It has been about two months since NVIDIA officially unveiled their first pair of DirectX 11 graphics cards based on the highly anticipated Fermi architecture, the flagship GeForce GTX 480 and the GeForce GTX 470. As is typically the case, when NVIDIA--or ATI for that matter-- releases a new high-end GPU, lower-end derivatives are eventually introduced to maximize utilization of available yields and of course deliver product at more cost-conscious price points. Today's launch of the new GeForce GTX 465 is just such a move. The new GeForce GTX 465 features the same GF100 GPU as its higher-end cousins, the GTX 480 and GTX 470, but a few of its functional units have been disabled. The result is a somewhat less powerful, but also less expensive, Fermi-based graphics card. Journey on for our full analysis of the product on the pages ahead...

I don't know. I appreciate there being a GTX card that's under 300 dollars but I'll spend the extra $50 to get the extra functionality.

There is a typo at the bottom of page 1:

Ultimately ,the GeForce GTX 265 has less compute power, a lower fillrate, and less memory bandwidth than the more powerful members of the GeForce GTX 400 series, but it also requires less power and cost less. Cards from EVGA and Zotac coming up next.

Completely not impressed.  $279 dollars for this thing?  I found several 5850's for $289~299 with a one minute search.  Add in eyefinity and 25 idle/50 max watts less power, I don't see a reason to even consider this card when a twenty spot more will get you the mid high-end ATI card.

I have a hard time really getting excited about these cards. They are not horrible, its just that the red team came out so strong this time around.

At least Nvidia users are getting more for their money now. 

Maybe they are finally figuring out that they aren't able to rape their customer base like they could two years ago.

Die hard Nvidia Fanboys sure are a funny creature! I think they are so intense because they feel they have to justify how they just spent twice as much for the same performance? It is good to see some healthy competition between the big two. I dont care what name is there, just give me performance that rocks, and is not going to be outdated two months from now.

I am sure in a few months they will be coming out with their 3D I-Nvidiaeye quadro-port cards!
