Colorful is preparing its new iGame graphics card, also known as Flame Wars, but Colorful is using simpler “Ymir” code for international naming.
The GTX 650 Ti Boost, which is coming out tomorrow, is the latest addition to the mainstream segment of graphics cards. It is believed to be the last model of GeForce 600 series. The Colorful iGame 650 Ti Boost is using the same design as the GTX 670. The card looks exactly the same as a 670, the only visual difference is a missing SLI connector for 3-way SLI. That’s because GTX 650 Ti Boost does not support 3-way configuration. Interestingly, the GTX 650 Ti Boost is using two 6-pin power connectors, just like the 670 does.
Colorful’s 650 Ti Boost iGame Edition is equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, which is a standard setup for this model. It’s also equipped with the Shark Bionic cooler, which is a hybrid cooling system: triple fins, hybrid fans and horizontal-cross heat pipes. Of course the card is also using the Air-Kit, which is an additional external heat sink. The interesting feature is the OC button, still present with this card, so it’s like giving a boost to the “Boost” card. What is also intriguing is the GPU this card is using — GK106-240-A1 (the GTX 650 Ti has GK106-400-A1). This is probably an exclusive GPU made for the Asian market. As a side note, there was a GK106-220-A1 GPU with 650 Ti made for Inno3D.
Colorful’s GTX 650 Ti Boost iGame comes with a backplate, which is probably not a very useful feature for such a model. The source mentions a clock of 980 MHz, that would probably be the base clock.
