In our first set of benchmarks for the GTX 650 Ti, it is important to keep in mind the competition for the card. Considering it comes in price point between the GTX 650 and the GTX 660, it is a fairly small window. Oddly enough the HD 7770 that we have tested many times is its main competition with prices ranging from $110 to $140. As a whole, in all four of our 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark 11 tests, we have the GTX 650 Ti coming in well above its direct competition from AMD. There are a couple times where the overclocked HD 7770’s do come close though. As far as past generation cards, we have the HD 6950 near the GTX 650 Ti in most of our results, showing how much cards this generation have improved over last year’s offerings. The HD 7850, AMD’s next step up in performance is still way higher in both performance and price, showing a gap in AMD’s product line.
