However, the one difference is that there's a reason these chips were not put onto GTX470 cards, and that's because NV (or whoever decides) weren't 100% confident that 448 shaders would always reliably work on these chips.

Thus, I'd say there's at least some possibility that some of these cards won't OC like a 'real' 470, or even that some will simply crash once the unlocking is done whenever stress is put on the gpu by running a 3d app.

I see what you are saying, but these have been deemed gtx470 chips as they have the gf100-275 core and not the 465 gf100-030 core.

I would unequivocally agree with you IF these were gf100-030 cores that we were unlocking to 470's, but we aren't. We are just unlocking the rest of the soft-locked GF100-275's.

Well, I bow to your superior wisdom NC when it comes to the 465 unlocking process, what with you being in the vanguard of the unlockers here on OCN

So what your saying is that you're literally positive there was no 'binning' of these chips, caused by someone's 'concern' over whether or not these particular gf100-275 cores could safely and stably run 440 cores, which in turn led them to be soft-locked and used as 465's?

So your saying that the chips on these cards we're getting are 100% the same quality as those on any 470? It does sorta lead one to ask ... why weren't they just used on 470's then?

Also, NC, when you say WE ... does that mean you grabbed one of these GE cards as well? Or just that you've had gf100-275 cards?

I'm sure there was an in-house binning process to those vendors who chose to flash 470's to 465's, separate of nvidia's own binning process, to make sure they were maximizing profits. I was just saying that if these cores were defective or couldn't meet the standards of a GF100-275 core it would have been marked as such by nvidia to be labeled as a GF100-030 core.

Wow....this has received a lot more attention than I had expected. Albeit, it's mainly due to TwoCables and Kamakazi.

Let me know your number when you get it.

I'm glad so many people are getting these cards and are excited about it. I can't wait to get mine!

Hopefully OCN can pull together a large amount of the supposedly 2500 made.
