NVIDIA Shipping GeForce GTX 465 Using Binned GF100 Chips

There are usually a certain percentage of parts during any manufacturing process that don't perform up to specifications. In the semiconductor industry, many of those parts will end up being speed-binned and set aside for use in less stringent applications.

Binning certainly has its place in the world of GPU's and CPU's. Sometimes you get a lot for your investment this way!

Should point out that in spite of their significantly lower performance than the 480 and 470, these cards have about the same TDP, so performance per watt in this case is rather terrible.

A lot of heat and power used for bad performance? Sounds like American television.
