ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Destroyer TSI Graphics Card Unveiled

ZOTAC unveiled a new bells and whistles-laden GeForce GTX 650 graphics card in the Greater China region, the GTX 650 Destroyer TSI (twin, silent, intelligent). The card combines a custom-design PCB with a sporty high-performance cooling solution. The PCB packs a strong (relative to this GPU) 3+1 phase VRM to power the factory-overclocked GPU.

The GPU is clocked at 1071 MHz, and the memory at 5.00 GHz. The card packs 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. It relies on a 6-pin PCIe connector for power. Display outputs include two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. Moving on, the TSI cooling solution appears use a large monolithic aluminum heatsink ventilated by a pair of 70 mm fans, and a sporty cooler shroud that keeps up with the color scheme of its Extreme Edition cousins, which lends it a high-end feel. Pricing and availability is under the wraps, although this one is most likely meant only for Greater China.

Twin Frozr uses a heatpipe-fed fin-stack. This one uses a heatsink milled out of a single block of aluminum.

I'd say a tad overkill using such cooling on a entry level card.
Hell, the 650 barely heats up even on stock cooling.

How would you name it then? They aim to sell those things.
I'd call it the Seximassage Deluxe Powercoconut

hmm seems way overkill for a 650 as said above. At least it looks nice and more beastly than a normal 650.

I wonder if Volkswagen will start a court case against Zotac for the use of 'TSI' in the product name. Even though this product has absolutely no bearing on the car at all.

I very much doubt it. The replication of names in different product areas is very common.

Look it looks like MSI's twin Frozr..... Plus what s the point anyway? Nvidia made it very clear all the these highend components are useless. Nvidia already stated they won't let anyone overvolt.

I actually like the name. You know, when your car is not fast enough, some people put a lot of bling to it (that is, if have to choose performance vs looks). So Zotac said, let's call it Destroyer- you expect some space-ship card with the looks of Sapphire 6950 Toxic edition. :D

Nice... I like how you left the original specs with the strike-through so we can see the difference easier.

If you have a low to mid resolution monitor this card is perfectly fine.

This is only going to confuse shelf buyers about TSI vs a real TI.
