How well can the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 242 games in todays list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI can run FIFA 22 at 1080p and saw it return good frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 157 FPS, Medium: 124 FPS, High: 83 FPS and Ultra: 60 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Back 4 Blood returns a playable 36 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up FIFA 22 to see how the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI dealt with it. It scored up a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 120 FPS, Medium: 94 FPS, High: 64 FPS and Ultra: 45 FPS. Next we looked at Back 4 Blood which was playable with a 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Grand Theft Auto VI that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI running at 1440p is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 50% better and can meet 726 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, as it can run 305 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 20% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI Game Requirement Analysis

NOTE: THE REGULAR GEFORCE GTX 650 TI DOES NOT SUPPORT SLI!!
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI is a combination of two GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition, using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Know that SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and the game itself might not be optimized for this technology. Therefore, this combination's rank is based on an overall performance boost of 2010 to today's modern games.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition SLI offers two Kepler GK106 Cores and thus a total of 1536 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 48 ROPs, on a 384-bit of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 980MHz and goes up to 1033MHz in Turbo Mode. This combination is expected to consume up to 268 Watt, though the average power consumption, under load, should be lower.
Due do its similarities to a single GeForce GTX 680, it's expected to offer better performance than it. However, remember the SLI problems.
Overall, this combination performs slightly better than a single GeForce GTX 680, costs less, but consumes more power.
