Wow, thats a big difference.

And is the new version not on Amazon? I can't find it there.

Supposedly the ram is differnt too.... it doesnt make much differnce (around ~5% performance gained) but apparently some think its enough to just barely be noticeable in games (fewer dips, not quite as low dips in fps).
