NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Video Card Overclocked - Final Thoughts

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Video Card Overclocked

We overclock NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost video card and see just what the new mid-range bad boy can do.

Final Thoughts

 

The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost clearly has some head room when it comes to the overclocking side of things, we just proved that here today. What we're really looking forward to is finding out what path companies go down when it comes to the aftermarket cooling side of things.

 

While the reference cooler is clearly capable and offers some good noise levels, the GPU runs a little warmer than we'd like. 75c at load isn't an issue, but we're clearly not going to complain about numbers that come in lower.

 

The new GTX 650 Ti Boost is going to be a thorn in AMD's side. NVIDIA have done a good job with this model, but the other thing we're interested in seeing is the performance of the 1GB variant that's due soon. Coming in at the same price point of the HD 7790, if the past is anything to go by, performance should be similar between the two models, with the lesser amount of RAM compared to the 2GB model we looked at today making little difference in overall performance.

 

The battle between AMD and NVIDIA is no doubt heating up at the mid-range market with the release of two new models within a week of each other. Where you throw down your money is probably going to be a difficult task. Both companies are offering good products, but it seems clear that if you're happy to spend a bit more, you're going to get a bit more performance out of the NVIDIA offering. If your budget is a little stricter, though, the AMD offering might be what you want to go with.
