Mainstream graphics cards priced at $100 to $200 are known to enjoy the highest demand among users. Represented in the current generation by such models as AMD’s Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870 and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 660 and 660 Ti, they support all cutting-edge technologies and can deliver acceptable performance in the latest 3D games. However, not all users need such performance, so they look for cheaper and simpler solutions.
These are AMD’s Radeon HD 7770 and HD 7750 we tested earlier and the recently released Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti. It is about the latter product that we’re going to talk in this review. Besides a reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti, we’ve got three original versions from EVGA, Gigabyte and Zotac. We will also take a look at Zotac’s GeForce GT 640 which is officially positioned as the junior gaming graphics card with an Nvidia GPU.
