The third and cheapest member of the GTX 400 series of top-end graphics cards from NVIDIA is launching when Computex gets underway; that being the GTX 465.
The first images of a final retail version of the card have leaked out from ASUS, including a box shot and also confirmation of specs. NVIDIA were quick to have the information and images pulled by the source, but thankfully other sites got hold of the good stuff before this occured.
Being one of the first GTX 465's out of the gate, the ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 is of course a referenced designed card. It uses a quiet carbon fibre theme with a basic ASUS logo stamped on it. The card is said to be about 10 inches long, which would make it slightly longer than the GTX 470 which seems a bit odd, but it may use a different circuit board. Time will give the answer on that one.
Specs match up with what we've been hearing recently; 1GB GDDR5 operating at 3206MHz on a 256-bit bus, GPU clocked at 607MHz and Shader clock at 1215MHz. The I/O is a standard affair, giving a couple DVI-I outputs and a mini-HDMI output.
ASUS will be shipping the card with its Voltage Tweak and NVIDIA Design Garage software.
