The GTX 470 SOC is roughly 10% faster than the stock version (700MHz vs 600MHz) so the cards would be equal in terms of performance if we follow that graph.

Take into account the super quiet aftermarket cooler on the SOC + a card chosen for OC which could easily reach 800MHz and you get a better deal imo.
