Out of curiousity - Low Profile vs Regular video cards

#11CardigansFanPosted 9/17/2013 7:53:46 AM
Anyway TC, provided the clockspeeds are the same it'll obviously perform as well, but for higher-end cards you'll usually notice higher fan speeds/noises and higher temperatures than standard cards. I remember there was a GTS450 low profile, for example, and I remember most reviews complaining about that.

They will perform the same, but you're only going to find them in the low-end cards.


There is a low profile GTX 650. thats pretty midrange.


It'll play a lot of games on low-med at lower resolutions, but I wouldn't go as far to say it's midrange.


So a gtX card is not at least midrange?


Any Nvidia x50 series gpu is considered entry level. You only begin midrange with their GTX x60 series up to their x70 gpus.


So if the 650 is entry level, is the 610 complete garbage?

Bingo. At least in comparison to the rest of the 6xx/7xx series cards.

If you have gaming in mind, yep, pretty much. It's fine for basic stuff like, you know, displaying Windows, playing movies, etc., if your computer does not have some kind of integrated graphics solution.

Low midrange, yeah.

I disagree. The series goes from the X10 (low end) to X80 (high end) for single cards.

It makes sense that the X50 is "midrange" since it's in the middle. I'd consider X60 to be upper midrange, with X70 and X80 to be high end. X10-X30 are low end, with X40 and X50 midrange.
