what is the real difference between a gtx 460 and a gtx 560 (non ti). is it just about power consumption and some minor clock speed differential?

Their cores are actually the same from a quantitative/logical standpoint. See the table on the first page:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-560-amp-edition-gtx-560-directcu-ii-top,2944.html

The big difference is that the 560 is clocked higher(and can be overclocked higher) and uses less power at comparable clocks.
