    The titan-x performs just fine with an 4870hq, i've tested it.

    601mm2 would be a record yes. I think its mostly about power and thermals if it can work in notebooks or not.
    A 2400-2500 core GTX 990M would not be hotter than GTX 780M.
    You have GTX 780M with the same core amount as GTX 680, 780M ended up as 105W while 680 was 195W.
    A desktop 2400-2500 core with smaller memory bus should hit the same TDP as GTX 680.
    Hence a mobile GTX 990M based on the same would be possible.

    GTX 480M is brought up time after time again as an example of doom, but nobody here knows if it was because of the architecture or 40nm process at that time. People think its because of the size but have nothing to back it up with. That Nvidia havent used bigger die`s since, could be because GK110 from Fermi was 250W and GK104 was 195W meaning no mobile can come between. With Maxwell it is GM200 at 250W and GM204 as 165W. There is headroom there for another mobile GPU.
    30W more, who knows what that could bring. But if GM200 is not too big, Nvidia have the means to use the broken chips where all the 3072 cores isnt functioning.

    I thought a 2048 core GM204 would be the most plausible scenario for the next upcoming card from Nvidia, but that one should only be 20-30% somewhere faster than 980M. Which isnt what Hasee is saying.
    We will see what will happen.

    Yeah I don`t think a mobile CPU will bottleneck it. DX12 will surely help not to mention notebooks with GTX 990M will probably have the highest tier Skylake CPU when its offered.

    I am glad that I didn't get my laptop upgraded to 980M last week :D

    I find it a bit strange how this one manufacturer is the only one that mentions the 990M. You'd think all of them in China (and wherever else) would be wanting to have NVIDIA's latest products. And if were informed of them, would also hold a press conference or release some article/information about it to benefit the shareholders. Unless this CEO obtained information illegally, is speculating, or was at a strip club with NVIDIA's CEO a few nights ago, I don't see why a single company in China would be privy to such information and others not.

    Anymore leaks from other sources?

    Hasee, "a big chinese notebook manufacturer"?

    They just sell clevo bare-bones with their own branding on the high end, not sure how that make them a manf.

    I'll wait and hope for a die shrink. I don't think an upgrade from the 980m is necessary in the near term. Modor is playable with most everything High/Ultra @ 4k ...ultra texture pack too and no overclocking.

    ...there too much untapped potential in the 980m at 1080p.
