Crysis: Warhead

Kicking things off as always is Crysis: Warhead, the toughest game in our benchmark suite. The GeForce GTX 465 trails the Radeon HD 5850 by about 4fps at every resolution. This translates to within 91% and 82% of the 5850’s performance, with that gap increasing with resolution. Ultimately NVIDIA just misses the sweet-spot at lower resolutions. Meanwhile the minimum framerates are almost tied with the 5850, which is roughly what we expect based on the fact that the GTX 465 doesn’t have a memory capacity advantage like the GTX 480 and 470.

Meanwhile compared to the GTX 470, the GTX 465 is between 20% and 27% slower on average FPS, and 18%-32% slower for minimum framerates.

    I would like to know why you didn't benchmark a GTX 465 SLI? Reply

    We only have the 1 card. Reply

    Still satisfied with my GTX 285 I bought in February 2009, and these benchmarks support me. Reply

    Under load, GTX465 "drawing 17W less than the GTX 470 and 72W more than the 5850"
    It is different than the chat indicate.
    The label for 5870 , GTX465, GTX470 must be switched by accident.

    The GTX465 is physicaly identical to GTX470.
    You can overclock it at least to 750MHz. You can flash 470 BIOS and achieve same thing as with unlocking Phenom's cores. And i couldn't find a word about it in all pages.
    This makes this card much more interesting then anything from AMD.
    Actually it is even more interesting then 470. The price is 70$ lower.
    I'd like to see research on these "features". Let's hope someone is already working on it ;)

    - cannot guarantee an OC that high when looking at the variabliity of the chips

    -cannot guarantee unlocking extra areas of the card since these are clearly harvested from "bad" 470/480's

    -power consumption/noise is already quite bad and doing either of the above would make this even worse.

    It would have been interesting for it to be mentioned in the conclusion however as a POSSIBLE plus.

    I think that the GTX 465 isn't that fast compared to 5850. The tests were done using catalyst 10.3a. I saw benchmarking done with catalyst 10.5 and differences were wider. The GTX 465 lagged behind the 5830 in many cases forget the 5850, which proved to be a bit too mighty for the newcomer 465. So I don't agree completely with the conclusion that 465 offers same performance to price ratio as the 5850. Reply
