    Windows 10 Home Setup Says GeForce GTX 650 Is Not Compatible


    Hello everyone,,,

    I've been happily running Windows 8.0 (not 8.1) for a few years on a home-built computer and I was over six years behind on updates.

    Sidebar Explanation: Updates for me have been historically frustrating because I can think of many times when things perform flawlessly for me, then I install an update, and suddenly something doesn't work correctly anymore, or I have other problems, when the only thing I had done to the system was update it. So I have often eschewed updates solely for that reason. My computer worked. It did everything I wanted it to do. I didn't get viruses or malware because I was careful about what I was doing online. Occasionally I might have gotten a Potentially Unwanted Program from some toolbar, but that was easily fixed. I was happy.

    Anyway, updating was kind of frustrating because of problems irrelevant to this post, so I went to Walmart and brought Windows 10 Home...home. Excited to be upgrading so I can update Photoshop to a version that's not compatible with Windows 8, I stuck the USB stick into my computer and started the process. After a step or two and several minutes of waiting, I was greeted with this screen:


    Well, that card is actually listed as a compatible card for Windows 10! So naturally, I'm confused. I don't have the very latest driver installed for the card in Windows 8, but I assumed the setup would check the actual hardware, not the driver running it.

    The Nvidia site is confusing. The page for the GTX 650 has DirectX 12 listed as a technology:

    Specifications | GeForce

    But when viewing their list of DirectX-Compatible cards, the GTX 650 is not listed. Research outside Nvidia shows that the 650 GTX has DirectX support only through "feature levels", but only full DirectX 11 support.

    Can someone clear up my confusion a little?

    Thank you. *Smile

    :)

    NVIDIA Working on Faster GeForce GTX 650 Ti

    They won't do such a thing because:-
    • It's the $140~$150 price-point that HD 7790 is after, and which GTX 650 Ti holds
    • "GTX 660 SE" would step up production cost (192-bit == at least six memory chips)
    • Tinkering with clocks on the existing 650 Ti costs nothing.
    • Something else that wouldn't cost anything, is giving GTX 650 Ti the GPU Boost feature, something it currently lacks

    I would like to see boost, and 2GB, I think it would really make for a sweet spot.
