We have been discussing the 480M for some time now on the Notebookreview forum (I hope you don't mind posting a link here):


At this point no one is sure how well the 480M will perform ... given that power efficiency is not very good for the GF100 core: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_465/30.html.

It is funny how the 2x0 series which is 55nm is almost as power efficient as the 4x0 series which is 40nm.
