In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 465 are equal.

The GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 465 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 465 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 465 was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 465, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 465 MSI M2 Edition and the GeForce GTX 465 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 465 MSI M2 Edition and the GeForce GTX 465 are the same, which means the GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 465 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 465 MSI M2 Edition and the GeForce GTX 465 have 352 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 465. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 465.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 465 MSI M2 Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 465 that features a new cooling system which doesn't affect performance directly, meaning its performance is on level with the reference GeForce GTX 465.GeForce GTX 465 is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF100 Core (optimized GF104 Core) and offers 352 Shader Processing Units, 42 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 607MHz and the memory clock operates at 802MHz.
Despite feature more Shader Processing Units than GeForce GTX 460, it's lower clocked. Benchmarks indicate that its performance is around 3% better than the standard version and therefore on level with GeForce GTX 460 v2.
Most modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution. However, some will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
