Introduction



Last week, NVIDIA released their GeForce GTX 650. The card is based on the same GK107 graphics processor that we have seen on the low-end GeForce GT 640 before. The GK107 GPU is using a scaled down Kepler architecture design with just 16 ROPs and 384 shaders. It is positioned above the $100 mark, which clearly makes it an entry-level solution.



MSI has built a custom design GTX 650, which comes with an overclock out of the box and an improved thermal solution. A special feature is the ability to add an included extra fan if you think you need more cooling potential. With a price of $130, the MSI GTX 650 Power Edition OC is $20 higher than the NVIDIA GTX 650 reference design, which is quite a large increase. We will see if it is justified.
