Colorful Announces GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost iGame

Possibly the most well-equipped GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, Colorful's iGame graphics card combines the mid-range GPU, otherwise meant for 1080p gaming on a shoestring budget, with its signature paraphernalia. To begin with, the company cools the 140W TDP chip with its most powerful iGame VGA cooler, which uses a combination of three aluminum fin stacks, to which heat from the GPU is fed by five 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes; and which are ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans. Since the card has memory chips on both sides, Colorful dropped in a brushed aluminum back-plate as well.

Colorful's iGame GTX 650 Ti Boost uses a custom-design PCB, with a 4+1 phase VRM, and hand-binned Hynix-made memory chips for high memory overclock. The PCB features two independent EEPROM chips, giving you dual-BIOS support. It ships with a failsafe BIOS that falls back to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory; while a factory-OC "Turbo" BIOS ups the GPU Boost to 1058 MHz. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors, to ensure your overclock doesn't fall short of power; display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. Colorful didn't announce price, but plans to launch the card in the Greater China region, and the EU. Another "go big or go home" product from Colorful.

Their products do look nice, but really this on a 650 Ti Boost... And should have gone with a single 8pin and not 2 6pin's, also the backplate should say 650Ti not just GTX 600.

Colorful are well-known for being ridicules with their products. How do i know that? from TPU. If they were not ridicules they weren't on TPU becuase probably 95% of people here can't even get one in their area.

If graphics card makers were gourmet chefs, Colorful would be Epic Meal Time.

Product differentiation?

Maybe because it's difficult to attach 2 PCI-E power connectors with those funny heatsink blocking your cable's way.

This seems a well performing product especially with cooling, this is way better than stock heatsink.

Giving to the product lifespan and reliability.

That cooler really just looks like a big mess of heatpipes thrown together without too much thought.
