    Got hold on some juicy information.

    It is from Clevo`s roadmap and it shows the different models and their configurations. GTX 880M will actually have 8GB of GDDR5 (!).
    And since they are coming out in February, 2 months from now, I am pretty sure they will 28nm.

    Anyhow, a ton of 800M cards is coming out in February 2014. GT 840M, GT 850M, GTX 860M, GTX 870M and GTX 880M. Man this is exciting :)

    That's interesting! I'm pretty sure they'll be 28nm from what I've read too. I wonder how they can justify 8GB on a GPU, because I can't imagine the cards being that much more powerful than the 780M if they're on the same process (28nm), because then the only difference in performance can be down to the architecture differences between Kepler & Maxwell (since the 780M is already at the TDP limit). When they shrink it to 20nm and increase the number of stream processors by nearly a factor of 2, then 8GB starts making just a little more sense.

    the gtx 860M is equipped with 2gb GDDR5 or 4gb (MXM and On board..)
    I think we can expect GTX 765M performance + 10%.

    So this laptop doesn't even last a year before being outdated. Goshdarnit all. Why must I be unemployed? WHY? WHHHYYYY???

    Maybe I can just stick a GTX 880M into this here laptop... will need that BIOS mod though!

    I was thinking the same thing, But could not wait any longer. Kudos I have the same laptop as you :) Mine is a renamed model though. Only ordered last week, still waiting on it. Have you tried out Svl7's new bios for it yet?

    The lack of a Maxwell W230ST refresh is dissapointing.

    No Clevos for me then :(

    The GTX 780M BIOS? Yes, yes I have. It's brilliant. Highly recommended! What I love about it is that it dramatically improves the behaviour of the GPU boost feature - clock rates are more consistent and stable, less jumping all over the place. The overclocking/voltage adjusting works fine.

    Right. I was hoping for some 865m which was ~770m performance.

    It's not like our 780M is gonna be outdated. You're over exaggerating now. Just like the 680M and 7970M still manage to hold up.

    GTX 780M can hold up 2 years @ ultra and then starts to "go down" to high and medium !

    Nice to see some Kabini options too. :) I just hope they're priced appropriately.

    Although I don't think we'll see the gains we were expecting from Maxwell, primarily due to die shrink. I was waiting for something ~ 2x the performance of the 680m with the 880m to go forward with my SLI setup. I may still have to wait until end of 2014 for that.

    WHOA! Nice! 860m may likely just be a rebranded 765m though, perhaps slightly faster. But the nice thing is the screen, it's 2x 1600x900 which means scaling games to 1600x900 should look great and perform well at that res with the 128-bit GPU. I may be upgrading sooner than I thought. ;)

    But where did you find that info?

    Looks like the 570WM gets to keep going at least, I wonder if it will require a new motherboard revision.

    Advanced earphone/headphone jack? What does that mean? Full colour keyboard? Other colours than the ones available? Full spectrum? :D
    But cpu is apparently still haswell :p

    Of course it is, broadwell is still half a year off when these launch.

    To be honest I'm not all that excited. It's still Haswell, and first rev Maxwell will likely be only a minor boost over 7xx series.

    Only thing I'm excited about is the W230SS with the 3200x1800 screen. Maybe it will be an update option for the W230ST and I'll just swap out the screen then.

    Why so down about maxwell? Process changes usually give the biggest boost to notebook performance.

    Ah just saw the first ones may be the same process, I would expect about 20% from them then.

    It may be that the true 780M successor takes a little longer and will be 20nm.

    And my P170SM with 780M arrives today... I guess I will have the top end gpu for two months.

    So, since we know this is 28nm, do we have a idea of real gamer perfermance difference between 780M and 880M? Is Meakers guess of 20% a good guess?
