Despite the fact that Nvidia launched two top-end graphics cards at the end of May (GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770), we do not expect anything new from the company in the mainstream market sector until the end of the year. So it is the updated GeForce GTX 650 Ti in its Boost modification that seems to be the most interesting product that has been released recently in the price range of $150-170. It features a faster GPU, a 192-bit memory bus and increased clock rates. For this review we’ve collected as many as six off-the-shelf versions of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost along with a reference sample from Nvidia. We'll check out their distinguishing features, their cooling systems and overclocking potential. Besides, we will benchmark a 2-way SLI tandem built of two GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost cards in comparison with the GeForce GTX 680.
