NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost - The New & Improved Mid-Range Kepler

Unigine 4.0 "Heaven" and Unigine "Valley" 1.0 Results

Unigine 4.0 "Heaven" Results

Unigine's "Heaven" benchmark tests GPUs with extreme tessellation, dynamic sky with volumetric clouds, real-time global illumination, and screen-space ambient occlusion among others.

The GTX 650 Ti Boost surprised us here by beating the ASUS Radeon HD 7790 by as much as 20% in almost every setting and also outscored the HD 7850 by a few percent on all settings. In fact, it was much closer in performance to the GTX 660, trailing it by just a few percent with AA turned off. Even with 8x AA, the difference between the GTX 650 Ti Boost and GTX 660 was only a few FPS apart.



Unigine "Valley" 1.0 Results

Valley is a new benchmark from Unigine that renders a highly detailed seamless landscape covering a total area of 64,000 square kilometers. It also utilizes dynamic sky effects, volumetric clouds, sun shafts, DOF, and ambient occlusion.

We saw a similar result to our Heaven benchmark, with the GTX 650 Ti Boost outscoring the ASUS Radeon HD 7790 by as much as 20% and the HD 7850 by as much as 8%, only slightly trailing the GTX 660 by less than 1%.


The Good
