    I haven't bothered to ask those that would know. Sorry, means I know nothing ATM.

    Good news, if any... I will happily take GTX980+ level performance in my laptop if Polaris MXM delivers :).. Big IF though..

    I would take those benches with a grain of salt. The poster also mentioned that those were not likely top clocks for Polaris. Plus we don't know how Polaris will perform in actual games and pro software. I guess we have to wait and see, but I'll gladly take furyx performance in a laptop

    For me those benches look realistic with the exception of that underwhelming crossfire set up. Keep in mind, VC also provided benches for 1080 about two weeks before the announcement and they proved to be true. As for performance, we can expect Fury (non X) level of performance straightaway, so some OC should make it to fury X levels:)

    Not too much longer to wait now, AMD's Live webcast from Computex starts on May 31st, 10 PM EST (June 1st in Taiwan).

    Uhm... as even the poster himself stated... benchmarks like these are done with samples running at relatively lower clocks...
    Furthermore, we know benchmarks aren't indicative of real life performance.
    All in all, we don't have a complete picture as of yet.

    Clocks don't seem that far-fetched to me... 1250-1300 was the rumor for P10 (1250 specifically) and P11 is rumored between 800 and 900 (850 specifically). Not too long to find out.

    However, rumors are one thing, verified evidence is something else (people have been putting up all kinds of unsubstantiated articles based on rumors and ignoring actual info coming from the companies themselves.
    Who is releasing the rumors in the first place? Do we have any reason to think they are genuine?
    14nm is a more efficient process, so there might be a possibility we will see higher clocks in play.
    Either way, we won't know more until likely next week, or possibly later.

    Not too far away now, lets wait instead of speculating.. Hope AMD can blow us away.. But lets see.. They haven't properly released a MXM GPU since 2014..

    Wait is too long!! Really want a lower power part (80W max) with gtx 980 performance out of the box! Fingers crossed!!
