NVIDIA has just released it’s new mid-range graphics card named GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost.
The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is equipped with GK106-240-A1 GPU, which has 768 CUDA cores. The card has more similarities to GTX 660 rather than to GTX 650 Ti, that’s because it features both same GPU and the same width of bus (192-bit0. As the name suggest, this is the first mid-range card to feature Boost Clock. Technically it doesn’t really improve the performance that much, it’s rather related to the uncapped bandwidth of the new interface. Moving forward to clocks, the base gpu clock is 980 MHz, while the boost is 1033 MHz. Obviously majority of the manufacturers will use a faster clock. The memory however, should stay at reference speed of 6 GHz on most of the models. It has 2GB of GDDR5 memory by default. NVIDIA will offer this card also in 1GB version, which will cost noticeably less. The other interesting fact is that the GTX 650 Ti Boost only requires one 6-pin power connector, from which it consumes up to 140W (at reference speed). The card not only supports GPU Boost, but also PhysX, NVIDIA Surround, CUDA, 2-way SLI, Adaptive V-Sync and many more. The reference model, which looks exactly the same as GTX 660 is equipped with two DVI’s, one HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2. The price varies depending on the region. The official MSRP for 2GB model is $169, while the 1GB model costs $149.
