    It's not that complicated. The first number indicates the generation of the part, the other two digits represent the relative performance position within that generation. You can reasonably know that a 560 will not be faster than a 485, but you can also reasonably know that a 560 should be faster than a 460, or at least on par.

    Where nVidia fumbles is sometimes they don't do anything to a part before bumping the generation number. OK so they tend to do that a lot.

    Since Sager is out of the 1920x1200 market I won't be getting anything from them regardless of the GPU.

    Another interesting material about 560m, nice and steady boost of 10% from 460m in most game titles. And it shouldn't be much more, i guess. It's not the top of the line performance card. Check out Here and the preview of MSI GT683R
    It's in german, but google chrome FTW)

    So 16591 in 3dmark 06 and 2200 in 3dmark 11 are pretty nice scores for a midrange card and gaming niche it was created for, i must admit! Hope to see some 5k runs in 3dmark 11 OC'ed in SLI)

    I'm sure it comes as no shock to anyone here that the 460M can run at the 560M's clocks just fine, I tried it for about an hour maxing the GPU to 100% utilization and no crash or excess temps.
    I've already made a vbios mod for it for fun, not suggesting everyone overclocks especially given that the 460M is decent in it's own right already but thought I'd give that mention.

    How do you explain the 3 or 4 cards that share the name GT 555M? ;)

    So the true successor to the GTX485 would be something like a GTX585.

    Thanks for clarifying this! :D

    I don't understand the question. What do you mean?

    Yes, it would.

    I'm sure I also wouldn't be shocked if the 560m overclocks as well as the 460m.
