Updated GeForce GTX 650 Ti may feature GPU Boost, wider memory bus


The upcoming launch of AMD’s Radeon HD 7790 graphics card has forced NVIDIA to counter the new threat with a faster version of the current GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics card. The first specs have already surfaced – but there’s more to the picture it seems.

The still unnamed future graphics card is now said to feature GPU Boost – a feature that the regular GeForce GTX 650 Ti lacks. Moreover instead of the already reported 128-bit memory bus the card will come with a wider 192-bit memory bus.

While the stream processor count is expected to remain at 768, the card will enjoy increased clock speeds too – the GPU will run at 980 MHz base clock speed and at 1030 MHz in GPU Boost mode, while the on-board GDDR5 memory will operate at 6000 MHz providing 144 GB/sec of bandwidth.

Now the bad news – NVIDIA may keep the same GeForce GTX 650 Ti product name, which may create confusion when the updated card hits the market later this month or sometime in April.
