Report: Nvidia Preps GK107-Based GTX 650 Card

By - Source: Donanimhaber | B 14 comments

Nvidia is reportedly putting the finishing touches on its GTX 650 graphics card. Based on a GK107 chip, the card is rumored to be released on September 17.

The 550 Ti may soon be replaced.The 550 Ti may soon be replaced.

According to Turkish site Donanim Haber, the GTX 650 is positioned above the GT 640, with which it shares the GK107 chip with 384 active processing cores and 1.3 billion transistors. the GK107 is only about 40 percent as large as the GK104 (1,344 cores) that is used, for example, in the previously introduced GTX 670. Pricewise, expect the GTX 650 to find its place much closer to the $100 GT 640 than to the $400 GTX 670. A $120 to $150 range is expected.

The GTX 650 is said to arrive with 1 GB GDDR5 memory, 1 GHz core clock and will become available a little late for the back-to-school season. However, a slight graphics card upgrade may not be on many school supply shopping lists anyway.

    AMD has had their cards out for forever now, any non-biased buyer who simply wanted a graphics card would most likely have already bought an AMD card. Doesn't Nvidia lose a ton of money by waiting so long to release the rest of their cards? By the time they finish releasing all of them, AMD will have a new generation of faster cards!

    That card is supposed to be around 560ti-570 performance :) 

    Essentially a beefed up 550ti that is worth the $150!

    the 560ti is still at around 180-190. if this is around the performance of a 560ti and a 570, it is VERY doubtful itll be anywhere near the 150 price point. itd be around post 200 price point and the 560ti would drop(I say this considering that new gen clones of cards are always more expensive than their previous versions, and usually more efficient.)

    I suspect this will be closer to a regular 560.

    I think it is closer to a 460 SE than 560ti. it is a GK107 chip, noway it will be 70-80% the speed of GK104(GTX660Ti/GTX580).

    im expecting it personally to perform near a normal 560 as well. it just makes more sense to me if nvidia is going to almost go 100$ at each price point

    100$ 640
    160-180 (albeit not 200, its not gk 104) 650
    300 660ti
    400 670
    500 680

    then nvidia can safely say that it tried to get a gpu at each price point.

    at least from what I've seen based on the benchmarks, I'd be disappointed in the GT640's performance if I had to pay anything over $90... :/

    The 650 would have a hard time beating the 7770. Probably just slightly faster than the 7750 with the current specs...

    I think its more to the line of replacing the 450 GTS, 550 TI as a budget gamer card. I would expect the price to be around $120 with MIR's for around $88 as was the 450 GTS when it was released.

    It is actually not so simple. This card is in the market 5-6 monts before AMD next generation card. So anyone who simply want a graphic card will buy it before 8000 series is out...
    But yeah, Nvidia 28nm cards have been late this time, but it does not mean that there will not be customers to them, if they are any good!

    exactly, it is just 384 kepler core, I am amaze that people actually think a 384 kepler core + 128bit 6GHz card can be on par with a 560/570.

    imo gtx 650 will come at $150 price point...replacing previous gen gtx 560...gtx 650 will beat 7770 in terms of performance...the situation will be like this for nvidia...

    gtx 680 - $500
    gtx 670 - $400
    gtx 660 Ti - $300
    gtx 660 - $200
    gtx 650 - $150
    and so on...

    Overview:
    GTX 650 (2012) is the successor to gtx 550 ti (2011) and will easily beat amd radeon hd 7770 GE when it comes to performance...

    currently 7770 g3d score sits at 2058...where as previous gen gtx 550 ti scores a little low at 1886...definitely gtx 650 will be much powerful than gtx 550 ti eventually beating the competition w.r.t. performance...

    price point seems to be around $150 upon release replacing gtx 550 ti @ $150

    but nvidia is just too late considering the fact that amd launched mid range & entry level gpu's a few months ago

    * a must buy gpu for budget oriented consumers

    If the 384 cuda cores are from a Kepler architecture, then the GTX 650 ti won't even be close to a GTX 560 ti. Remember 384 kepler cores=192 fermi cores. So it is essentially an overclocked gtx 550 ti.

    I would really like to see how this card performs around a regular 560. NVIDIA should really step up their mid-range cards. Their high-end cards provides competition to AMD/ATi but I just don't see the same in low-end/ mid-range sections of NVIDIA.... :/
