The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST reference specifications call for a base GPU clock of 980MHz with a boost clock of 1033MHz and a memory clock of 1502MHz (6008MHz effective). At those frequencies, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST will offer up to 144.2GB/s of memory bandwidth and 62.7GTexes/s of textured fillrate. Performance-wise, the new card offers playable frame rates in virtually any leading-edge DX11 title on the market currently, for well under $200. NVIDIA is also doing some rejiggering of its price structure, which makes the company’s entire mid-range lineup more affordable."
