We were quite a bit disappointed to find out here that Nvidia’s new GeForce GTX 650 video card is nothing more than a GT 640 with GDDR5 memory. The company is apparently going to use a different chip for its Ti version.
Therefore the new GeForce GTX 650 Ti is powered by Nvidia’s Kepler-based GK106 silicon, Donanim Haber reported. This chip is made in the same 28 nm manufacturing process at TSMC just like the GK104 and AMD’s Tahiti. GK106 has 960 CUDA cores inside and that almost three times the raw power when compared with the plain GTX 650.
The card features a rather short PCB that comes fitted with 1GB or 2GB of GDDR5 memory working on a tight 128-bit bus. This means that playing games at very high resolutions and high AA settings is likely out of the question, but it should be decent in FullHD at medium quality settings.
