.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB AMP! Edition
The AMP Edition is clocked at 1033 MHz clock. Surprisingly this is the first GTX 650 Ti to feature overclocked memory, and what is also interesting is that the memory was overclocked by 800 MHz (you have to agree, that’s something). So the effective speed of memory is 6200 MHz. The AMP! Edition is listed for $190.
