Gigabyte is working on a premium GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics card that doubles the memory amount, packs factory-overclocked speeds, and better cooling over NVIDIA reference design, for a relatively small premium. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2 GB WindForce OC graphics card was listed on Spanish online retailer PC Componentes for €169, which the source claims to be a €24 premium over the baseline for GTX 650 Ti. Gigabyte's card features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface (compared to 1 GB), features clock speeds of 1032 MHz core (compared to 925 MHz core reference), and Gigabyte's own paraphernalia, including Ultra Durable VGA PCB and WindForce 2X cooling solution.

I suppose we could wait for a reviews... but I seriously doubt that Gigabyte will push to provide any cards.

I’ll predicate if it can overclocked to say 1280Mhz stable (39% over referance), you could get it to spar with any 7770. Right now even a Gigabyte OC 7770 is $110 -AR$10 w/FS... that's what it's been or lower and I don't see that as taking into account AMD recent pricing adjustment. Although, this with a Windforce is nicer, is it really necessary, a GK106 shouldn't need all that cooling? It would appear to me like they’re polishing a turd, with that cooler and the added 1Gb memory?
To me they just want it to appear to be something it’s not so they can price it at $130.

I thought the stock 650Ti model was going to be $150. This would be like $170, yeah?
