In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 has a 210 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 22.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 650. 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 210 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 11 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the GTX 650 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 Ti has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is noticeably better than the GTX 650.

Both the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and by the GTX 650 is 691. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GTX 650 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the GTX 650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

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 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is one of the many special editions of GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include a new cooling system and an increase in the core-clock from 822MHz to 900MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is around 5% better than the standard edition.
