looking good(the review part) :)

the figures are quite something. do you think drivers in a month or two will squeeze more?























edit

was also looking at tpu's zotac review..they used different drivers..soo..apples to some apples i guess





















altough i was expecting performance per watt to be much worse

Good job on the review.
Not sure what to think of this card.
I also read the the pc per review and it leaves me alittle confused.

Nice review!

Seems like you were busy writing this while people were still focusing on other topics!

HWC seems to be one of the very first review sites to get it's hands on this new card (GTX465). This is a very good sign!!!

At least, you're secure from the nVIDIA "blacklisting" spree tho! You present objective reviews without omitting talking about feature sets and stuff.
Every review sites that don't want to be excluded from nVIDIA's contact list have to say good stuff on their cards or they will play XBIT or HARWARESECRETS on you (both sites that didn't present nVIDIA favourably in the last little while).

Well done reviews :)

I'll refrain from commenting on the product itself.

EVGA has been backed into a corner by the $280 starting price of a reference GTX 465 and ended up releasing a pre-overclocked card that canít quite compete against a similarly-priced HD 5850.
Case closed for me.
Thanks SKY, as usual a thorough and honest radiography for a graphic card.

Good review, fail card. Performs worse, uses more power, and costs the same as a 5850. No thanks.

Reading over the other reviews, is it just me or did the majority of them use the same benchmarks and then came to the conclusion that the card was priced well? Seems RE5, HawX and Far Cry 2 are culprits there...

Kind of disappointing, I mean why get a GTX 465 when you can get the 5850 for roughly the same cost (or about $10-$20 more for the 5850). From your and others reviews the 5850 beats it hands down.
