    Guys, I thought clevo's leak stated that gtx 800 series will be released in Feb not March:( . I am so frustrated and do not know whether to buy a gtx 770 laptop now or wait for 870? I have been waiting since 580's release...

    Def wait and see what happens. Nobody knows yet. If its not Maxwell, we might get hints when they could arrive and how long you must wait for them

    Larger dies are hotter, more expensive, lower yielding, lower clocking and harder to fit onto the package.

    Since 580? You must've saved up enough to get yourself quad-Titan or sth by now :D

    But then again what's a couple more months to.. 2.5 years you've already waited.

    People doubt Nvidia would stretch Kepler another generation, when we saw 8800M GTX -> 9800M GTX -> GTX 280M?

    Don't pretend they've never done it before. They are going to release something every cycle, whether they have new technology or not.

    The GTX 280m uses a 55nm G92b core (die shrink of the 65nm G92 core in the 9800m GTX) and chips like the GTS 260m used a GT215 core (i.e. Tesla, which was the newest uarch at the time). So it wasn't a straight rehash.

    The only time Nvidia went 3 generations without a new uarch was 8xxx->9xxx->1xx, and that was only because the 1xx was a short lived stop-gap gen. And those gens (i.e. 1xx, 3xx) have never had high end cards whereas the GTX 880m has already been leaked.

    Nobody is saying that there won't be Kepler in the next gen. Heck, the 710m and 720m are still Fermi. But it is very unlikely that there will only be Kepler in the next gen.

    Cloudfire, "Well we don`t have to wonder much longer. Benchmarks and full reveal coming tomorrow." I thought the big reveal was in CES in about a week, why tomorrow in particular? and by the way as far as notebookcheck is concerned gtx 680>870 could that be true:( ? if it is how can after 2 long years the second high end card (gtx 870) cant beat the 2012 high end card?

    Because a cut down version of a chip can't beat a less cut down one no matter what you call it.
