In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 (OEM).

The GTX 745 has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 745. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 26.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 745. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 745 has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 745 providing 1.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 745 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650 Ti, and so the GTX 745 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 650 Ti.

The GTX 745 has 3072 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 57.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 745, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is much better than the GTX 745.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 745 is 536 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713. The GTX 650 Ti having 177 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 745.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 745.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 745 is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Variant of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-300-A2 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of DDR3. The central unit runs at 1033MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Good Performance at resolutions up to 1920x1080.
However, even at 1920x1080 GeForce GTX 750 is still considerably faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a considerably strong processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 745.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class.
This edition has no new features and so it performs exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
