Apart from the GeForce GTX 660, NVIDIA also announced the mid-range GeForce GTX 650, targeting a sub-$150 price-point. Based on the same GK107 silicon as the GeForce GT 640, the card takes advantage of faster GDDR5 memory and higher clock speeds. It is otherwise identical to the GT 640, even to the extant of using the same reference PCB design (with the minor addition of a 6-pin power connector). The GTX 650 is designed to make the latest games playable at resolutions of up to 1366 x 768, with details cranked up. It packs 384 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. It ships with clock speeds of 1058 MHz core, and 5.00 GHz memory. 1 GB of memory comes standard. The GeForce GTX 650 starts at $109.
