NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 leaks, gets benchmarked

Details of NVIDIA’s upcoming mid-range Fermi based video card – until now known as the GeForce GTX 460 – have leaked, with Chinese site eNet claiming to have acquired a GF100 GPU based video card.  According to their sources, the chip will show up in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 on June 2nd; they’ve also been testing it, discovering that NVIDIA have disabled several elements of the GPU (the GF100 also powers the GTX 470/480) including limiting stream processors to 352 and RAM to 1GB.

There’s also a 256-bit memory interface, while clock speeds 607MHz for the GPU, 1,215MHz for the shaders and an effective 3,206MHz for the GDDR5 RAM.  In contrast, the GeForce GTX 470 launched earlier this year has 4480 stream processors, 1,280MB of memory and a 320-bit interface, along with a faster memory clock speed.

They’ve also been benchmarking the leaked card, pitting it against ATI’s Radeon HD 5830 and HD 5870.  The GeForce GTX 465 apparently was faster than the HD 5870 in Far Cry 2, “significantly” slower than the HD 5830 in Crysis Warhead, and fell in-between the two in the Heaven benchmarks.

Price is tipped at around $300 and the new card is expected to launch at Computex.
