ASUS Readies GeForce GTX 650 Ti DualFan

ASUS is working on a new graphics card based on the upcoming GeForce GTX 650 Ti GPU, augmented with a non-reference design cooling solution. ASUS refers to it as "dual-fan," stopping short of calling it "DirectCU II." One can infer that the cooler could look very similar to dual-slot DirectCU II featured on GTX 660 DirectCU II, with the exclusion of direct-contact heat pipes. The new cooler, according to leaked marketing material will be 11% quieter, and run the GPU 14% cooler than NVIDIA reference cooler. The new marketing materials confirm specifications revealed by an older leak. The GPU is clocked at 980 MHz, with 1350 MHz memory (5.40 GHz GDDR5-effective), with 576 CUDA cores, and 1 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide interface. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti is expected to be priced around US $149, and is slated for October 9.

They're GT 650's in my eye. GTX 650 Ti??? really?? load of crap from NV with the GTX and Ti model names for a mid/low end card.

Asus.... How do we make the facade that these worth some money? Slap on a dual fan and hardly run either and tout that it's quite.

There were only a few GTX550 that had dual fans and anything other than extruded aluminum radial cooler an those had like a 116 TDP. Here’s a card that is said to be a 85 TDP and they give it dual fans? I'll bet it that's the same extruded aluminum block cooler found on their HD7770-2GD5 (80 TDP).

At least with that 7770 there might be some OC'n headroom, because if this with an entire GPC gelded is anything like the GTX660 (GK-106 Core) OC'n wasn’t it’s strong suite. I suppose they set clock artificially low just to make it appear like something.

It's 768 CUDA cores and 16 ROPS, not 576. Its GK106 core not 107, which makes me wonder if calling it a 650Ti is really smart as it has virtually nothing to do with the 650.
