NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Review

Crysis 3

Crysis 3, which is powered by Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE 3 technology, is the third installment in this popular franchise. Crysis 3 is the sequel to 2011’s Crysis 2 and follows Prophet as he returns to New York a few years after the events of Crysis 2. Like previous games in the franchise, Crysis 3 has impressive visuals that can tax even the most powerful PCs when cranked up to their maximum values. We tested this game at various resolutions with all in-game graphics options set to Very High, with 4X MSAA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled and motion blur set to high.

We saw more of the same in our Crysis 3 tests. Once again, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST cards outpaced all of the other cards we tested, save for the higher-end GeForce GTX 660.  And, yet again, we have a good example of the 2GB frame buffer proving useful at the higher resolution.

Lol Well that didn't take long. Somebody must have a well planted mole in the rival's shop.

HA! For sure. This business is tooth and nail. Everyone knows everyone's business. There's something about graphics cards that is just hyper-competitive.

They probably had it waiting in the wings and ready to counter an AMD threat at that price range. They probably have others just waiting too.

I've been hung up on ATi video cards for a long time but it's certainly time for an upgrade. To use this bad boy, I'd have to replace the computer I'm currently using. About the only thing I wouldn't have to replace is my PSU. Does anyone know if PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible? My motherboard supports 2.0 so I'm not sure if I could even install something like this.

@ NoRest4Wicked: Yes, PCI 3.0 is backwards compatible with PCI 2.0 boards as it uses the same connector designs! You just obviously wont be utilizing it's full capabilities.

Yea I'm in the same boat. In order to upgrade any further graphically, I have to upgrade my Motherboard. Wish I had enough to do that. It would be awesome to have a card like this!
