NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Review has been leaked and published by Korean website Playwares, which shows the gaming performance of the upcoming card in various titles against the Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7770 GPUs.
This belongs to techspy IMO
To be fair, it is relevant to PC gaming, though you're probably right. I'm actually planning on getting a HD 7850 anyway, so it's good to hear nvidia are consistently failing to beat AMD to for value, means I won't have to change my build.
While I don't agree that it's good to see nvidia failing to beat AMD for value (I would be very glad to see any manufacturer offering better performance for a lower price), as a 7850 owner myself, I can tell you that it's definitely one of the best price/performance cards of the moment.
The GTX 660 ti gets better performance, runs on less power, and is cheaper than the HD 7850, so you may want to consider that before you make your upgrade buddy.
You can't say "nvidia are consistently failing to beat AMD to for value" when most of their GPU's were greater in performance and and equal price as the AMD counterparts, which is why AMD dropped prices and started introducing the Ghz series of cards (which they should have seeing their cards been out longer, and were weaker). The 690 by all means should be on par with the 7990 The 680 > 7970 which is why the 7970Ghz was made The 670 > 7950 which is why the 7970 had to drop price to compare The 660Ti >=< 7950 & 7870 The 660 >=< 7870 & 7850 The 650Ti ? 7850 (based on "early reviews" >=< 7850 & 7770) The 650 >=< 7770 & 7750 NVIDIA is finding middle ground+ between AMD's cards, not flat-out crushing them. I don't understand exactly why, but my guess is because it's to keep profits as high as possible. Why offer the power of a 7870 for the price of the 650Ti when it would ruin sales for the 660Ti or 660. I agree there are too many cards doing similar things, but it gives you a choice on finding a card that provides exactly what you need. The 670 and 7950 are the best cards IMO. A single card will give you max gaming specs. for the next few years (3 - 5 years), and by then you can add another card for max gaming specs. for another few years after that (6 - 10 years).
@EL Lanf Hmmm...the 6xx series is the reason for the AMD price drops and new ghz models of the 7950/7970...So how is Nvidia failing?The 6xx launched on point with better performance from day one...AMD had to launch brand new editions just to compete.
@ Gran Touring - The GTX660ti easily outclasses the 7850, but it consumes more power and it's considerably more expensive. I think you're confusing the 7850 with the 7870 (which is still slightly cheaper than the GTX660ti where I live).
Makes my purchase of a GTX680 feel that much better.
What shocks me is the fact it's gets close and sometimes beats my 6870. Not in much though. Only thing i can put it down to is core and ram speed. But i love my 6870:)
I'm going to be upgrading from my 4870 to a GTX660Ti. After all the driver issues I've had over the past few years, I'm never buying AMD/ATi again.
what driver issues? I keep hearing people complain about AMD/ATI drivers, but I really never had any problems with any game. Not even one crash ever. I guess most users must be complete noobs at setting their machines up.
AMD usually has issues with games that use OpenGL. Generally, the means games that run on idTech as that's about the only remaining engine that uses openGL. Recent examples are Brink and Rage, which had texture issues on AMD cards until a driver update which took a few weeks to fully sort out.
