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 GTS 450 EVGA SuperClocked 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 46 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTS 450. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 31.2 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 46 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTS 450 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 0.7 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 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTS 450, 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 GTS 450.

The GeForce GTS 450 EVGA SuperClocked 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 650 Ti has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTS 450, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is slightly better than the GTS 450.

The GeForce GTS 450 EVGA SuperClocked 1GB Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTS 450 is 339 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713. The GTX 650 Ti having 374 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 GTS 450.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTS 450. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTS 450.

The GeForce GTS 450 EVGA SuperClocked 1GB Edition requires 107 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 400 Watts for the GTS 450.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTS 450 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's fast-middle-class GeForce GTS 450, created by EVGA.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 882MHz, instead of 783MHz while the Operating Memory Clock was increased to 950MHz.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System was replaced by EVGA's Single Fan Solution which means the Graphics Card runs cooler under load.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 10% performance boost over the reference GeForce GTS 450.
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.
