In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 171 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 11 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 171 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 10.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. 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 560 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 41.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is noticeably better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 763. The GTX 650 Ti having 132 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560 Ti, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB.
While 2GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 2GB are needed, such as gaming at 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.

Cooling Solution

Benchmarks Indicate b>no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This edition features a new and better cooling system called Cyclone II Thermal Design with Dust Removal technology and an increase in the central clock that went from 928MHz to 993MHz. The Memory clock was left untouched.
The overclocking is relevant and benchmarks indicate there's a 4% boost when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
