Gigabyte expanded its GeForce GTX 650 graphics card lineup with two new models featuring its 100 mm fan-heatsink, the GV-N650D5-1GI (1 GB) and GV-N650D5-2GI
(2 GB). The cards feature non-reference design Ultra Durable 2 PCBs, and chunky aluminum heatsinks with copper cores, which are ventilated by 100 mm fans. The card features 1 GB or 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. Based on the 28 nm GK107 GPU, the GeForce GTX 650 features 384 CUDA cores. The card features NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1058 MHz core, with 5.00 GHz memory. It draws power from a 6-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include one each of dual-link DVI, HDMI (gold-plated connector), and D-Sub (VGA). The 1 GB model is expected to be priced around $100, and the 2 GB around $130.

Noice....

While I understand using 92/80mm fans because of their prevalence, I have long been curious why there wasn't coolers out there with 1/2/3x fans that are full-height minus pci-e connector. After-all, the full-height spec is 106mm x up to 311mm. Niche, perhaps, but it's not like full-height cards of varying lengths are a small market and a decent amount of people would surely buy into the largest fan (if the cooler and design of the fan's static pressure could make it feasible) per form-factor for either performance, noise, or both.

I mean Arctic Cooling is a thing, and they've made a decent market off first 80mm then 92mm designs like that for years now.

Yea same here, i have a GTX 650 Ti Gainward GS and i never hear it and the max temp i can push out of it is 70c and that's only because its in a small case.

Same here for the GTX650 why? It's shown to run cool and quiet even with modest over while staying with modest and generic coolers, does it necessarily need bigger fan/cooler? It appear to be the same cooler they already use on their 7770 for some time, so it’s going to have no problem on a card that's rate at 16TDP lower. I would’ve though more for their GTX650Ti unit, though I’d suppose it might not be adequate given those units are deemed 110W TDP, verse 7770’s at 80W TDP.

Great another card that when the fan dies you will not be able to find a replacement without changing the whole heatsink or ghettoing it to hell

Does the 650 need the extra cooling from the slightly bigger fan?

Ah, another day, another FUDding fanboy post.

The GTX 650 Ti generally gets nowhere near it's TDP...the HD 7770 GHz Edition however, not so much.

Just for the sake of completeness, I'd add that AMD don't actually list a board power for their cards, and the "80 watt" number, well, that's prefixed by a tilde logogram in the PR slides- which might be why the board exceeds that number in real world testing.

You are proper to contest what I wrote. It isn’t a fan-boy thing, it's just data on the spec’s, and the data that we have at our disposal. I believe it best to use demonstrable/confirmable records, which is where the best number come from. If you interpret them as having incongruities you can, as you did, good to bring it up.
http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=682&card2=675

That why in W1zzard's power consumption test you provided, Maximum (Furmark not gaming) actually shows the 7770 at 83W, while yes a MSI Power Edition is 84W. For basically the same power some 20% performance increase. No one’s contesting Kepler as not being a very efficient design.

Yeah it’s weird how both play with the numbers. AMD doesn't promote its TDP and over-rates PSU recommendations. Nvidia more often provides elevated TDP, while very minimalistic PSU requirements. I don't like any of it, such specification need to be standardized, governed, and stipulate, just as JEDEC is for memory or as Ecos Consulting certifies PSU efficiency.

I think in such Kepler’s (without the boost controls) there can be specific OC levels where the power may encroach to such levels. That’s where Nvidia likes to permit a little more room to offer AIB’s their Über OC’s; more than just MSI P-E of 7% (993Mhz), part as much as (1071Mhz) 15.5% and still remain under the limit.

That appears to be the standard machined aluminum chunk heatsink that comes on a lot of mid-low range video cards these days (looks exactly the same as the ones on my 550 Ti cards) . From what I've seen, the OEMs usually customize them with larger / smaller fans and different plastic shrouds.

It'd be nice if it were possible to get replacement fans for them (aside from scrounging them from sellers in china on eBay). I'd upgrade mine to PWM controlled 100mms in a heartbeat!

Nice move from Gigabyte, they should do it with their stronger cards as well, and go even bigger with stronger cards and better quality.
I'm really tired that the first thing I have to do with every card is to replace the stock fan with a near silent 120 or a 140mm FDB one. It's expensive, it breaks the warranty, and it's only needed because manufacturers are careless and playing cheap.
