June 1, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

NVIDIA has launched the new GeForce GTX465 GPU priced at $300 at the ongoing Computex 2010 event in Taipei. The new price allows the GPU to compete with the ATI Radeon HD 5850 from AMD. The components present on other GPUs in the GTX series such as the GTX 470 and the GTX 480 are present in the GTX 465 as well, although the number of each component is lesser in the GTX 465.

It has 3 graphics processing clusters instead of the 4 graphics processing clusters present on the GTX 470 and 11 streaming multiprocessors while the GTX 470 and GTX 480 have 14 and 15 respectively. There are also 32 ROP units on the GTX 465 along with 352 CUDA cores and 44 texture units. It contains GDDR5 memory of 1 GB capacity and includes a 256-bit memory interface as well. Normal NVIDIA features such as 3D Vision and PhysX are also present in the GeForce GTX 465.

The GTX 465 is built using the same Fermi architecture that was used to build the GTX 480, but is priced less than the GTX 470 and GTX 480, which are sold for $350 and $500 through Newegg.
