In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the GTX 650 and the GTX 650 are equal.

The GTX 650 has a 1 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 650. This results in the GTX 650 providing 0.1 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 650 has a 1 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 EX OC 1GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 EX OC 1GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 EX OC 1GB are the same, which means the GTX 650 and the GTX 650 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 EX OC 1GB have 384 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes overclocked out of the box to 1110MHz and features a custom-designed 10 cm cooler.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this GPU is suitable for medium to high settings on most demanding games but not with extreme resolutions.
GeForce GTX 650 EX OC 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes with a custom cooling solution overclocked out of the box to 1111MHz.
Gaming benchmarks indicate the performance is around 4% better when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 1GB and that the most demanding games (Metro 2033, The Witcher II, etc) still require reduced settings while modern demanding games (Battlefield 3, Max Payne 3) are playable at high settings but not paired with extreme resolutions.
