The GeForce GTX 465 is NVIDIA’s third graphics card in the Fermi lineup, below the flagship GTX 480 and GTX 470, NVIDIA has been releasing lower end cards based on the Fermi architecture to increase availability to end users who don’t all plan to spend top dollar for the best card out there. The unreleased GTX 460 specifications recently leaked all over the web to continue to fill the pricing gap but that is the land of NDA’s so on with the card we have here, from PNY’s XLR8 line the GeForce GTX 465 XLR8 1GB. This card has some serious competition from the ATI side of the fence in the HD 5830 and HD 5850 so read on to see how the PNY GTX 465 compared!
The PNY GeForce GTX 465 graphics card that we have on the test bench today is a dual-slot single GPU video card that measures in at 9.5″ in length and uses the part number VCGGTX465XPB. The GeForce GTX 465 is the same length as the GeForce GTX 470, but is one inch shorter than the GeForce GTX 480. If you have a small system this card should be able to fit in more cases and be easier to route wires around since it is shorter in length. The PNY GeForce GTX 465 XLR8 video card features reference clock speeds of 607MHz core clock (1215MHz on the stream processors) and 802MHz on the 1024MB of GDDR5 memory. The front of the PNY GTX465 is fairly plain, but PNY tried to spruce it up a bit with their stickers.
