    I just hope Maxwell and Broadwell end up as great as they sound. Maxwell top end mobile (880m?) should be about twice performance of 680m. Broadwell should bring some significant improvements in power consumption and likely powerful 35W quad core CPU's. Think 5-6 hours battery life with a top end mobile config (i7-5720qm/GTX 880m). Saving my pennies now for that, although will probably blow $1200+ with the new 13" Clevo when it comes.

    yea that is also my hopes for a single fan system that is about the form factor of a MBP to enter gaming ranks :) I would drop 3k on that without a second thought :)

    heres to holding out another year! :) ill definitely keep my machine. only thing that would get me to spend money is if one of the 780m/8970m gpus is compatible with hm clevos :D

    Maxwell is expected to be an 80% jump performance/watt so an 880m should be around a stock desktop 680. I'd also love to have IPS screens. Preferably 1080p,120hz IPS screens with 90% color gamut. :rolleyes:

    15% at best. 5-10% is what's realistic. Clock rates are staying the same as ivy across the board from desktop to laptop so the performance boost can only come from clock for clock improvements which are expected to be 10%. I've seen rumors that say there will be no performance increase and I also saw sources claiming up to 15% clock for clock. I'd expect that the doubling in cache speed would cause at least a 10% jump. We'll just have to wait and see.

    dont forget that haswell is a completely new architecture as opposed to IB vs. SB just being a die shrink with different transistors :) so i highly doubt that u can compare the clocks one to one with IB/SB. remember, the last time intel did an arch change when SB was introduced, the lowest clocking quad 2610qm was FASTER than the previous 940xm extreme cpu ;) that could very well happen again with haswell, so lets just wait and see what it brings to the table :)

    It was in comparison to Sandy Bridge not Ivy Bridge. Ivy is about 10% over Sandy, and haswell likely another 10% or so.

    Ohh yeah. I see now. Sorry HT! In that case 21-25% is well in the realm of possibility.

    Haswell isn't a new arch. It's just an upgraded Ivy bridge with twice as fast cache. 10% improvement really isn't that big. The real improvement are on the gpu which personally I don't care bout one bit. I'd prefer to have two extra cores and some extra cache in the gpu's die area.
    Skylake will be the completely new arch. With that we'll get hex core mobile cpu's......finally. Don't know why they don't do it with broadwell next year? :mad: They could easily make a hex core with 12mb cache if they left out the gpu. On the new 14nm process they could fit it into 57W as an XM cpu.

    Back from Cebit, saw the 780M.
