EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SuperClocked 2GB Video Card Review

The Card




You can see the overall cooler design is pretty much identical to the NVIDIA reference version. We've got the fan on the right side, which draws cool air in, and pushes it directly across the core and straight out the back of the case.






As we move to the top you see the exact setup you'd expect - a single 6-pin PCIe power connector towards the back, while closer to the front, we have a single SLI connector, allowing us to run up to two of these video cards together for extra performance.




Finishing off our look at the card with the connectivity, you can see we've got a Dual-Link DVI-D and DVI-I port along with a HDMI and DisplayPort to round off the connections. This is a fairly standard setup that we've seen on other GTX 650 Ti Boost offerings.





Out of the box a reference clocked GTX 650 Ti Boost comes with a core clock of 980MHz, which is pushed to 1033MHz via boost. As for the 2GB of GDDR5 memory, that comes in at 6008MHz QDR.




EVGA have provided a nice boost with the overclock. While they've chosen to leave the GDDR5 speed at 6008MHz, they've pushed the core up to 1072MHz, which is in turn pushed even higher to 1137MHz via boost.


This compares to the Palit and Gainward offerings which saw only a small core increase to 1006MHz, which was pushed to 1072MHz via boost. Our testing of those video cards showed that the small overclock really did little for extra performance, so we're hoping the larger core increase that EVGA has offered, separates this offering a little more from the pack.
