    Colorful announces the world's first single slot GeForce GTX650Ti, which is named iGame GTX650Ti 1G Buri-Slim. Colorful firstly used the single slot design on iGame GTS450 1G Buri-Slim, which was released on the early time of 2011. And we could also find some similar design ideas on this iGame GTX650Ti Buri-Slim.

    No ordinary solid capacitors are used on this card, but only high-C POSCAP capacitors, and with the high efficient ON-SEMI MOSFET, it has 3+1 phases of VRM. The chokes are installed through the PCB, they are based on penetrated design, so it could maximum improve the thermal performance of the card.

    The heat-sink is made up by a copper base, aluminum fins and a turbofan. The shell of the heat-sink is made of Aluminum, which looks stylish and helpful for the heat radiation. The iGame GTX650Ti Buri-Slim is set the core clock for 928 MHz and memory clock for 5400 MHz. It has two of EMI-shield Dual-link DVI ports and one mini-HDMI port.

    I think that PR blurb needs some spelling and grammar checking.



    Single-slot card? Meh. Wake me up when it's a Low Profile card.

    Would be waste of money, time, resources, etc. since GTX 650 Ti does NOT support SLI.

    I stand corrected.
    I noticed the cooler had that area uncovered, but didn't recall that detail.

    What?
    No RAM or VRM heat pipes sticking out the sides?

    GREAT to see 2x DVI on a 650Ti card. I think that is a first. But HDMI stinks. Should have been DP.

    technically its dual but it only takes 1 slot a true dual slot is what it is, dual slot prongs

    officially it would be 1.5 slot since 2 slot cards with fans extending to a 3rd is 2.5

    I know it's just a PR, but :roll:

    Also, if adding a card in the next slot is either not physically possible or excessively affects the cooling of the first card, it's generally not considered to be a single slot cooler.

    What's the point in single-slot cooling systems anyway?

    No, sir. You sit corrected — unless you're standing in front of your computer, of course.

    So that multi-card setups can breathe. Or to be able to use the remaining slots, in the motherboard, usually covered by the card.
    Gah! You got me. :p
    Alas...the card does not support SLI. But you can use the PCI connector below it.
