Introduction

The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest GPU from NVIDIA, targeted to video cards on the USD 150 segment. The Gigabyte GV-N65TOC-2GI comes overclocked, with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory instead of 1 GB and a better cooling solution than the standard model. Let’s see how this model from Gigabyte fared on our tests.

At USD 150, the new GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the quintessential mainstream video card, targeted to users who want to buy a good video card but don’t have the money to spend on a more expensive model. It comes to replace the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, and its main competitor is the Radeon HD 7770.

The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti uses the PCI Express 3.0 interface, similarly to its main competitor, while the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, which we also included in our comparisons, uses the PCI Express 2.0 interface. Differently from models starting with the GeForce GTX 660, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti doesn’t have a dynamic overclocking feature.

In the table below, we compare the main specifications for the video cards included in our review. The prices for the Gigabyte GV-N65TOC-2GI, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, and the Radeon HD 7770 were researched at Newegg.com on the day we published this review and do not include rebates. The price for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti was provided by NVIDIA.
