SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Oct. 9, 2012— NVIDIA is giving gamers another powerful reason to upgrade their rigs in advance of a bounty of soon-to-be-released, cutting-edge PC games, with today’s introduction of the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 650 Ti GPU, priced starting at $149.
To get a jump on this fall’s hotly anticipated gaming season, gamers who purchase a GTX 650 Ti from a participating partner will receive a free copy of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III , sure to be one of this year’s most sought after action titles for the PC.
The NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture is the foundation for all GeForce GTX GPUs and has redefined graphics for desktop and notebook PCs by combining revolutionary performance and gaming technology features with an amazing power-efficient design. Ranging in price from $109 for the GTX 650 to $999 for the GTX 690, GeForce GTX GPUs have helped usher in this year’s PC gaming renaissance. In keeping with the promise of a “titanium” edition, the GTX 650 Ti delivers turbocharged gaming performance at the remarkable starting price of $149.
Like its predecessors, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is a phenomenal upgrade opportunity for gamers using previous-generation technology. Compared to the GeForce 9600 GT, for example, the new GTX 650 Ti delivers more than five times the performance—even with all the DX11 and eye-candy features turned on. (1) The dramatic visual differences and full support for 1080p HD gaming completely change the way games look and feel, providing an immersive gaming experience only available with GeForce GTX GPUs.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti is available now from the world’s leading add-in card suppliers, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, PNY, Point of View, Sparkle and Zotac.
