In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 40 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 21.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 40 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 0.6 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 750 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650 Ti, and so the GTX 750 Ti 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 GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB are the same, which means the GTX 750 Ti and the GTX 650 Ti have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II OC 2GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 937 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 753. The GTX 750 Ti having 184 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 Ti delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition requires 60 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 750 Ti. The GTX 650 Ti requires 90 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti 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 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GT 750 Ti, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling Solution, meaning the Graphics Card is silent under load.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GTX 750 Ti MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 750 Ti.
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.
