    8.3 is too high for what this card offers.

    W1zzard, you kind of bashed the extra fan in the review summary, but we all know your eyes lit up with excitement at getting to play with a new toy, like a kiddie on christmas.

    The HD 7770 is a far better choice at this price point.

    the score is considerably higher than the other gtx 650 today because of the superior power and noise, which are both really good.

    and yes, price is bad

    The power consumption is quite nice, but for price/performance, not that cool. I guess it's only super good for HTPC, to have some gaming power in the case of..

    I dont know why manufacturers are ignoring this particular segment.. really expected lot more from the 650.. and in my country this thing sells for ~$200.. and at that price i can get a 6870 or a 560.. which are almost twice as fast.. dont see any point why people will buy this.

    Looking back on the original 7770's reviews I would say this 8.3 is generous. Other than making up efficiency over a GF116 (550Ti) whoopee… still doesn’t raise the bar at 1680x even the 550Ti (which was adequate over a 5770) still matches or exceeds even this OC’d piece. Heck if you want Nvidia to have your money, for this I’m happy for you.

    AMD has had the folks in this particular segment cover for what the last 7 months... I’d reward them!

    Wow...(YAWN)....More disappointing than I anticipated. And that price needs to change ASAP.

    Too expensive like 660, but >550ti gaming performance with 45W-ish power consumption is really great. Kepler is awesome indeed:)

    The "the most efficient card ever tested." part surely means something, or not?

    Was not sarcasm, but I meant no offense:) IGPs are still slow in my opinion, and low end cards still have purpose. Things might (and will) change pretty soon, but you still need a discrete GPU if you want an enjoyable experience while working with computers or for casual gaming. 45W is really really great for this kind of performance, and I honestly hope that somebody (Zotac for example) will puts it on an itx motherboard.
