In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 65.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 650. 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 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 15.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 760 was released less than a year after the GTX 650, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 760 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 650, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 110.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is massively better than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition has 1152 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1325 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 467. The GTX 760 having 858 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 650. The GTX 760 requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 650 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 760 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom dual-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1085MHz while its boost clock is now of 1150MHz. The memory clock was left untouched. Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX 670.
GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes with a custom cooling solution called DirectCU, which operates 20% cooler and is much quieter, according to ASUS, and overclocking out of the box in both central unit and operating memory clock to 1215MHz and 1275MHz, respectively.
Benchmarks indicate a 10% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
