NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650
The GeForce GTX 650 is an NVIDIA GPU. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 3% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 650 has 2 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 78 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 650 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1058 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 650 supports up to DirectX 11. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 64W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
