Wait what? Why did they make a 460 and a 465 and they are BOTH competing against low end 5800s. The 465 can barely beat my old 285 and it uses more power and it has more SPs, and then this has 240 which means it will be less powerful than my 285, and it still barely uses less power. How does that work? When you reduce the transistor size from 55 to 40 nm you would expect nearly half power consumption for the same performance. How did NVIDIA manage to make Fermi so bad?
But on to this card. FAIL is still to light on it. 180W to compete against the 5770 which uses 108W. Nice. Efficiency Win. Not. And seeing how the 465 goes against the 5850 and 5830, I can't see this being a winner.
