    Does anyone know when the successor to the current Nvidea cards is expected to come out? Has anything been mentioned about them?

    So far Nvidia has used up their "refresh" with slower Max-Q GPU's, and since AMD didn't come out with anything faster than a 1080 with the current Vega line, Nvidia isn't really motivated to release anything faster.

    No need to drop prices either, so going forward it's likely going to be this way for another year, when both AMD and Nvidia have their next "process" ready - AMD 7nm and Nvidia 10nm.

    That is a bit sad but thanks for the info. I will just shelve the idea of refreshing my computer if there is no benefit to it. At least for another 12 months.

    You never know though, sometimes things happen quicker than expected, so keep watching the rumors headlines sites :)

    With 1080 in the P775DM2, am I correct in assuming you are looking to improve on the P375SM-A's aging 980M?
    I cannot imagine the 1080 not easily shredding almost anything you might want to throw at it now.

    Clevo wanted to purchase a 'new mobile chip' from NVIDIA this year, but had no interest in a BGA version and with their recent lack of MXM design support the deal just didn't move forward...

    Something other than Max-Q?

    Yes, but now we are going to be stuck with those +/- variants of the existing chips a while longer.

    I just saw where Nvidia is now putting higher performance GPU's "into" laptops by providing an external box:

    Nvidia shows off Titan Xp and Quadro external GPU solutions
    http://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/108514-nvidia-shows-titan-xp-quadro-external-gpu-solutions/

    NVIDIA External GPUs
    http://nvidianews.nvidia.com/news/n...ve-power-to-millions-of-artists-and-designers

    It looks like Nvidia has given up on higher performance internal GPU's for this generation.

    This is why I wanted AMD to turn the screw on Nvidia but it just is not happening.
