As for the naming convention, why the hell won't they just call it is GTX 265 or 270 so everyone can tell the difference?
They just enabled more shader processors and a few texture units. The GTX 280 still has more ROPs, fillrate, bandwidth... the stuff no one seems to talk about any more even though it obviously effected these benchmarks.
Still, this looks like a decent card if it isn't much more expensive than the current 260.
EDIT: The standard EVGA model is on newegg for $299 right now...
