EVGA GeForce GTX 465 SuperClocked Video Card Review


GeForce GTX 465 is the latest DirectX 11-based graphics chip released by NVIDIA, being more accessible than the GTX 470 and GTX 480 models. At USD 280 – USD 300 it is quoted exactly between the Radeon HD 5830 (USD 240 – USD 275) and Radeon HD 5850 (USD 295 – USD 335). Let’s see how this factory-overclocked version from EVGA dubbed SuperClocked (SC) edition fared in our tests.

The new GeForce GTX 465 uses the same core and shader clock rates as GeForce GTX 470 (607 MHz and 1,215 MHz respectively), but it uses a 256-bit memory interface (GTX 470 uses a 320-bit memory interface) and a memory clock that is a little bit lower (3,206 MHz vs. 3,348 MHz). It also has a lower number of graphics engines (a.k.a. “shaders” or “CUDA cores”): 352 against 448. In the table below we compare the main specifications of the four video cards we included in our review. The SuperClocked model from EVGA comes with a small 3% overclocking.
