from the leaked benchmarks and Nvidia's actual statement, yes the GTX 460m is equal and made to be a competitor against the Mobile 5870.

Default Availability

I don't see this available anywhere in Canada except by one place to resellers and system builders and even then I don't know if they have stock. :/
