Nvidia GTX 650 Ti is decent overclocker

Expect factory OCed cards to go well over 1GHz


We have been told that the GTX 650 Ti is quite an overclocker and at least some, if not all, partners will release a factory overclocked graphics card based on this GPU.

According to our sources, the new GTX 650 Ti graphics card will easily go well over 1000MHz for the GPU. The new GTX 650 Ti might lack the GPU Boost feature but at least it will be able to get a decent factory overclock.

As we wrote earlier, the GTX 650 Ti is based on the 28nm GK106 GPU and features 768 CUDA cores. It will be available in both 1 and 2GB versions but the precise price still remains a mystery. According to early reviews, it ends up a bit slower than the HD 7850, at least on its reference 928MHz GPU clock.

The factory overclocked cards might tip the scales into GTX 650 Ti favor, but these cards also end up more expensive, so we will leave the final judgement when we see some official reviews tomorrow. For now, it looks like Nvidia will have a hard time to sell this graphics card, especially with AMD's recently promised price cuts.
