    Forgive me for my lack of knowledge. I have no idea about the gtx 560m but i just assume it is the top of the line now, above the 485m. Am i right?

    Should i delay my np8150 order and wait for the 560m?

    No, it is not even close to the 485m. The 485m is at least twice as powerful at the 560m. The 560m just replaces the 460m...

    Yep, NVIDIA's naming scheme bites the big one.

    One advantage the 560M will have over the 485M is the Optimus technology for allowing longer PC usage when on battery for the Clevo W170HM
    & Clevo W150HM models.

    The 400 series has Optimus too when in a machine with an Intel IGP as the output, exactly as the 500 series does, infact the 520M, 540M and 555M are based on GF106 like the 460M.

    I also wouldn't count on the 560M usurping those 3 cards in the current Optimus supporting Clevo's, the 560M is for MxM machines like the P150Hx, P170Hx.

    Hopefully one of the resellers can confirm if the Clevo W170HM
    & Clevo W150HM models support Optimus using the 560M.

    P151HM-NP8130

    Hello Larry,

    Thank you for the clarification. :) Can you answer if the models you listed will support Optimus technology using the 560M card?
