    Are you sure? Where can I find more info on this? As far as I know, rops have been de-attached to a particular dependency, because you can see AMD Cards with 384 bit bus and 32 rops (tahiti). Or maybe the dependency is only due to design from nvidia's part? (Then again, R9 290x does have 64 rops with 512 bit bus)

    Nvidia have never deviated from that ratio.

    Makes sense. Though it is not fixed as a rule, it is a design choice. And yeah I did notice all their GPUs follow that ratio.

    I got a 770M in my Dell M6700 which is great. I'm looking at a 870MX would TDP be about 75 instead of 100 like the 870M do you guys think?

    Also do you think MXM 3.0B will still be used with this line of cards?

    For maxwell it should be. For broadwell maybe not! Although I like to hope they keep the MXM 3.0 B form factor and connector and just change a few small things to make it backwards compatible

    This is very interesting.

    There is a rumor going on a chinese MSI forum that MSI GT72 will be listed both with GTX 970M and GTX 980M on October 11th.
    The NDA might end then.

    Makes sense regarding the October availabilty I talked about earlier. Cheers :)

    Let say it does come out would the current MSI GS60/70 Stealth Pro, Gigabyte 35w v2 and its barebone variants be able to have a 970M? Or no due to needing a new motherboard to take advantage of the new architect?

    It will be compatible. The socket did not change. It will probably change with Pascal.
