    No, but it would help. Point being is that you can't design and produce a PCB and case with the components you want on a hobbyist budget.

    860m will likely have a slightly higher base clock than the 765m, sure, but that doesn't mean it isn't the same chip with similar OC abilities. Would be nice if they gave it 2500MHz vRAM though.

    So know we know the 880m is a rebadge should i wait till it comes out and get a clevo with 780m for cheaper or get the 880m?

    I should hope so. Otherwise, they will look like massive idiots.

    I feel you man. Makes me sad to see them doing this. Milking the cow until 20nm is ready.

    Sadly I`m here with more dissappointing news. :/

    All aboard the rebrand train



    7970M: 850MHz/1200MHz
    8970M: 900MHz/1200MHz
    R9 M290X: 950MHz/1250MHz

    Well given that my 780M's don't really run stable at 954MHz, I'd say having those clocks at stock isn't half bad :rolleyes: Wish I had a nice pair of 780M's so I could spit on the rebrand too :D

    Jesus F**king Christ. So, both the big players trolling us with rebadging for H1 2014. Screw them. So, at the end of the day, nVidia will probably have the performance crown. Our only hope, it seems, is for MX versions of the nVidia cards.

    I'm confused. Who cares if they are labeled MX or M? It's the same damn thing. 880m is already a rebadge, why shouldn't the others be 8xxM as well?

    An MX version may actually be new architecture.

    In the same way 680MX was a new architecture over 680M? Oh wait...

    Yep, both AMD and Nvidia will rebrand the top cards. 7970M rebranded the third time, 780M the second time.
    A comedy indeed :/

    I think GTX 880M is based on B1-stepping just like GTX 780 GHz card. Both running at 1GHz because B1 stepping is more stable.


    It was a new card different than 680M (1536 cores). GTX 670MX and 675MX was Kepler while GTX 670M and GTX 675M was Fermi.

    This could be a way to introduce Maxwell without going to the 900M series
