    At CES, Lenovo intruduced their Y580 which is equipped with a gtx 660m.

    IdeaPad Y580 Specs, Reviews, & Latest News | Lenovo | The Verge

    A huge upgrade from the gimp gt 555m from the y570, same thickness at 1.4 in and same weight at 5.95 lbs

    I tried to look up the gtx 660m and apparently its the "successor" to the 560m, not necessarily rebranded. according to Nvidia 28nm Mobile GPU Plans Revealed | Best Gaming Laptop

    the gtx 660m would score 14,000 on 3d mark vantage.

    When this comes out is this the best graphcis card you can get for a 6 pound machine?

    I'm pretty skeptical about literally all of this.

    If this were true it would finally mean that one could buy a laptop and be able to play the newest games at high settings, without having to pay a fortune for it and fear of overheating components.

    I'm game :D

    In only a matter of less than a year, my GTX 460m is obsolete.

    Which is exactly why I'm skeptical of it. This would be close to something equipped with a 570M for under 900 bucks.

    The spec page clearly says that the 660m is optional.

    It doesn't make sense for a notebook to start at $900 and then give you an optional 660m upgrade for free does it? More likely $900 is for the base model and you you'll have to pay quite a bit to upgrade the GPU and CPU.

    i like how its much lighter than an asus g53 and an msi 663 and slightly less than the clevo p150hm. I don't like how its still pretty thick.

    A newgen gpu 660m comparable to a last gen 580m and 6990m which is pretty cool and very beleivable. this just means that msi,clevo,asus,alienware will have anywhere from a 660m-680m on their machines just like they are currently.

    well for desktop there isnt 6xx for a fact. kepler is 7xx.

    im not sure of the exact reasoning but probably because nvidia previous released a bunch of 6xx chipsets.

    Uhhhh...what? Kepler is the 6 series. There are some 6 series GPUs based on Fermi. There are always rebadged GPUs in every series. The GTX 6s will be Kepler.

    I'd have to see it to believe it. 660m having almost 2x the performance of a 560m is too good to be true, as much as I'd like it to be.
