GTX460 vs GTX465 Folding PPD

Postposted on Thu Dec 09, 2010 1:31 pm

It is my understanding that the GTX460 was slightly neutered vs the 465 to enhance gaming architecture at the expense of GPGU architecture ex Folding@Home.
Has anyone seen a comparison of PPD of 460 vs 465

I am willing to give up a few frames per second in return for a measureable increase in Folding PPD. THOUGHTS!

Further, the GTX465 I ordered has a Mafia2 and Just Cause 2 coupon and it was only $175 shipped.

They are just about identical, with there being variance for different WU's. A little more than 10k ppd.

The GTX465 also draws noticeably more power than standard GTX460s, and runs warmer. Something to consider.

Yes, I'm aware of the shortfallings of the 465's architecture but I'm getting two games free (*Mafia 2 and Just cause 2) and am hoping that the folding @ home ppd will be higher due to the better GPGPU Cuda architecture. (Total price was $175 with about $60 or $70 worth of games).

The two free (good) games it certainly a nice bargain.

I personally upgraded from a Radeon 4890 to a GTX460. When gaming, I swear I noticed about a 5 degree dip in temperature in my room. Hopefully the GTX465 doesn't get too warm for you when folding 24/7. Then again, maybe you need a heater in the winter!
