Looking at the card we straight away noticed the Cyclone II cooler which we've seen before and really liked. It's always managed to not only look good, but also perform extremely well. What we would have loved to see is a black PCB against it instead of the brown to complete the look. The lower mid-range aim of the model, though, means that companies don't tend to pay as much attention when it comes to PCB aesthetics.
Looking around there's not a whole lot to look at with the only stand out being the single 6-pin PCIe power connector located at the back of the card. Like the GTX 650 we also don't see a SLI connector and that's because the GTX 650 series simply doesn't support SLI.
Finishing our look at the card with the I/O side of things you can see we've got a Dual-Link DVI-D and Dual-Link DVI-I along with a Mini-HDMI connector to round out the connectivity side of things.
Out of the box the new GTX 650 Ti will give you a 928MHz core clock while the 1GB of GDDR5 will come in at 5400MHz QDR. Other key information includes 768 CUDA Cores which is a big increase over the 384 on the non-Ti version of the card. As for the memory, that sits on the same 128-bit memory bus.
Looking above you can see that MSI have of course chosen to overclock this card out of the box with the core being boosted to 993MHz. Just like the GTX 650 Power Edition, though, we can see that MSI have chosen to leave the memory clock alone.
It would've been nice to see them give a slightly boost to the memory clock, but as we've known in the past, the core clock increase is what's going to give us the main performance increase.
