The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M is a dedicated GPU that’s placed in upper mid-range or high-end gaming notebooks and it’s part of the Maxwell generation GPUs from NVIDIA. In terms of performance, the GPU is right between GTX 960M and GTX 970M, but it has more common specifications to the GTX 970M and 980M. The GPU in the graphics card is the GM204 with the same manufacturing process – 28nm. The processing unit is clocked at 924MHz and can go up to 950MHz when more performance is needed.
The GeForce GTX 965M works with 1024 CUDA cores (shading units), 64 texture units and 32 ROPs. This GPU can be equipped with 2GB or up to 4GB of dedicated memory (GDDR5) along with 128-bus width and 2500MHz of maximum frequency capping 80.2GB/s transfer rate. Like all modern GPUs, the GTX 965M supports features like Battery Boost, GameStream, ShadoPlay, GPU Boost 2.0, PhysX, CUDA, SLI, GeForce Experience, but most importantly, the GM207 is the first chip that supports DirectX 11.2 API.
