    which would get ZERO noticeable difference in gaming.

    TPU tests games at max settings

    Toms hardware tested that GPU at low settings,

    simple a case of reading the graph and review.

    1920x1080 high / max settings overall performance avg

    Tom's tests at 1080p on low, whereas the other chart is for tests at high / max settings.

    So I think they are both correct, but Tom's chart is less of an accurate measurement of pure video card performance, whereas the other chart reflects that more accurately.

    So it would seem that the 550ti and the 650 are actually really equal. Which makes a lot of sense given nV's history of inter-generation performance differentials.

    EDIT: Oh, and nice edit, Crazyeyes, putting the content of my post into yours after the fact! :D

    TPU chart is more accurate because more games are tested.

    Both Companies have taken prev Gen boards and rebagged them to meet the lower market demand, plus get rid of old stock.

    Example would be the 5770-6770 conundrum.

    Ah, well that explains that!

    However, what of the fairly large difference on Tom's chart? That's a bit weird for what would be essentially a rebadge, IMO.

    The GTX550 to GTX650 was not a rehash, rebrand, rebadge or re-anything in that matter, its a different board and gpu

    X2 he posted WAY before you did and also if he edited his post it would have an edit time LIKE your post does.

    I never said it was, it's edairaman who did... I did raise the question, though.

    If you're considering purchasing one of these cards, just get the less expensive card. The performance difference between the two aren't worth the argument/conversation.

    a 650 is not a re-badge... see
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_600_Series

    it is closer to the oem gt640 with ddr5 memory.

    i have the gt640 2GB gigabyte , and a tested the gtx650 on 3dmark11, and 3dmark06 on my system (see system specs... 4GHZ, 88824 8GB 1600 ddr3)

    the gigabyte 2GB (1040/900ddr3) on
    3dmark06 gets 14291 (www.3dmark.com/3dm06/16841337)
    3dmark11 gets P2521 (www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4199555)
    the msi power edition (the one reviewed on techpowerup) gtx650 (1124/1250ddr5) on
    3dmark06 gets 18470 (www.3dmark.com/3dm06/16888382)
    3dmark11 gets p3314 (www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4426373)

    the difference is 30% on 3dmark06, and 31% on 3dmark11...
    of course the 650 is about 30% more expensive (but i bought the 640 at 105, and have seen the 650 at 115 after rebate... i bought and returned the gtx650 at 130..)

    the gt640 seemed "snappier" on the desktop than the gtx650... odd yes.

    will be looking at the gtx660... (not the gtx650)
