MSI Announces Cyclone II-cooled GeForce GTX 650 Ti

MSI launched its GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics card lineup, which includes the factory-overclocked GTX 650 Ti Power Edition. The card sees the comeback of MSI's iconic Cyclone II cooler design, which has been the company's workhorse cooler for performance-segment graphics cards. The GTX 650 Ti Power Edition features factory-overclocked speeds of 993 MHz core and 5.40 GHz memory (against NVIDIA reference speeds of 925/5400 MHz). It features an custom design PCB with 4+2 phase VRM. MSI could charge a relatively small $15 premium over the $150 baseline for its GTX 650 Ti Power Edition. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti packs 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide memory interface.

Bad mistake MSI. At least one of your GTX 650Ti's should have been short PCB design like other manufacturers.

Have they improved the cooler? It just looks like nameplates over the fins of the heatsink, which I suspect won't supplement cooling, and while I don't think it will impede it much, I bet it does some. Weird.
