IS the GTX 480 Special Edition same redesign as the 480 SOC?

24 Jun 2009
The one talked about in this article. This looks like a really good alternative to the 580 looking at power consumption, temps, performance. AT best it is a little off. Of course that's the SOC so perf is higher.

But given that the SE sold here http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-078-GI&groupid=701&catid=1914&subcat=1750
IS a lot cheaper than the 580, it would be really worthwhile if it has similar power/temp and overclockability.

In fact, even without the overclockability it's probably a great buy.

Anyone know if that this SE is a standard clocked version of that GA GTX 480 SOC?
