Here are some of the first press-shots of ASUS, ZOTAC, and Point of View custom-design GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics cards, slated for launch a little later today. ASUS decided to arm its GTX 650 Ti with a dual-fan cooling solution (first revealed here). It is a simpler version of DirectCU II, except that it replaces a heat-pipe fed aluminum fin stack design with a monolithic aluminum heatsink. The card packs 1 GB of memory. Moving on, the Point of View TGT Tuning combine dished out an UltraCharged graphics card that ships with 10-15% factory OC, a compact PCB, and Arctic Cooling L2 GPU cooler. Lastly, there's ZOTAC and its GTX 650 Ti base-model, which uses a compact PCB much like Point of View, with a simple fan-heatsink that has spirally-projecting aluminum fins.

hmm the double fansink on the Asus card seems a bit overkill on a 650Ti when nearly all the other 650Ti's from other companies only have one a single fan which also makes the card have a smaller length.

At least the 650Ti 'looks' more expensive than the other because of its larger design.

I wonder how well these will fair with the recent large price drop on AMD's 7770 and 7850 1gb/2gb.

And the bigger chunk of Aluminium on the heatsink, the extra fan and larger than 'reference' PCB. Liking it's port layout too, not keen on mini HDMI. It confuses the type of people a card at this price point is aimed at.

I can see a lot of these cards selling at some computer repair store where families come to who bought a pre-built media center desktop with weak graphics being told they will be able to play anything on it.

Casual "family" gamers are usually completely satisfied by the performance of these cards, it's surprising, but it's very very rare when they notice (let alone appreciate) the difference between 30 and 60fps in a game (including first person shooters where it would really matter).

We (enthusiasts) are the minority:toast:
