In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 EVGA 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 has a 78 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 28.8 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 78 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 650 providing 1.2 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 650 Ti 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 650 Ti has 1024 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 650 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 650 Ti has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 650 EVGA 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 406 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 753. The GTX 650 Ti having 347 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 Ti delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 650 EVGA 1GB Edition requires 64 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650. The GTX 650 Ti requires 86 Watts more than the GTX 650 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 650 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 EVGA 1GB Edition is a renamed GeForce GTX 650 1GB that has absolutely no new features - same cooling system and no overclocking out of the box and so it performs exactly like 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.
