Not long ago, we ran upon the rumor that NVIDIA would be releasing yet another graphics adapter on October 9, one that would have superior performance capabilities to the GeForce GTX 650 released recently.
Called GeForce GTX 650 Ti, it will bear the GK106-200-A2 codename and it will be powered by the GK106 graphics processing unit, not the GK107 found in the GTX 650
Most of the specs revealed by the leak on ArabPCWorld
are the same as the ones we gleamed from the previous report, but it doesn't hurt to have a confirmation, especially when it comes in tow with new data.
The GK106 GPU is expected to run at a frequency of 960 MHz. There will be no boost clock, meaning that the frequency will always be under that of GTX 650.
On the flip side, the new model will have many more CUDA cores, 576 instead of 384, as well as a higher ROP (Raster operator) count (24 versus 16).
Furthermore, the 1 or 2 GB of GDDR5 memory will run at 5.4 GHz effective speed, not the 5 GHz of the 650.
The other specs go as follows: a memory interface of 128 bits, a single 6-pin PCI Express power connector (the TDP is 75-85W) and multiple video outputs (probably dual-DVI and HDMI).
The price should fall between the $149 and $169 marks, which correspond to 115-149 Euro to 130-169 Euro.
All in all, the video board sounds like a more than decent product, especially at that TDP. There is just one loose end: the rumor that the 650 Ti will have 768 CUDA cores and a better memory interface. While we assume the above info is correct, it doesn't necessarily render void the possibility of a second version being designed, one with the higher CUDA core set and 192-bit interface. We'll have to wait until next month and see.
