Point of View GTX 465 review

In this review we will get acquainted with one of the representatives of GTX 465 graphic cards — Point of View GTX 465

Technical specification

Clocks and performance config of Point of View GTX 465 are typical for all reference design GTX 465 video cards:

Info about GTX 465

GTX 465 is the youngest model of the graphic card series, based on unified GPU GF100. Three high-end model mainly differ in performance config, the amount video memory — and as a consequence, memory bus width:

We don’t know how GPU selection is made and performance config is reduced — on the strength of core validity or maybe other criteria, however, our attempt to modify GTX 470 and turn it into GTX 480 by flashing BIOS was not successful. This time we have GTX 465 video card and later we will check whether it can disguise as a senior models.

Reference design  GTX 465 graphic cards from different manufacturers only differ in stickers and package content in some cases. Lets see what Point of View offers.
