Sparkle Dragon Cyclone GTX 650

The non-reference Sparkle Dragon Cyclone GTX 650 derives its name primarily from the custom cooler (though you also get a factory overclock) that Sparkle has designed. It includes three fans that are swap-and-drop, allowing consumers the choice of Turbo, Stock, or Silent options to install in order to suit their preferences and needs. It's definitely innovative, but can the card compete in criteria other than price and fan design?

Sparkle Calibre X680

With a custom heatsink that has a design with the fans mounted below the fins, the Calibre X680 looks different from most other models we've seen. Touted as a quiet solution for discerning consumers, the X680 also comes with an aggressive Boost Clock out of the box to provide a horsepower bonus as well. And for those who are cost conscious, it comes with a very competitive price tag of $490 as well, which is considerably cheaper than many competitors' custom offerings. Looks good on paper. Let's push onward and see if the Sparkle Calibre X680 can match up well in action.



 
 
 
 
 

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.

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.
