ASUS GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest in the Kepler lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 660 Ti, it has some very distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. Beyond the reference design card, however, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, with improved power distribution, custom heatsinks for lower temperatures, factory overclocked settings, and even voltage tweaking capabilities for enthusiasts who want to extract the most our of their graphics card. ASUS is bringing all of these to consumers with the GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP. Click through for more.



 
 
 
 
 

Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti OC

Today's review here is a look at the non-reference Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti OC, a model that sports a custom cooler and a factory overclock for only $20 more than the reference design. We expect some good things from this card and Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let's dive in and answer those questions and more. Click through for more.



 
 
 
 
 

Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest in the Kepler lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 660 Ti, it has some very distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. Costing about $149 for the reference design (and about $10 to $20 more for most partner cards), this creates a very interesting scenario, as it sits just above the Radeon 7770 in terms of price, so the question is whether this new Kepler card has the horsepower to compete in areas other than simply price. Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let's dive in and answer those questions and more.

ECS GeForce GT 640

We've seen several Kepler-based graphics cards from Nvidia, and have noted their ability to provide great performance at competitive prices. And today is a bit of a continuation of that trend, as we're looking at the GeForce GT 640, a lower-end card that comes with a retail price of around $100 and targeted to consumers on a very tight budget that don't need a powerhouse gaming card. While the ECS GT 640 does target modest goals, we love great value, so the question is can this card perform reasonably well enough to earn a recommendation from us? Let's see how it shapes up.

Sapphire 7770 FleX

We've seen a few other FleX models, notably the Sapphire 7950 FleX which proved rather worthy in terms of horsepower and cooling prowess. This 7770 FleX is considerably less powerful, so the beauty of Eyefinity gaming might also be a bit less satisfying. But what about price? At about $150, it looks like Sapphire might again have a good value card. We've typically found the Sapphire FleX cards to be very impressive, so let's take a closer look at the Sapphire 7770 FleX and see if it has the power to tackle Eyefinity gaming.

Gigabyte GTX 660 Windforce

Today marks the launch of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660, and one of the cards we're looking at today is the Gigabyte GTX 660 Windforce, a mid-range gaming card that sports the cooler of the same name. We've seen this cooler on other cards models, most recently on the GTX 660 Ti by Gigabyte, and we came away suitably impressed at the low temperatures and noise levels. Can Nvidia continue the Kepler onslaught into the mid-range? Can Gigabyte's card stand out in the pack? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let's dive in and answer those questions and more.

MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr

Today is GeForce GTX 660 launch day, and we're looking at the MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr, a mid-range gaming workhorse that sports the sleek cooler of the same name. We've seen this cooler on other cards models by MSI, and we came away suitably impressed at the low temperatures and noise levels. Can MSI continue the winning ways with the GTX 660 Twin Frozr? Can it beat the mid-range Radeon cards? Is it worth the money? Let's dive in and answer those questions and more. Click through for the full review.



 
 
 
 
 

HIS 7970 X

Not only does this HIS 7970 X come with a Turbo overclock among the highest on the market, it also sports the company's latest IceQ X2 custom cooler. From what we've seen of HIS in the past, we're hoping for some great results on this card, not only in terms of performance but also low temperatures and noise. The 7970 X also has a couple surprises in store for those wanting Eyefinity gaming out of the box, up to Eyefinity 6 in fact. It's a very special premium graphics card, but the question is: Can the HIS 7970 X beat the GTX 680? Click through to find out.



 
 
 
 
 

Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X

The Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X comes with a custom cooler, and if history is any indication, we expect very big things from this Vapor-X technology, as Sapphire typically produces some of the coolest-running Radeon cards out there. Perhaps more importantly, however, the 7970 Vapor-X sports a factory overclock, to the tune of a 1GHz clock speed. This should provide enough of a speed boost for it to better competes against the competition's offerings. Can the Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X live up to the expectations?

ZOTAC GTX 660 Ti AMP! Edition

Today we're looking at the ZOTAC GTX 660 Ti AMP! Edition, a boldly-styled card that comes with a more attractive price tag of $330 for those on a more modest budget. The AMP! Edition sports a Dual Silencer cooler and a factory overclock that promises big performance results, and we have high hopes since the architecture here is nearly the same as the GTX 670. Can't wait to see how this card slays the bench? Click through to find out.
