    Thanks a lot for the benchmarks! +rep
    I can't wait to receive mine, I'd like to see if the scores are the same with the 3610QM, 6GB of ram and a normal HDD (my specs)

    Correct on the non-overclocked 555M, I do not have one to add the results. I can only offer an apples to apples non-oc results from the M14x reviews online and show people what the 650M can really do. Would love for someone to add their 555M overclocked results!

    The 650m was running at 60°C max OC or non-OC?

    yes but shouldnt the 650 be more efficient? so that even when it downclocks, it wont cripple it like the 555m

    Non OC. After 1 hour of Metro 2033 overclocked (100% stable by the way) max temp was 65. My laptop is elevated on a cooling stand with fans directly blowing into the intake so I expect it will be hotter on a lap with air intake slightly obstructed.

    Not all that familiar with the 555M downclocking issue. What did you have to do to trigger this behaviour and I can give it a try later.

    it just downclocks it on battery and cripples it pretty badly.

    It's good to see such results! Thanks for the comparison:).

    When you have time if you could run Bf3 and Crysis 2, possibly to see what settings you can run the game at max.

    Hopefully with the 650M if I end up getting the R2 in September I can max out Mw3 without overclocking GPU ( I had to run 2x AA @ 720p and an overclock of atleast 735 MHZ to get 60-90 fps with dips to low 50s around smoke).

    LIttlezip - NM... found the tessellation and DF settings in your screenshot. Thanks!

    will post 555oc figures here shortly. The anandtech figures are old based on old drivers. We all know that drivers make a huge difference. So I will post stock vs oc (@750/1080) standard gaming clocks.
