[Press Release] ASUS GeForce GTX 650-E Graphics Card
Taipei, Taiwan — ASUS today announced global availability of the GeForce® GTX 650-E, a motherboard bus-powered DirectX® 11.1 graphics card that’s ideal for desktop PCs with low-wattage power supplies The GeForce® GTX 650-E combines DirectX® 11.1 compatibility and 28nm NVIDIA® GPU technology with a mere 60W power consumption, making it a very appealing upgrade option for users looking for a high-performance graphics card at an affordable price.
Motherboard-powered for easier and more eco-friendly upgrades
The ASUS GeForce® GTX 650-E offers a quick and accessible upgrade for customers interested in affordable NVIDIA® 28nm GPU technology. Powered from a PCI Express slot with a modest 60W average power consumption, the ASUS GeForce® GTX 650-E is an ideal choice for users looking to upgrade their PCs without investing in a new power supply, making the process much easier and less costly. Available with 1GB or 2GB GDDR5 video memory, the ASUS GeForce® GTX 650-E supports medium-to-high detail in current PC games, along with smooth 1080p full HD video playback.
Superior stability with Super Alloy Power
The ASUS GeForce® GTX 650-E features exclusive Super Alloy Power components that reduce power loss and extend the card’s lifespan by 2.5 times compared to a reference GeForce® GTX 650 card. Super Alloy Power components can withstand higher temperatures and greater stress than generic power delivery designs, with the custom solid-state capacitors rated for 50,000 hours.
With fan blades shaped to restrict dust build-up and reduce the amount of debris entering the shroud, the ASUS GeForce® GTX 650-E has a cooling system that maintains optimum heat dissipation for longer periods. ASUS testing shows this fan design can extend graphics card longevity by up to 25% compared to a reference GeForce® GTX 650 graphics card.

Re: [Press Release] ASUS GeForce GTX 650-E Graphics Card
Now here's my question: How on earth did you get the wattage down below 64W without underclocking the RAM or the GPU? VRM improvements? Magic? Redesigned circuitry? Most "Green" GPUs I've seen from Nvidia over the ages have been underclocked so this is mildly confusing.
