So if I'm reading the other thread correctly, these have higher clocks, but less shaders than the 768 version? If so, not for us folders.

Considering that you can easily get higher clocks on current 460s, this is especially true.

What are the specs?
The GeForce GTX 460 SE has 228 CUDA cores running at 650MHz graphics clock and 1300MHz processor clock. It has a 256bit frame buffer interface with 1GB GDDR5 running at 3.4Gbps.
So since NVIDIA answered the question, does it come with 288 CUDA cores or 228 CUDA cores? SKYMTL and FixT said it comes with 288, and it only makes sense if it comes with 288 CUDA cores as 228 is I guess, impossible to get.

Why did you call this product GTX 460 SE instead of using a new number like GTX 455
The GTX 460 SE will deliver a GTX 460 class gaming experience. Using a number like 455 would imply a worse gaming experience which is not really accurate.
Then please explain why the GTX 460 1GB does better than the GTX 465, yet it's priced cheaper and named lower.

Apparently I should have better editted their response. They seem to have the same fellow updating their website as they do answering questions.

It is definitely, 100%, 288 Cores
