ASUS has equipped their GTX 650 Ti Boost with a silent Direct CU II cooler and a small GPU overclock out of the box. They also changed the voltage regulation circuity, which results in a 5% efficiency improvement. Pricing is up by a reasonable $10, resulting in a price of $179.

Crysis 3, please :). Very High + (at least) FXAA, for single digit framerates on midrange cards :D. Other sites test C3 on Medium :shadedshu

From W1zzard :rockout:

also new will be Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider, and all cards will use the latest drivers. Starting rebench on NVIDIA next week and AMD as soon as their WHQL is released. The rebenching process will take about two weeks of non-stop testing.

I need to ask this to be positive... When you OC Nvidia Boost cards it cancels the dynamic clock profiles, and means the card is set to run at that Mhz, except at idle at desktop correct?

And is that the same with the AMD’s new 7790 dynamic clock algorithms? If you OC, it basically negates 8 power states. I only ask that because the one slide for the 7790 said, "Effective Clock" dispayed in overclock tools.

Riddle me this... Newegg has the Asus GTX660 Direct Cu II 2 GB for $170 after a Code and $20 Rebate, while TigerD has a EVGA GTX660SC for $184 and only a -AR$10? So much for thinking these Boost models would shore up the GTX660 prices! I mean sure if these where reference cards I could see it, but not those that are fully armed... This Green team marketing must be run by a guy in a green suite and a derby hat with a ? on it! :slap:

Lucky for those that have access to Newegg I guess. :p

The 7790 could already do with a price drop. Hehe.

Egg it's already happening several 7790's are $140 -AR, and even $150 for a Asus HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 Dual Fan with 1075Mhz Boost and that without a rebate.
Probably where it should be before rebates.

No reviews yet oddly.

I think this is the first time I've seen Nvidia at the top of the perf/$ chart, maybe the gtx 460 was up there, don't remember.

Nope boost is over the base clock you set.

The Newegg reviews are already rolling in, the card is selling baby! :toast:
LOL @ newegg reviews. Seriously. Most cant tell their... youknowwhat, from a hole in the ground and newegg is letting those people do reviews... USELESS. Utterly USELESS newegg. You took something that has no meaning anyway in your reviews (ok except DOA) and made it even more useless.

Its the blind leading the blind in newegg reviews. :slap:

That's swell, but not really the point i was making, merely correcting the misplaced view that these wouldn't sell due to their pricing relative to whatever deal/rebate Newegg has available at any given time. That obviously isn't the case.

Nice rant though. ;)

LOL, its just the truth. DOA's are about all they are good for otherwise, you tend to have muppets that dont know anything saying its broke or isnt compatible etc when its really not what they say it is. Dont worry, in time you will agree. LOL!

Thanks for the review @W1zzard
I am looking to purchase this card. I have a few questions though

The GTX570 seems to outperform this card in some tests, is that a better buy?
I have a 800W PSU, will that be enough for this card?

Thank you sir.

Thanks for the quick reply @W1zzard
For the price and my budget, I think this is the best option.

Thanks once again.
