NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, its "wild card" for the sub-$200 market. Based on the same GK106 silicon as the original GTX 650 Ti and GTX 660, the card acts as an in-between, featuring the CUDA core and TMU count of the GTX 650 Ti, but the memory bus width and ROP count of the GTX 660. It features 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 24 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. As its name suggests, the card features GPU Boost. The core is clocked at 980 MHz, which can dynamically overclock itself to 1033 MHz. The memory runs at 6.00 GHz, churning out 144 GB/s memory bandwidth. NVIDIA is looking to disturb AMD's pack in this segment with an aggressive MSRP of $169.99, a 1 GB variant priced at $149.99 is also on the cards. Check out our review here.
