GeForce GTX 650 Ti coming in October
NVidia have been slowly launching the Kepler series GPUs and graphics cards over the last few months. The most recent of these, the GK107 based GeForce GTX 650 with 384 CUDA cores, and the GK106 based GeForce GTX 660 with 960 CUDA cores, leave room for a couple more mid-range cards. A report at ArabPCWorld says that NVidia are planning a cut-down GK106 based card, GeForce GTX 650 Ti, to fit in this gap in October.
GTX 650 Ti will use a GK106 GPU with two of its five streaming multiprocessors (SMX, each with 192 CUDA cores) disabled. This gives it 576 CUDA cores, clocked at approximately 960 MHz with no boost clock. It also has a memory controller disabled, leaving a 128-bit memory interface. There is 1 GB GDDR5 memory, clocked at 1350 MHz, or effectively at 5.4 GHz, giving a memory bandwidth of 86.4 GB/s.
The TDP is not yet known, although it is known the card uses a PCI-E power connector, so it has to be above 75W. Based on the relative specs and TDP of the GTX 650 and GTX 660 cards, I would expect to see it somewhere around 90-95W.
The cards are expected to ship on October 9, with a retail price expected to be in the region of $149-179.
