NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Round-Up: EVGA, ZOTAC, GB

9 thumbs up

How We Configured Our Test Systems: We tested the graphics cards in this article on an Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard powered by a Core i7-3960X six-core processor and 16GB of G.SKILL DDR3-1866 RAM. The first thing we did when configuring the test system was enter the system UEFI and set all values to their "optimized" or "high performance" default settings and disabled any integrated peripherals that wouldn't be put to use. The memory's X.M.P. profile was enabled to ensure better-than-stock performance and the hard drive was then formatted and Windows 7 Ultimate x64 was installed. When the installation was complete we fully updated the OS and installed the latest DirectX redist, along with the drivers, games, and benchmark tools necessary to complete our tests.

Unigine Heaven v3.0 Benchmark
Pseudo-DirectX 11 Gaming

Unigine Heaven v3.0

Unigine's Heaven Benchmark v3.0 is built around the Unigine game engine. Unigine is a cross-platform, real-time 3D engine, with support for DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 and OpenGL. The Heaven benchmark--when run in DX11 mode--also makes comprehensive use of tessellation technology and advanced SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion) It also features volumetric cumulonimbus clouds generated by a physically accurate algorithm and a dynamic sky with light scattering.

The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti cards all finished within a few percentage points of one another, regardless of their frequencies or memory configurations (1GB or 2GB). Generally speaking, the 650 Ti cards finish well ahead of the Radeon HD 7770 here, but a notch behind the 1GB Radeon HD 7850. The higher-end GeForce GTX 600 series cards are all significantly faster, as you would expect.

Chinese hu:

The performance is good considering the lower cost.

The design of the card isn't complex for the same reasons,...........lower costs.

ha哈Big SmileHello Finally someone back to me Good fun You are my first contact with foreigners Online It's nice meeting you I can't understand English Because I'm Chinese Is computer hardware enthusiasts Want to know foreign friends I do not know these words are not wrong Please forgive me Looking forward to your reply 哈哈

I don't know Chinese either. I just used Google to translate your comment. Welcome to our website.

I like the EVGA and Gigabyte brands a lot. Not so much Zotac.

These GTX650Ti cards are good performers for the money, but they don't have an SLI connector on them. That is why I like the GTX-660 and GTX-660Ti better.

EVGA Relatively rare in China Gigabyte many I use the GTX650ti of GALAXY brand  I wanted to buy MSI models GTX650ti But have not yet listed Obviously, MSI work better China has more second-tier brands Is its own brand Features work in general Selling price is relatively cheap Indeed true Mid-range graphics cards without SLI Unfortunately How much your GTX650ti price? We here Price 1000rmb That is, $ 160 Finally, want to say that our ability to communicate through chat software? For example, do you use msn is not it? I can register and talk to you Thank you very much

We can get the EVGA GTX-650Ti for $146.82 (916.3770 RMB) with free shipping provided, here in the US.

We like the EVGA brand because they offer a lifetime warranty on products that they sell. Also, they have a "trade-up" program that let's you use the card for 30 days and return it to buy a better card, with a full refund towards the newer card's purchase.

NVIDA cards enjoy better driver support for differing operating systems too.

Really good to hear you say Here there is no lifetime warranty This provides a two-year warranty Asus Gigabyte MSI warranty of three years You can also use 30 days for better It seems there is difference!  We work good graphics card prices and relatively high  

In China Less self-developed graphics motherboard manufacturers Many of which are Taiwan OEM Paste their own brand sales Quality and after-sales did you EVGA Big Smile

Your work, what is it?  Also like computer hardware? Can add you msn chat with me?

Google translate is all I have that works.

I do not do MSN chat,....sorry.

As long as the local knock-off companies build a good board, then it's a good thing.

I have PNY, XFX, and ASUS GPU's here now. I am saving for a pair of EVGA GTX-660Ti cards now.

The two XFX cards are Radeon 7770s and they are in Crossfire. The ASUS and PNY cards are both GTX-570s and are in SLI.
