Nvidia Bundles GeForce GTX 650 Ti With Assassin's Creed 3

By - Source: Nvidia | B 27 comments

A copy of Assassin's Creed III, will be included with GTX 650 Ti cards, as long as the vendor of the card is participating in this promotion. The cards, available from ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, PNY, Point of View, Sparkle and Zotac, are retailing for about $149.

The GTX 650 Ti sits in the middle of mainstream GPU market and is likely to become Nvidia's volume product this Christmas season. The additional promotion should help achieve this goal. The cheapest Kepler option is the GTX 650, which lists for MSRP $109.

The titanium "TI" version increases the count of active CUDA cores from 384 to 768, while the base clock drops from 1058 MHz to 925 MHz. The memory clock climbs from 5.0 Gbps to 5.4 Gbps and the memory bandwidth from 80.0 GBps to 86.4 GBps. Be sure to check out our review on the GTX 650 Ti for the full details on this card's performance.

    Hmm, assume you can sell Creed for $50 on Ebay( I think that is a safe bet), 650TI would be an amazing value as long as that promotion last.

    Correction, I though ACIII was a $60 game like BL2, turns out it it s a $50 game so on Ebay probably sell for $35-$40.

    I wish AC3 came with the GTX 660 too.

    I haven't really liked assassins creed since the first one. No idea if this will be remotely good. The game is just too easy that there is no satisfaction.

    Still don't see prices at $150 on NewEgg. Most of the prices are around $160, and the lowest available price for a 7850 on NewEgg right now is $165. They need to do better to get lower prices, especially since the only card available for the real $150 price does not come with ACIII.

    That "Weak" card can run ACIII @ max settings.


    At 2560x1440 with 8x MSAA? Didn't think so.

    I'd take the cheaper 7770 over the 650 Ti. It handles overclocking and MSAA far better and AC3 simply in't enough incentive to go with the inferior card. One thing going for the 650 Ti is that it'd probably be an excellent card for PhysX calculation for a higher end AMD or Nvidia card.

    Guys, the title is backwards - Assassin's Creed 3 is included with the 650ti.

    I hope this is hinting that AC3 will run better on nvidia cards. Wish I came with the 660 ti ill be buying at the end of the month though.

    Ubisoft isn't known for good PC ports...good luck running Assassin's Creed on a ~$150(really like a $170 card) GPU on max settings.

    I'll buy it off of Steam when it's $10 in a year.

    So GTX 690, 680, 670, 660 Ti, and now 650 Ti have game included from purchase of one of those video cards, BUT WHY GTX 660 GETS NOTHING?!

    +1, the only good way is to buy the card now, sell the AC3 key @ full price immediately.

    Why would they even bother with the bundle. Playing AC3 on that card would SUCK, sub-par graphics at not a decent resolution...

    I think this is just a marketing scheme for nVidea to get a jump over AMD's mainstream cards.

    maybe Nvidia thinks GTX 660 it's they're best value and don't need to include a game, but I think it would be perfect @180$-190$ price tag on Holly day season, my Budget will be around that. so if the price stay the same my Best option will be the AMD HD7850.

    What I was most interested in, and most disappointed about, was seeing how this card stacks up against the GTX 550 Ti. Since this looks to be the direct replacement, head-to-head between these two models seemed like a no-brainer.

    I am very curious considering the drop in memory bandwidth from 192-bit to 128-bit, plus the loss of SLI. Looked like a step backwards.
