In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7720.

The Radeon HD 7720 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed but 4 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the Radeon HD 7720 manages to provide 6.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 7720 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 465 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 7720 providing 7.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 7720 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 465, and so the Radeon HD 7720 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 465.

The Radeon HD 7720 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 Radeon HD 7720 has 31.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 465, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 7720 is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 465.

The Radeon HD 7720 has 800 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 465 has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7720 is 336 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427. The GeForce GTX 465 having 91 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 7720 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 7720 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon HD 7720 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465. The GeForce GTX 465 requires 50 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7720 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 465 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7720.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7720 is a fast-middle-class GFX that's still based on the 40nm, Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Barts LE Core and offers 800 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 840MHz and the memory clock operates at 1050MHz.
Therefore, it's a renamed Radeon HD 6790 and will offer exactly the same performance.
As based on the Barts LE Core, it performs better than Radeon HD 7750 (which goes against the naming) but falls behind Radeon HD 7770. It's expected to consume 150 Watt - more than Radeon HD 7750/Radeon HD 7770 and heat more, due to the higher manufacturing process. As based on the Terascale 2 architecture, it will not have nearly as much driver support as the GCN based GPUs.
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.
