In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 470 have the same core clock speed of 607 MHz, but the GeForce GTX 470 has 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 465. As a result, the GeForce GTX 470 exhibits a 7.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 465. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 465 and the GeForce GTX 470 have the same core clock speed of 607 MHz, but the GeForce GTX 470 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 465. As a result, the GeForce GTX 470 exhibits a 4.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 465. 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 GeForce GTX 470, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 470 has 256 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 465, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 470 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 470 has 31.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 465, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 470 is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 465.

The GeForce GTX 465 has 352 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 470 has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 465 is 427 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 470 is 544. The GeForce GTX 470 having 117 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 470 delivers a noticeably 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 GeForce GTX 470 requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 465 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 470. The GeForce GTX 470 requires 15 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 465 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 470 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 465.

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.
GeForce GTX 470 is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF100 Core and offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 40 ROPs. The central unit runs at 607MHz and the memory clock operates at 837MHz.
Compared to GeForce GTX 480, it delivers considerably worse performance due to the lower SPU count and lower clocked central unit and therefore also lower Shaders speed.
Most modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution. However, some will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
