In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB are marginally better than the AMD FireStream 9370.

The GTX 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the FireStream 9370, 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 FireStream 9370.

The FireStream 9370 has 2048 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 FireStream 9370 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FireStream 9370 has 67.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the FireStream 9370 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the FireStream 9370 has 1600. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 753 and the actual shader performance of the FireStream 9370 is 858. The FireStream 9370 having 105 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FireStream 9370 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB requires 150 Watts to run and the FireStream 9370 requires 225 Watts. The FireStream 9370 requires 75 Watts more than the GTX 650 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the FireStream 9370 may have an 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.
The FireStream 9370 offers maximum GPU performance with 4GB of DDR5 memory in a 2-slot configuration. The FireStream 9350 offers maximum performance / slot with 2GB DDR5 memory in a 1-slot configuration. Both boards are passively cooled and include a single Display Port output. (For workstation installations that require active cooling of the GPU, AMD’s ATI FirePro™ professional graphics boards are software compatible and offer comparable features.)
