NVIDIA's latest member of the GeForce 400 Series is the GeForce GTX 465. The card is based on the same GF100 "Fermi" GPU as the more powerful Geforce GTX 470 and GTX 480. Specs-wise there are some big differences, especially the number of shaders and and ROPs has been reduced considerably to meet NVIDIA's price/performance target.
MSI is the first add-in-board vendor to send us a fully customized GTX 465 design for review. As the name suggests, their GeForce GTX 465 Twin Frozr II is using MSI's famous Twin Frozr II cooler design. All other performance related specifications remain the same as the NVIDIA reference design. Pricewise not much has changed either, MSI ask a very reasonable $10 extra for their own cooling solution.
