    In addition to the WindForce 2X-cooled GeForce GTX 660, Gigabyte also unveiled one based on the cheaper GeForce GTX 650 (model: GV-N650WF2-1GI). The cooler, which is near-overkill for the GK107 chip, facilitates a mild overclock of 1110 MHz core (over 1058 MHz reference), while leaving the memory clock untouched, at 5.00 GHz. It uses two copper heat pipes to cool a large aluminum fin array, which is ventilated by two 90 mm PWM-controlled fans. It features 384 CUDA cores, and a 128-bit wide memory interface, which holds 1 GB of GDDR5 memory. Expect the card to be priced in the neighborhood of $120.

    Why two fans? I played with the evga 650ti and it had a single fan and super small heatsink and I could not get it above 60c.

    In good old days that said you can squeeze every bit of juice outta the GPU. These days it means it will run fine on maximum, pathetic, possible overclocking.
