In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 2GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 163 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 10.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 163 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 10.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the GTX 650 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560 Ti.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 41.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is noticeably better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 763 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 637. The GTX 650 Ti having 126 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This edition features a new and better cooling system called Cyclone II Thermal Design with Dust Removal technology and an increase in the central clock that went from 928MHz to 993MHz. The Memory clock was left untouched.
The overclocking is relevant and benchmarks indicate there's a 4% boost when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 2GB is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 560 Ti. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include a very small increase in the core-clock that went from 822MHz to 830MHz, double amount of video memory and a new cooling system. Consumers will want to buy the TOP edition for extra performance.
Benchmarks indicate a 1.5% performance gain when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
