Nvidia GeForce GTX 465 Specs and Launch Date

Nvidia GeForce GTX 465 Specs and Launch Date

Here is our artist's impression of what the elusive Nvidia GTX 465 will look like at Computex on June 1st.

We've heard that Nvidia's third Fermi part, the GeForce GTX 465 will be announced on 1 June on the first day of Computex 2010.

The GeForce GTX 465 will use the same GF100 core as the GeForce GTX 470 and GeForce GTX 480, but will only use 352 stream processors: 11 out of the 16 SM blocks (or stream processor clusters, if you prefer) of the GF100 design will be active, with five sealed off. The actual clock speeds remain identical to those of the GTX 470 at 607MHz for core and 1,215MHz for the stream processors. The card will have 1GB of GDDR5, connected via a 256-bit interface, but reports of the clock speed vary depending on who we talked to.

The card uses two 6-pin PCI-E power connectors, but we've been told that the card actually uses much less power than the GTX 470, which also has two 6-pin power inputs. The GTX 465 will still be a dual slot card, and will look much like the GTX 470.

Answers to our questions about the performance of the new card ranged from an outright 'no comment' to 'hrmm hrrrr', with a wavy hand but no firm numbers. Unfortunately for Nvidia, we didn't see anyone smile, either - could graphics card manufacturers be worried, even at this early stage? We've been told that there will be news about the GeForce GTX 465 on 1 June, but despite seeing plenty of working cards, we don't know whether this will be just an announcement or actual launch of the card. Either way, there should be plenty of cards on show from many manufacturers.

In future news, the upcoming mainstream GF104, GF106 and GF108 GPUs are very tentatively titled 460, 450 and 430 respectively, though we don't know whether these cards will sport the GTX prefix or lesser GTS, GT or GTO ones. Or possibly something else entirely - this is Nvidia's naming department we're talking about. Whatever the names, these cards should be available at some time between July and August, along with laptop parts.

It's going to be a busy summer for the Nvidians, but at least they should be ready for September's GTC 2010. Are you waiting out the GeForce GTX 465? Let us know in the forums!

Sounds like they took some of the failed chips and slapped a 465 on it.

fingers crossed they sell em cheaper then 5850 n outperform 5850 to to bring about a price drop
and i'd buy a 5850

Outperform a 5850?

IMPOSSIBLEEEEE~!

a 470 can barely outperform a 5850...

My favourite post of the day. If the GTX 465 is faster and cheaper than the HD 5850, you'd buy the HD 5850!

/crystal ball
It'll be £200. It'll be slower than an HD 5850.

Praying they launch on the 1st... being waiting for this for my build. I cant afford the extra £50 for the 470... plus the power it would consume. I'd prefer to spend the £50 on a heater rather than let nvidia take that market too!

So is this Nvidias new attempt at making ATI laugh themselves out the market?

I think you've got the crazy. 470s struggle enough against a 5850, how on earth do you think the badly crippled "465" is going to compete?

Rumour has it that it'll be competing performance wise, with 5770s (I expect it to be faster than a 5770 however) but priced at 5850's prices.

nVidia are crazy, but they rely on their crazy fans who buy their crap no matter what.

Uhh, this card's going to be w*nk unless they price it VERY competitively.

Your artist's rendition looks like it was made in MSPAINT. I applaud said artist.

As you've pointed out elsewhere, why 465? Why not 460 so it fits in with their standard naming convention?

Unlikely given the architecture design (as these will simply be GF100 chips that have been binned (didn't meet the grade for a GTX480 or 470)).

Given the GF100 yeilds, and adding in the complexities of the card and cooling system (I assume this would have the same reference cooler as the GTX470) I can't imagine this card coming in at less than a HD5850, at least not at launch.

it will be renamed to 460 soon, or the 470 will be renamed to 475 soon.

That artist's impression is awesome, cracked me up when I saw it on the front page! :D

I'm right there with you.

I love the ATI cards, i so badly regret i bought a 9800 gt when I was begining and ill informed via nVidia fans. I could have gotten a 4870 for the same price ;(

Nevertheless Ati is now kinda bad behaved. I think they should lower they're price because the product is a year old and is really cheapier to them to produce. Or will that happen when AMD beggins making they're own chips?
CharlO 20th May 2010, 17:10 Quote
Ahh! And realized! It's 265 because they cripped a 270. Has nothing special and is really close to the superior (when comes to price).

Did nVidia really quite?

That and the fact that we're on the 465 and somehow in the middle it gets transformed in a 265 xD

I think I know were you're going with that xD

Are you waiting out the GeForce GTX 465?

Yeah! More disappointment...
Singularity 20th May 2010, 19:09 Quote
News flash: nVidia, now a comedy club.
So, it's a 465 because they sawed off a bit off the 470? makes sense.
But can it keep my room warm?

they want it to seem like youre getting more number for your money

Im betting something of 5830 performance (maybe smidgen less) for the same price as a 5850 (while consuming more power of course).

Have always been a NVidea fan, but all the reviews are screaming ATI. Hope Nvidea pull something out that will change the reviews.

Just one question, What standard ?

for the last few years Nvidia's naming has been nothing but a mess of confusing names, extensions re-branding and so on.

Ah shucks... We could have had a side shot to see inside the empty box as well...

I'm guessing myself that the 465, being a card based off the cut down gf100, will be a temporary solution designed to present some form of 'mid range' until they can get the real midrange solutions out in the following months, i.e. gf104 (460), gf106 (450) and so on. It'll probably only ever exist in very low numbers.

I like the artist's impression. A lot. :D

Still gonna buy a 5870. No more nVidia for me after the gts 250 I have. Although tesselation and and 3d Gaming seems attractive, I would rather have 3 monitors. ;)

i am sad to say this, but it looks like amd has the ball safely in there park with this generation of graphix cards, its a shame to see what nvidia must do with a gpu thats not even close to what i am used to see from them the 465 is not gona change my impression about fermi.

I'd be gutted if I was this guy:

Bloke receives 465 instead of 470!

Ha! I wonder what will happen now. It's pretty much been confirmed what the specs are now so hopefully nvidia will just come out and give us the specs!
