Colorful's kicked off its GeForce GTX 650 Ti lineup with the iGame GTX 650 Ti. Based on a custom board design, Colorful's card makes use of the iGame AresX cooling solution. The cooler consists of a dense aluminum fin stack to which heat from the GPU is fed by two 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. Ventilation is care of a single 90 mm fan. Another innovative feature is that all electrical contacts on the PCB are silver-plated. The PCB features dual-BIOS, and a factory-overclocked profile can be set at the push of a button. Among the two profiles, one sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds (925/5400 MHz core/memory), while the OC profile could up core clock speed by 7-10%. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti packs 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide memory interface. Colorful could begin shipping its card in the Greater China region first, before moving on to Europe.
