In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Palit 1GB OC Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 650 Ti. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 1.7 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 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 0.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Palit 1GB OC Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GTX 650 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. However, overall, the GTX 650 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 650 Ti has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 650 Ti.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Palit 1GB OC Edition have 768 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 650 Ti has 1.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Palit 1GB OC Edition requires 100 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650 Ti, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 650 Ti. The GTX 650 Ti requires 50 Watts more than the GTX 650 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 650 Ti may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This edition features a new and better cooling system called DirectCU II with that utilizes direct contact copper heatpipes so heat is dissipated efficiently, delivering a 20% cooler and vastly quieter performance than reference according to Asus and an increase in the central clock that went from 928MHz to 980MHz. The Memory clock was left untouched.
This edition performs better than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB because it's higher clocked and not because of the extra video memory.
Benchmarks indicate there's a 2.5% boost when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti. Consumers will want to get the TOP version for superior performance.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Palit 1GB OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
It features overclocking out of the box in both core and memory clocks raised from 928MHz to 1006MHz and from 1350MHz to 1375MHz, respectively though the latter might not give any boost.
Expect a 4~5% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
