In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465.

The GTX 560 has a 325 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. This results in the GTX 560 providing 25.5 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 560 has a 325 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 465 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 providing 10.4 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 GTX 560 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 465, and so the GTX 560 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 GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB 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 GTX 560 has 40.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 465, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 465 has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 626 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427. The GTX 560 having 199 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465. The GeForce GTX 465 requires 50 Watts more than the GTX 560 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 GTX 560.

Cooling Solution
The new upgraded versions of X560 Ti DF and X560 DF are equipped with brand new Cool Pro thermal modules. Most importantly, the exclusive 9cm Ball Bearing Fans operate stably even at high speed and avoid problems such as increase in noise and fan failures caused by bearing’s wear and tear, effectively taking away the heat generated by graphics card. Furthermore, this cooler incorporates two high-performance 8mm copper heat pipes which enable optimum heat transfer, obtaining obvious performance upgrade in cooling.

Benchmarks Indicate a 13% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
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.
