    Releasing the same card with different names is bad. Releasing faster cards with the same name is confusing. Releasing slower cards with the same name is surely borderline fraudulent?

    With 96 cuda cores, the performance presumably won't be that much different than an 8800GT. £70 seems a tad overpriced IMO. Reviews may prove me wrong.

    I suppose since they never released the other version to retail anyway, then there isn't much of a big deal for the average joe buying, as they will only see reviews for this latest incarnation anyway.

    More to the point, the performance won't be *that* different to a GT240 (96 shaders, 550MHz core, 1350 shader) or GT430 (96 shader, 700Mhz core, 1400MHz shader). Sure the shader clock boost and faster memory will help, but it'd have to gain ~ 50% extra performance to catch up with a 5670. It makes no sense at all at £70...

    The GT440 also has only 4 ROPs.

    Thats atrocious, and NVidia have a right cheek to pull such a low blow.
    As per usual a total disregard for there consumers.
    Had they released the same spec as the OEM, I would have bought loads of them.
    But as it is is they can keep it, I wont be buying even one

    Very true, I would buy one of the OEM ones, and am still looking on ebay every now and again, this release makes my searching much more difficult.
