Nvidia GTX 650 Ti Boost to go against HD 7850

Written by Slobodan Simic

At least according to Nvidia

We happened to catch a glimpse at a set of Nvidia made slides that puts its upcoming GTX 650 Ti Boost against AMD's Radeon HD 7850. According to the slides results, it appears that GTX 650 Ti Boost will win in most scenarios.

In case you missed earlier leaks and rumors, the GTX 650 Ti Boost features 768 CUDA cores and works at 980MHz base and 1033MHz Boost clock for the GPU. It will be equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6008MHz and paired up with a 192-bit memory interface. It needs a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector and that a TDP of 140W.

According to Nvidia slides, the GTX 650 Ti Boost is up to 20 percent faster (or 12 percent on average) at 1080p resolution in all Nvidia picked games, including Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, Crysis 3, COD: Black OPS II, Assassin's Creed 3, Skyrim and others. Furthermore, Nvidia claims that GTX 650 Ti Boost should be even better in higher resolution since it is outfitted with a 2GB frame buffer while many competing Radeon HD 7850 cards at its price point come with 1GB of memory.

Although we are still not sure about the precise price of the GTX 650 Ti Boost, some of our sources are suggesting that it should be priced at around US $200. With that in mind, we are not quite sure which stores Nvidia takes into account but a quick check at Newegg.com reveals that you can actually buy the HD 7850 2GB for as little as US $179.99 with a limited rebate from XFX, or for US $184.99 without it. Of course, bear in mind that the HD 7850 also comes with free Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider game coupons which definitely adds a bit more value.

In any case we will know for sure on 26th of March, as that is the current NDA date for the GTX 650 Ti Boost.
