    Cliffnote: nVidia renames the current 9 series mobile GPUs, which in turn were re-named from the 8 series, to the GTX/GTS/GT/G 100 series.

    • The GTX series are using the current GPUs found in the 8800M/9800M.
    • The GTS series uses the same GPU found in the current 9700M GTS.
    • The GT series carries over the same GPU found in the current 9600M series.
    • The G series will use the same GPU as the 9300M/9400M.

    And here I was thinking that we'd be getting a new core.
    Nope, just a rename.
    Like how my 9500M GS is a G84-core 8600M GT in everything but name.

    It will JUST be a rename, no changes at all?

    I thought there were some changes from the 8000 to 9000 mobile GPUs, that they emit less heat, not prone to the failures some 6000-8000 series GPUs have had like with the 8400M GS in the XPS M1330s??

    Actually yes, there were changes for the low-end and mid-end GPUs for the 8 to 9 series transition, which was the die shrink going from 80nm to 65nm. The architecture stayed the same, just a smaller die footprint. The only exception to this were the 9500M series, which still used the G84.

    Unfortunately as far as we know, the GPUs for the new 100 series are the same.

    Hurry up ATI and release your Mobility 4800 GPUs and give Nvidia something to really sweat about. They have a total monopoly on the gaming laptop market. Give them some fierce competition just like you have in the desktop market!!!

    Will if you really think about it current high-end GPU's of today are way ahead of their time anyhow and can handle what you throw at them reasonably well, so there really isn't a need to push it much further until Directx11 comes out. At this point it’s all about just refining/improving the existing hardware which happens to be sufficient for today’s standards. What’s the point in releasing more and more powerful cards year after year when games and applications aren’t moving at the same pace in order to push the hardware to its limits and make them obsolete?

    For example let’s say if the upcoming Nvidia line for performance cards were significantly faster than the current Geforce 9600M/9650M series and were to completely replace them in performance to a degree to match a 9 series high-end card, then people would just cheap out and purchase these performance notebooks compared the more expensive high-end laptops with the new cards, because games and applications of today wouldn't be up to speed with what the high-end cards have to offer and would run more than adequate on the performance cards for the fraction of the price of the most powerful option.

    Hey , I gave a look to DEV ID and... they seem to be completely NEW CARDS!
    for example 060C=8800M GTX ; 060B=9800M GT ; 0617=0608=9800M GTX
    Nothing of them are reported in IDs posted, so...maybe it's more than a simple rename, maybe new cards or at least NEW BIOSES!!

    In my opinion:
    0618=NEW 9800M GTX @ 55nm and
    060A=NEW 9800M GT @ 55nm (because now GT's are not produced anymore)
