In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Palit 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 17.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. 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 Ti has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 72 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 37 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 590, and so the GTX 650 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 590.

The GTX 590 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 590 has 211.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 590 is massively better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Palit 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 590 is 1290 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 793. The GTX 590 having 497 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 590 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 590. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 590.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition requires 365 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Palit 1GB Edition requires 134 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX 590 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 650 Ti. The GTX 590 requires 231 Watts more than the GTX 650 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 590 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper is a special edition of the dual-graphics solution GeForce GTX 590.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that went from 608MHz to 630MHz and in the operating memory clock, which is now of 864MHz. Furthermore, it features a new cooling system which keeps the card cool under load.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference card and so it proves to be faster than GeForce GTX 680.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Palit 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition (not to be confused with the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti).
This edition comes with a 1GB frame buffer, instead of 2GB and its operating memory clock is of only 1253MHz, instead of 1502MHz.
Thus, the card offers less resilience against image improving techniques and will pale in comparison to the 2GB version in higher resolutions.
