In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the Intel HD i7 3770K.

The GTX 650 has a 460 MHz higher core clock speed and 28 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3770K. This results in the GTX 650 providing 32.9 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 460 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 3770K. This results in the GTX 650 providing 15.2 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 was released less than a year after the HD i7 3770K, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 650 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3770K has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770K is 74 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426. The GTX 650 having 352 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3770K.

The HD i7 3770K transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 650. This means that the HD i7 3770K is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 650.

The HD i7 3770K requires 77 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770K and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650. The GTX 650 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the HD i7 3770K. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 650 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i7 3770K.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 3770K is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop that is Integrated in the Core i7-3770K Processor.

GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 650MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Frame Buffer: Up to 1.7GB.

Memory Channel: 64-bit Or 128-bit.

Memory Clock: Up to 800MHz.

Memory Bandwidth: It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
Gaming Benchmarks Indicate its Performance is Similar to of a Dedicated GeForce GT 620.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 3770K.
GeForce 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.
