NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 650 sales 6 September 2012 at a recommended price of $109. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.0 GB/s are supplied, and together with 128-bit GDDR5 memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-width card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 5.70" (14.5 cm). One 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 64 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.70 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
