In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5870 1024MB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465.

The HD 5870 has a 243 MHz higher core clock speed and 36 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. This results in the HD 5870 providing 41.3 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 HD 5870 has a 243 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 465 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 5870 providing 7.8 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 GeForce GTX 465 was released less than a year after the HD 5870, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 465 and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 5870 has 50.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 465, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5870 is much better than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 465 has 352 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB has 1600. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5870 is 680. The HD 5870 having 253 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 5870 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 465 requires 200 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB requires 188 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 5870. The GeForce GTX 465 requires 12 Watts more than the HD 5870 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 HD 5870.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 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.
Radeon HD 5870 1024MB is a High-End GPU part of the Evergreen HD 5000 family. HD 5870 wears the Cypress XT, which allows for 1600 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Texture units increase from the Cypress Pro HD 5850 chip improves HD 5870 Filtering capabilities, while still mantaining the 256-bit Memory interface on GDDR5. Most modern demanding games will run on Ultra settings on Full HD, whereas really demanding games such as Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3 will require lowered Aliasing settings in order to achieve fluent FPS on 1080p. Power draw is rather overwhelming, and gamers looking to get this GPU will need a decent 500W PSU with two PCIe connectors.
