And I still see this as a worthless upgrade from any 46X and higher GPU, since the only thing stopping 460s performance-wise is the lack of extra memory at higher resolutions, which the 560 ain't gonna fix.
Also there was an increase in number of texture units from 192 to 216 GTX 260, which is what's mostly responsible for the performance increase between them, and as far as I'm aware, there's not going to be any more texture units/ROPs on the 560, correct me if I'm wrong.
Obviously at release it won't be like current 460 pricing, I meant release pricing for both.
If the prices drop like the 460's did, that'll make it a win card for those wishing to upgrade from ~GTS450.
It is a worthless upgrade from 460+, I already said it's like the difference between a 260-192 and a 275, of which the increase wasn't justified by the money at all, unless you could just pay the extra and trade in.
The memory bus and size is limiting the 460 at higher res, but for a fully enabled core with the 560, it's still gonna be more than 10% faster and more powerful clock for clock than the 460, and faster except at very high res than the 470.
The 470 is a logical minimal upgrade from 2XX series (bar 295).
The GF104 had 384 cores, 64 TMU's, 32 ROPs but was cut down to what we see in the 460, so it'll have 64 vs 54 TMU's.
GTX 260-192 had 64 TMU's, 260-216 had 74, 275 had 80 I think.
