Page 2: The Sample in Detail
Even though we won't see the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost in its reference design on the market, we still want to take a look at the card and compare it against the competition and EVGA's first retail representative.
The GPU-Z screenshot confirms the already known features of the reference version of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost.
The same goes for the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked Boost.
In the following table we give a brief overview of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti boost in the reference version and interpretation of EVGA and comparing it to the reference. The focus, however, continue to be on the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked boost.
Comparison with the reference card.

The direct opponent of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost: the AMD Radeon HD 7790 - at least on paper. But the performance data could even suggest that it could be a threat to the new Radeon HD 7870. Considered NVIDIA-own vartiants, the clear differences between the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked Boost and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti can be found in GPU clock and in the memory interface. The jump from 925 to 980 MHz (reference card) and 1072 MHz (EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked Boost) is considerable. Using GPU Boost, the clock goes up to 1033 and 1137 MHz. The beefed-up memory connection will certainly have a positive effect, too. Ultimately, only the benchmarks will show what the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost really is capable of, and how the model from EVGA compares to it.
