Default Re: GTX 460 preview

this is how I see it

points for:
- it's a new design
- will run cooler just because it's smaller
- all rumors say 300+ shaders (it seems the 256 shader part was canceled)
- heat generated by a chip is logarithmic rather than linear (i.e. 10% reduction in size nets greater than 10% reduction in heat)

points against:
- efficiency questionable (might have taped out shortly after GF100, leaving no time for massive changes)
- Nvidia has had questionable execution lately
- has not been officially confirmed by Nvidia, might prove to be false or inaccurate

regardless I probably should have posted this in the 'rumor mill'
