    That is very strange. All of them feature 700M GPUs, aka Kepler.

    I know for a fact that G750JM have GTX860M.
    There are also many models listed at various shops on the internet that have GTX 850M and a few with GTX 860M. But they are not G-series though.

    it says the GTX 860M will be announced the 12th of march :D
    with a score of P4800 (3dm11)..
    they are reporting what we already know as far as i can see..

    Good find sasuke :)

    So Clevo is reporting P4800 while MSI is reporting P5100 with GTX 860M. That makes sense since MSI runs the cards on slightly higher clocks than the rest. That means its roughly at GTX 770M like previously speculated.
    Only 8 days until they are launched now so reviews are not very far away. Eager to see power consumption, temperatures and of course overclocking. :)

    Guys do you think it is possible that a GTX 860 gets released on a native windows 7 laptop or are these days gone by and the only windows will be getting is 8/8.1.

    i expect you will find only win 8.1 laptops that use 860M a part from the clevo lappies (you can buy win 7 with all of their models:) )

    Guys do you think there will be any laptop manufacturers/re-sellers selling 860 SLI because I have only heard of SLI on x70 or x80 cards but not 60 except for the gtx 765 SLI being sold in AORUS 7 what do you think?

    Ladies and gentlemen, the day have come.
    The first ever look at GTX 860M. :D

    Let me just say this before I post the GPU-z and the benchmarks: This card is literally over TWICE as fast as the first Kepler graphic card we got.
    And it is indeed a 640 core Maxwell (GTX 750 Ti) like we speculated together earlier. :D


    GPU-Z of GTX 860M
    .
    (It does not read the core clocks correctly but you will notice that it have high voltage VRAM since they are running at a whopping 1254MHz something my GTX 770M can`t even do since I`m stuck with low voltage VRAM. Awesome!)

    3DMark11 Performance - GTX 860M
    (Notice the Graphic score...5157 for a low end Maxwell...OMG)
    [image=550]http://i.imgur.com/3ifUNmT.jpg[/image]

    3DMark11 Performance - GTX 660M
    (Notice the Graphic score of 2360. This is also a low end Kepler.)
    [image=550]http://i.imgur.com/PpaXziy.jpg[/image]

    3DMark11 Performance - GTX 770M
    (This card is a mid end Kepler which is overclocked compared to the mid end from 600M series. Treat it as such. Again, compare graphic score. Yup thats right, low end Maxwell beat OC mid end Kepler...!)

    Next up is 3DMark11 Extreme. I only have total score so not fully accurate but you should get a decent picture.

    Holy schmuckbuckets! Very impressive. Imagine these puppies in SLI (Aorus x7 refresh, come on baby!)

    The X score is what I was mostly interested in. Not sure the X GPU score of the 860m, but still overall score is pretty much in line with a 770m, although it's not much higher than the current 765m @ ~ 1500 only ~ 11% improvement compared with P score improvement of about 30%. Then again, if TDP is really only about 40W then it is overly impressive, and just imagine a die shrink.

    Yeah I`m extremely impressed as well. OVER twice as fast as low end Kepler which its meant to replace. They both should have the same TDP. Holy cow!

    GTX 750 Ti is running clocks at 1090MHz and score around 5700 in graphic score. Since GTX 860M is scoring 5200 we are probably looking at maybe 900MHz here?
    The important part is that GTX 750 Ti easily overclock to 1300MHz while running temps at around 70C. Could you imagine the extra performance you get from overclocking the GTX 860M from 900MHz > 1300MHz? :eek:

    Cloud you did it again and made us all proud.It seems your posts are way better than the so called writers who post whatever they see on the internet and claim they are experts:D. By the way the 900 mhz how did we know about that the gpu-z shows GPU clock of 540 and with GPU boost 2.0 how much gain in clock or performance should we expect?
