In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 2GB.

The GTX 750 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 650. This results in the GTX 750 providing 0.8 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 750 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 providing 0.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 650.

The GTX 650 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 750 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 750 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 is marginally better than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 406. The GTX 750 having 398 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 2GB requires 64 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650. The GTX 650 requires 9 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 650 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
GeForce GTX 650 2GB is a fast-middle-class GPU part of the 600 Series released by NVIDIA in 2012.
This version features a frame buffer of 2GB. It's known that this GPU does not benefit in any way from a 2GB frame buffer and so this GPU's performance is on level with the 1GB variant. Check the page of the 1GB version for more information about but please note this GPU is just a fast GT 640, paired with GDDR5. Its performance is nothing like next in series - GeForce GTX 650 Ti and barely any fast than previous GTX 550 Ti.
