In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 215 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 25.9 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 GTX 560 Ti has a 215 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 465 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 6.9 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 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 465, and so the GTX 560 Ti 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 GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 465, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 465, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is slightly better than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 465 has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427. The GTX 560 Ti having 204 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465. The GeForce GTX 465 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 560 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 465 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560 Ti, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB.
While 2GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 2GB are needed, such as gaming at 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.

Cooling Solution
Untouched.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate b>no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
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.
