Nvidia already had two GTX 650 cards before it decided to roll out the Boost edition. Although the GTX 650 and GTX 650 Ti share the same DNA, they can’t keep up with demanding titles in 1080p. The GTX 650 Ti Boost proves Nvidia was right when it claimed it could deliver a mid-range card capable of comfortable 1080p gaming.
Nvidia originally claimed that the new card should outpace AMD’s Radeon HD 7850 1GB, but it turns out it is a good match for the Radeon HD 7850 2GB, both in terms of price and performance. At the moment you can pick up either of them for about €160. As far as performance goes, the differences are relatively small and the choice really comes down to which games you prefer more than anything else. It is also worth noting that AMD has EOLed HD 7850 1GB cards, but plenty of them will be in stock for a while longer. We are still not sure whether AMD will decide to drop the price of its HD 7850 2GB to counter Nvidia’s new card, but it is something worth considering if you are in the market for a mid-range upgrade.
EVGA’s GTX 650 Ti Boost Superclocked card costs about 10 euro more than the reference card, but it also offers a bit more performance and a much better cooler. It is a sound investment in our book.
