    Maxwell is truly an amazing chip. Picked up an asus G750 with an 860m for some portable gaming aside from my 780ti sli desktop. With stock voltages and some tweaking i am able to match, or beat, the stock 870m and smoke the 770m. Check out my fire strike score, 4600 on the GPU. My max temps are in the upper 60's. Anyone else have an 860m? If i can get a modded vbios so i can change voltages I am sure I can take this thing to 880m levels.

    EDIT: with a modded vbios i hit over 5000 in firestrike!

    Hmmm. I am looking into getting a new laptop to replace my still faithful, but showing its age, p150HM, and I am wondering if I should take the 860m route now. I was looking mostly at the 870m, but those scores are really nice!

    Prema should be coming out with a modded vBIOS in the near future to push it past 135 core limit, but that is for Sager version only. As a beta tester, I'm up to max +280 on the core, even with the overvolt, which at max only really bumps it up to +0.0375V or 37.5mV, so doesn't help a whole lot. He may be able to help you out (and donations are of course welcomed) - visit biosmods.wordpress.com

    But +700!? I can't get past +180 on the vRAM! Asus may have used better memory.

    You need to extract it from your system bios first.

    The 860m represents what will be the minimum recommended speed of the next true generation for gamers.

    Good scores for a chip it's size but it will be crushed by the 880m in the 1080p extreme benchmark.

    @ over 2x the TDP, heck probably 2.5x the TDP. So sure I can see why.

    So with a modded vbios soon, im hoping i can get this card to run watch dogs. From what I have heard, even a stock 860m should run it on mostly medium with some high settings..
