Report: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti to launch on October 9

A new 650 Ti SKU will be launched on October 9, according to heise.de.

The new 650 Ti is apparently positioned to fill the gap between the GTX 660, which currently sells for about $220 and the GTX 650, which sells for about $110. The card will be based on a 28 nm GK106 GPU with 960 active CUDA cores and 1 GB memory.

Expect a $149 launch price, which turns the card into an upsell option not only for the GTX 650, but also for AMD's Radeon HD 7770, which currently sells for about $110.

    There is another GTX655, the gap between 660non-Ti and 650 non-Ti is too wide to be fill with just 1 product.

    About time they start aiming for the sweet spot with Kepler. Don't understand why both AMD and Nvidia have been leaving this big hole in the middle of their lineups this year.

    AMD should release the 7790 to fill the gap between 7770 and 7850.. But 8000 Series is getting closer...

    It's at a currently mostly ignored price point, but it has 1GiB of VRAM and it has the same core configuration as the 660... Seriously, 1GiB on a new card that is intended to fit into the 6870/560 market? Nvidia could have dropped capacity to 1.5GiB instead of 1GiB.

  • Ooh look at that, too bad nVidia if you had done this sooner I might not have bought my 7770, but you snooze you loose.

    exactly @blazorthon, with the speed of 650Ti GK106, it does match very well with 1.5GB VRAM, cutting 512MB RAM and sell that card @ $119~129 would have much better than @ $149.

    for 650TI, 1.5GB would have been ideal.

    Unfortunately, Nvidia never seems interested in using an ideal amount of VRAM :(
