GeForce GTX 965M 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 965M 2GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
GeForce GTX 965M 2GB Equips the GPU Codenamed GM204-N16E-GS which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU and has 8 SM activated. It offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 924MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1253MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB. This is adequate for 1080p Gaming in most Games.


Power Consumption
GeForce GTX 965M 2GB has a Rated Board TDP of 50W.


Performance
GeForce GTX 965M 2GB proves to be incredible fast at resolutions up to 1920x1080. In fact, even at 1920x1080 it matches the older GeForce GTX 870M.
Above 1920x1080, GeForce GTX 965M 2GB's performance decreases significantly and becomes further distant from the higher positioned GeForce GTX 970M.
Nevertheless, all modern games should run comfortably at 1080p. It can be said its performance lies somewhere between a desktop GeForce GTX 660 and a Radeon R9 270 which are both powerful Graphics Cards.


System Suggestions
We Recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Will we be adding the 965m(refresh)? They were going to call it the 965m TI but then they decided they would rather confuse everyone and just name it 965m AGAIN… will never understand their thought process.
