    Actually I think the GT 635M should be faster or very close to the GT 650M.
    635M is no Kepler but a rebrand and is basicly a rebranded 555M and with two versions, one with 128bit and another one with 192 bit memory bus

    The GT 555M is like 30% (sometimes more) faster than 550M. I don`t know how much faster the 650M will be compared to 550M but it have to perform quite a bit to surpass the 635M (555M).

    If the 635M ends up being faster than the 640M and 650M, Nvidia will have crossed into a new plane of ridiculousness.

    You want to talk about confusing customers? Bigger means better, not slower.

    If you compare the picture of the N13P-GT (650m kepler codename) with the specs of the N12P-GT (550M), you might see some similiarities... Also this underlines that the codename n13p-gt might be very real!

    Check out the text from the source of the picture!

    Source: Samsung Laptops Show New NVIDIA 600 Series Mobile GPUs - Bright Side Of News*

    In the original article they compare the specs to a 630m, which is in another samsung notebook next to the n13p-gt notebook.. But now compare the specs to the N12P-GT

    The 550m is basically an overclocked 540m (which the 630m is a rebrand of) thats why the similiarities in the article

    Code:
    GeForce GT 550M 96@740MHz
    Codename	N12P-GT
    Pipelines	96 - unified
    Core Speed *	740 MHz
    Shader Speed *	1480 MHz
    Memory Speed *	900 MHz
    Memory Bus Width	128 Bit
    Memory Type	DDR3/GDDR5
    Max. Amount of Memory	1536 MB
    Shared Memory	no
    DirectX	DirectX 11, Shader 5.0
    technology	40 nm
    Notebook Size	large
    Date of Announcement	06.01.2011
    So if we look at the charts again, we see that the refresh or followup of the 555m (codename N12E-GE-B) isnt actually the 650m, but rather the 660m (Codename N13E-GE)!

    Only true if the codenames are real, but the article from the samsung notebooks may indicate that they could certainly be true

    I see what you are saying.

    The 555M is now the 635M.

    I would figure the 650M will be the replacement for both the 550M AND 555M from the last generation.. And i think a lot of us figure it will be on-par with the 560M from the last generation.

    The 660M/670M/675M and Later 680M will improve upon the segments that the 500 series GPUs all occupied.

    guys, im not hoping that the 650m will be weaker then the 635, and obviously the 640m and 650m should be stronger since they have bigger numbers

    but for me it looks like the 650m is just a die shrink of the 550m, I do think it brings more perfomance, but how much more is the question? It looks like kepler is faster clock-per-clock but atm we can only guess how much faster kepler really is.. We will just have to wait and see

    And like I said, based on the facts I have posted, I think the real follow up for the 555m isnt the 650m, but rather the 660m, since the Codename and TDP fit the description.

    BTW, another problem might be availability

    Check out these current article on NVIDIA

    I don't think anyone thought you were advocating for a backward naming-convention. I think we were just confused a bit.

    nVidia has a very long, proud, tradition of screwing the pooch on product names. I mean.. Surely an 8800-GTX is Faster than a GTX-280? Right? oh.. Wait.. How about a GeForce 405, has to be a LOT faster than a GeForce 295.. I mean.. its a whopping 110 more!!

    :) HA!

    As far as bigger=better goes, you have to understand one thing, which is that the first digit can more or less be ignored when comparing unless you're looking at cards from a good few years back. For example, a 580 is only a little faster than a 480, but the 480 would completely destroy a 520.
