Though not as popular as the other GTX 400 cards, the GeForce GTX 465 has been taken under Inno3D's wing and given a quite unique cooling solution meant to drive its temperatures lower than what the stock solution can manage, while still providing a high level of performance.
With the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 catering to the enthusiast-grade market, the GTX 465 was designed to address the segment of consumers just below that.
Thus, it was built with the same GF100 GPU as its siblings, only it has a toned-down set of specifications so as to achieve a lower price point.
It is this card that Inno3D took and transformed into the dual-slot, DirectX 11-capable GeForce GTX 465 OC Vapor Freeze.
Said list of specs includes, in addition to the aforementioned GF100 clocked at 700 MHz, 352 CUDA cores and 1GB of GDDR5 memory, whose frequency is of 3,400 MHz.
Furthermore, the board comes with a memory interface of 256 bits and a shader clock of 1350 MHz, plus the inherent support for the SLI multi-GPU technology.
It is the cooling solution that truly sets this model apart from its rivals, and also the feature that gave the new card its name.
Inno3D used five copper heatpipes as the means to draw heat away from the GPU, and a 92mm PWM fan in order to disperse that heat once it reaches the heatsink.
Also, the sound output of the fan itself, 18 dBA, is quite noteworthy, especially knowing that its rotary speed can go from 1000 RPM (rotations per minute) to a full 4,200 RPM.
Finally, the newcomers is outfitted with dual-DVI and mini HDMI outputs, making it compatible with a wide range of displays.
Unfortunately, pricing details have not been disclosed. Nevertheless, until they are made public, one need only visit the official product page
should they wish to see the full list of features first-hand.
