i think so too, but would be interesting if it would be possible, getting a gtx 470 for a whole lot cheaper price

but the 465 uses the same pcb as the 470 so it could just be a miss or something

lol dude the GTX 465 performs worse than the GTX 460 1 GB :S lol. But.. Yeah if that would be true it would be epic.

it's actually true if you have the right core and 10 memory chips. I believe the core is the same as the gtx 470

Not to stir anything up, but, I snagged a PNY 465 on the cheap recently then stumbled upon these rumors. After a bit of research, I have successfully unlocked the cores of a Gtx 470 changing my Gtx 465's original 352 to 448.

With that came an additional 1k marks in vantage that I didn't get before.

However, I have not opened the card to see if the ram chips are there to try flashing it to gain access to those as well. I have a pretty severe Pandora's box situation when I tinker too much.

I am quite happy with it as is though, I don't do a lot of heavy gaming so it sits well and is fairly inline with the rest of my PC.

Yeah, its real. From what I've read though it is risky to flash the card because if the extra shaders aren't functional it bricks the card. You can reflash it so it works again if you have onboard graphics or another card and 2 PCIEx16 slots but if not I wouldn't risk it.

You might not need to open the HSF to see the chips, look at the back of the card and check that all the memory chips are evenly and properly soldered off and had the appropriate bridges for the memory on the back of the card.
