In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 285 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 345 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 285. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 650 Ti manages to provide 11.8 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 345 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 285, but the GeForce GTX 285 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GeForce GTX 285 exhibits a 4.8 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 three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 285, and so the GTX 650 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 285 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB and the GeForce GTX 285 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 285 has 72.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 285 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 285 has 240. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 763 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 285 is 358. The GTX 650 Ti having 405 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GTX 285 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 285. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 285. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 650 Ti should consume less power than the GeForce GTX 285.

The GeForce GTX 285 requires 204 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 285, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 650 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 285 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed G200-350-B3 which has 10 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 240 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 648MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 512-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1242MHz.

DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 204W, it requires at least a 550W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above the lower positioned GeForce GTX 280.
It is therefore even faster than the Fermi based GeForce GTX 460 1GB.
