Check out these quotes from NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti reviews & previews
"Initially, I was disappointed that GeForce GTX 650 Ti lacked NVIDIA GPU Boost and SLI support. But then it occurred to me that overclocking would be as easy as it used to be, and most users aren't going to buy two of these cards for SLI in the first place with so many other choices available. For what it is, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti performs very well. Our benchmark tests confirmed that GTX 650 Ti can play games like BF3 at 1920x1080 with Ultra quality settings and still get good frame rates. For mainstream gamers who want to step up from aging hot-running graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is a value-packed option to consider."
"Overall, the card offers exactly what it was set out to offer, and thats fantastic value for money and anyone wanting to play games on medium settings won’t be disappointed, though we wouldn’t recommend harnessing the higher-end technologies such as higher resolutions and namely Nvidia Surround as it will struggle slightly and a GTX 670 and upwards would be much better suited for this task, though for productivity, this card will run 3 screens all day, absolutely fine. What Nvidia partners continue to do with this card now is exactly what we hoped for, by increasing the clocks and raising the cooling performance and this will all help to make this card an extreme overclocker."
"All in all the GTX 650 Ti is a blast. At the $149 price point if offers up a level of performance that will allow the user on a budget to move up from hardware as new as last year's Fermi-based GTX 550 Ti and see a performance boost of around 1.5x. When compared to even older cards such as the 9600GT the performance bump can reach as high as five times. Even with the recent price drops from AMD, the GTX 650 Ti is going to provide great value. It fills out the low end of the Kepler product stack impressively and is priced competitively."
"This is another tough one - these graphics card releases that are almost always easy to decipher and make recommendations around at the high end but become pretty cluttered in the sub-$200 markets as the crowds increase. The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti from NVIDIA struggles to find a comfortable place in our performance and pricing schemes at $149 between the HD 7770 and the HD 7850 1GB. Looking at only the cards themselves, the Radeon HD 7850 1GB at $179 makes a better a case for mainstream gaming selection than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. Adding in the Assassins Creed 3 deal and you definitely perk up the appearance of the GTX 650 Ti without a doubt, but only if you find that title appealing.
If we do see prices drop upon release or in the next couple of days to something like $130, I would have no issues recommending the GTX 650 Ti. And let's not forget that overclocked GTX 650 Ti from EVGA sitting here - will pushing those clocks up change the performance picture? More soon!"
