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 Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti MSI OC 1GB Edition.

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 1.6 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 MSI OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB 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. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 650 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti MSI OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB are the same, which means the GTX 650 Ti and the GTX 650 Ti have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Ti MSI OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB 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 1.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 0.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 650 Ti takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Ti MSI OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This GFX has its central unit overclocked out of the box from 928MHz to 954MHz while the memory clock was left untouched. A new cooling system with propeller Blade Technology generates 20% more airflow than traditional fan design, according to MSI, is also featured.
Benchmarks indicate a 1,5% performance boost, when compared to the reference card.
GeForce 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.
