In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 343 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 470. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 27.2 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 343 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 470, but the GTX 470 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 470 exhibits a 10.1 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 470, 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 470.

The GTX 470 has 256 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 470 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 470 has 49.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 470 is noticeably better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 470 is 582 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 763. The GTX 650 Ti having 181 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 470 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 470. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 470.

The GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition requires 215 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 470.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 470.
This edition comes with a dual-fan custom solution and overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 607MHz to 650MHz, while the operating memory clock is now of 850MHz, instead of 837MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
GeForce 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.
