    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    So this laptop doesn't even last a year before being outdated.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.
