    20k Vantage GPU

    Stock clocks, impressive. Just need to wait for official driver support and GPU-Z/Trixx support.

    Just a heads up, that graph calls it 'Very High', but im pretty sure actually means 'Ultra'. There is no setting labeled Very High in the Skyrim launcher.

    I think you are right, 7970M will be $100 more than 675M according to Powernotebooks.

    ^^^That would be so wrong. :( Surely, you jest. I would hope that no members of this Community would do something so dishonest, as tempting as it might be.

    Sure Nvidia can do it, but Nbr members can't? Seems like a double standard going on here.

    oh man, don't :( some unlucky little kid who knows nothing about hardware will buy it happily only to discover he cannot max the upcoming AAA titles :(

    well, actually buying a 675m he is already ruining himself :D

    nvidia is not selling second hand

    Yeah but 675M = new while 580M not so much. Poor customers pay a lot of money for a product that is really 1 year old :)

    Everybody kind of decried this, but honestly as long as you say it is used there is nothing wrong with it.

    The 675m is a 580m. You could take a 675m and downflash it to 580m, nothing wrong with doing the reverse. Plus, if Nvidia makes any driver features 600 series specific your buyer would get extra value from you flashing it.

    As others have said Nvidia is doing it, so no reason you can't.
