NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 650 sales 27 November 2013 at a recommended price of $109. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 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 2-slot 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 13.34 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
