Microsoft has uploaded NVIDIA's GeForce 259.47 WHQL driver to the Windows Update site. Interestingly, this new release contains reference to over a dozen of forthcoming mainstream and budget GeForce 400 series graphics cards, with more than half of them being notebook parts:
The GeForce GTS 450 (GF106) is rumored to arrive in September, this chip has 192 shaders, 128-bit memory bus, a 783MHz GPU clockspeed and 1GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 3608MHz, according to the rumor mill. The GeForce GTX 460M is also expected in September, but details about the other parts on the list are slim.

Do you know anyone with a 480M in their laptop? The mobile 4xxM series is practically nothing but paper. You can barely get the chip in two models of PC's and even those are not "available" most of the time.
Time for Nvidia to step it up. And the pricing and availability have to be ready to compete as well.
