Customer possibly shipped a GTX 465 by mistake

Labeled as Galaxy GTX 470 but reads otherwise

There are very few times in life where getting something that's supposedly worse that what you ordered is a good thing. Receiving a video card that has not even been released yet could be one of those times. Imagine the surprise of the guy who was possibly shipped a Galaxy GTX 465, which is not slated for release until June 1st, instead of the GTX 470 he ordered.




He apparently became suspicious when he installed the card and the NVIDIA drivers would not take and he had to change the device id to get it to install. The card identifies with the reported GTX 465's lowered clocks and 1024mb of RAM. No pictures of the card's inside's yet or a true verification of a new card or a possible BIOS error, but you can follow his thread at the source link and decide for yourself.
