    And this is what is going in my Clevo P750ZM refresh, what I was waiting for. ;)

    If you paired both Titan X and 980M SLI with an identical CPU, say a 4790K, 980M SLI would just edge out Titan X. A lot of mobile CPUs, esp. of the BGA variety, limit 980M SLI at higher frame rates. 980M SLI also wins at 4K since that is much less CPU-bound.

    No it wouldnt. Single card always win over SLI when they have the same core amount.

    "GM200 too big for mobile"
    Where did you pull that statement from? The GM200 die is not too big for the MXM cards. Remove the black tape on the heatsink and you got an area big enough for 600mm2.
    Nvidia couldnt do GK110 on mobile because a full GK104 was 195W. A full GM204 is 165W. They have thermal headroom to use GM200 inside notebooka.

    "Zero financial sense".?
    You are pretty bombastic in your statements today Ethrem :)
    I can give you a reason: GTX Titan X 3072 cores. GTX 980TI is said to be 3072 cores too.
    What about all the GM200 chips that doesnt meet criteria to become a TitanX/980Ti with damaged cores? Write them off as a loss and toss it in the garbage or find a product they can use these damaged chips on ;)

    980M SLI has higher core clock, a wider aggregate bus and more ROPs

    Look at this: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-msi-gt80-titan-sli-review

    980M SLI beats Titan X in 5/9 games at both 1080p and 1440p despite having 3.8 GHz 4980HQ (if it doesn't throttle) instead of 4.6 GHz 4790K.

    It makes more sense to release full GM204 and release the GM200 rejects as other desktop SKUs. Big die size means that systems will have to have cooling redesigns to accommodate the larger size for just one card before Pascal comes. I think that's a dumb move. And again, releasing such a high performance card makes zero sense as it will set the bar for Pascal to be a ridiculously large upgrade or people will buy 990M and skip Pascal until the first rebrand or maybe even the second. If 990M is around the same speed of 980M SLI, Pascal is going to have to offer 4K @ 60FPS max settings to get people to upgrade, hence my "zero financial sense" comment. It's better for nVidia to waste the unsuitable chips than unnecessarily raise the performance bar for Pascal and potentially hurt sales of the new architecture, especially when they still have room to grow with GM204.

    nVidia is going to skip an opportunity to milk old tech? In a climate with no competition? I'll believe it when I see it

    I like this
    "He said Wu Haijun, Mars can also make efficient business notebooks"

    Either this whole conference is pure comedy or they have a different definition of Mars.

    @Ethrem:
    GM204 is used by many GPUs ranging from 1024 to 2048 cores. They cover the entire field so they can use broken chips on products. Products below are GM206 and GM107.
    The only GM200 is GTX Titan X. Which is a full GM200. You have to go all the way down to GM204 to 2048 cores to make a product. Everything between 2048 and 3072 does not exist.

    Do you see the difference? Not using these broken GM200 chips on a product "does not make financial sense"

    @octiceps:
    I was of course talking about chips clocked the same. You should know that Nvidia cards does not scale 100% in SLI.
    Go troll somewhere else with your condensending posts. 90% of your posts on this forum is just childish. About time you grow up.

    Im out. What a timewaste

    Hazzah, I was wondering when we'd start hearing some rumors about new chips around Computex time.
