    Here are the first pictures of an MSI-branded GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics card. The card features MSI's Gaming Series branding, a custom board design with Twin Frozr III cooling solution, and what could be a non-reference design PCB. As details emerge, the GTX 650 Ti Boost is turning out to be more of a competitor for AMD's Radeon HD 7850 than its recently launched HD 7790. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, it reportedly features 768 CUDA cores, a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface holding 2 GB of memory (memory size printed on MSI's box), GPU Boost, core clock speeds in the neighborhood of 1030 MHz; and 6.00 GHz memory (144 GB/s). It is expected to come out a little later this month.

    They finally decided to widen the memory bus since I'm guessing that's the bottleneck in the original GTX 650ti

    Like all Nvidia cards, it will be overpriced for the segment it's supposed to occupy.

    If this is supposed to be a competitor to the 7790, in the UK, it 'should' be £120, but I'm willing to bet you wont get it for less than £150.

    Even more than that, if they try and pull a fast one and say its a new rival to the 2GB 7850.

    Well if they do go for that approach they'll leave the $150 segment right open to amd but I doubt that'll happen.

    well the 650ti is based on a chip that's the size of Pitcairn at 212mm2 or so(gk106)
    So whatever they do here amd will be making more or equal margin to amds Bonaire, if anything this boost version is only to prevent competition from pushing prices of 650ti below 150 since at the current performance of Bonaire that's obviously the case
    And whatever it is I hardly see this touching the 7850 as that card has so much overclock headroom its not even funny, so amd has alot to play there as well

    Could we please get a non-boost variant of GTX 670. They could name it GTX 670 SE.

    It's trivial to edit the boost table and flat line it if you want.
