In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 (OEM).

The GTX 745 has a 426 MHz higher core clock speed but 12 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 745 manages to provide 6.4 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 GTX 745 has a 426 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 465, but the GeForce GTX 465 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 745. As a result, the GeForce GTX 465 exhibits a 2.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 745. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 745 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 465, and so the GTX 745 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 465 when running the latest games.

The GTX 745 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 465, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 465 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 465 has 73.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 745, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is much better than the GTX 745.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 465 has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 745 is 536 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427. The GTX 745 having 109 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GTX 465 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 745 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 465. This means that the GTX 745 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 745 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465. The GeForce GTX 465 requires 145 Watts more than the GTX 745 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 465 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 745.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 745 is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Variant of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-300-A2 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of DDR3. The central unit runs at 1033MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Good Performance at resolutions up to 1920x1080.
However, even at 1920x1080 GeForce GTX 750 is still considerably faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a considerably strong processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 745.
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.
