With only a week until the launch of the new GeForce GTX 650 Ti video cards, the first benchmark numbers have apparently surfaced. The cards are using the new GK106 GPU, but not all the 960 CUDA cores are activated.
In GTX 650 Ti cards, only 769 CUDA units are active and the standard 1 GB of GDDR5 video memory is clocked at 6008 MHz on a modest 128-Bit BUS.
The first benchmarks reportedly
show a reference card achieving a 3D Mark 11 score of X1489 in the Extreme Preset and a P4689 score in the Performances Preset.
These make the card a bit faster than AMD
’s Radeon HD 6870 or Nvidia’s own GeForce GTX 560, but overall slower than a Pitcairn AMD Radeon HD 7850.
