Introduction and Technical Specifications

nVidia GTX650Ti Boost Review  


We're all big fans of technology, and love the latest and greatest hardware. It's why we're all here after all. We love bringing you the limits of what is possible, and you like to look at gigantic benchmark numbers and dream of the day when a lottery win will allow you to run a Quad-SLI Titan setup. To be honest, so do we.

However, times are hard and although we can all dream, we have to accept the reality that many of us are gaming on meagre budgets. Thankfully the two big manufacturers, nVidia and AMD, realise that whilst a Titan or HD7990 is great for the headline grabbing, the real heart of their business comes from producing cards that defy expectations by producing high quality images at playable frame-rates for an affordable price.

Equally, as we've often said here at OC3D, when you're on a tight budget you can't afford to break what little you have, so most people will go for the fastest clock speed within their price range. Enter the GTX650Ti Boost, a balls-to-the-wall version of the GTX650Ti.

Technical Specifications

With the forthcoming HD7790, the timing of the GTX650Ti Boost is impeccable. However, the nVidia literature aims it squarely at the HD7850, a card we rate highly here. That's a big target to go for, so let's find out if this latest affordable GeForce card can back up that claim.

Sweet little card. It's about time Nvidia did something about the 7850.

Interesting to see it has a SLI finger too, would love to see these tested in SLI.

Thanks for the review Tom.

Edit. Just had a look around and this card is being soooo well received.

Awards everywhere, left right and center.

I'm glad tbh. It's very rare for Nvidia to offer any value with low end cards. They're usually stupid little woefully underpowered wastes of space.Quote

The 7790 is faster, been looking around and it wins more than 75% of the time for cheaper.

Hopefully when tom reviews the 7790 we can see more benchmarks to prove other websites right or wrong.Quote

I find it hard to justify this card unless your on a really tight budget and don't want to spend the extra on a GTX 660 which can be had for £20 more if you shop around. Ebuyer are selling a KFA2 GTX 660 for £149 with free delivery at the moment which would put me off. The pricing is too close to the GTX 660 for my liking. Just my opinion though.
Nice review though Tom Quote
