In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost MSI Twin Frozr OC 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition .

The GTX 650 Ti has a 301 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 19.3 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 Ti has a 301 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 560 Ti. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 650 Ti manages to provide 1.4 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 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, 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 560 Ti.

The GTX 650 Ti has 768 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 650 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 650 Ti has 22.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is slightly better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost MSI Twin Frozr OC 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 843 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The GTX 650 Ti having 187 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 Ti delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 650 Ti should consume less power than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost MSI Twin Frozr OC 2GB Edition requires 140 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 650 Ti and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 70 Watts more than the GTX 650 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost MSI Twin Frozr OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1033MHz, instead of 980MHz and goes up to 1098MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock still runs at 1502MHz and the Frame Buffer remains the same: 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Twin Frozr III Thermal Design which generates 20% more airflow than traditional fan design.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
