    Yeah I know, but in credible 7 years, and go from 100W TDP to 4W TDP at 25 times more powerful. That's actually 625 times more powerful in 7 years, because 25 times more TDP x 25 times more performance.

    Although 9600MGT is only a 35W card (or 45W perhaps) from memory, not the 100W you mention. And your iGPU doesn't have 25 times more performance than the 9600M GT, the 970M does. Have I missed something, it is quite early here for a Saturday morning!?

    My 23 yo son is building a desktop. After learning (paying a little bit of attention) about Skylake and Pascal we decided to move up to the Skylake i5. He was going to get a GTX 970. He has an old monitor that is 900p so I convince him to back down to a GTX 960 and to save his pennies for the best bang for the buck will be when Pascal arrives. It saved him about $140 for now which he can use later. w00t!

    Great suggestion! 960 at 900p will be perfect match. Now just hold out for a year and then have an awesome Skylake i7 and high end Pascal and get a 2560x1440 or 4k LCD! :)

    I'm actually considering doing the same thing but with an X99 build because prices seem to be going down on motherboards. Been pricing builds... :cool: I'd get everything "good" except the GPU, in preparation for Pascal. ;) Skylake is not much of an improvement (performance wise).*

    *Skylake prices are also obscene. The 5820k is cheaper than the 6700k.

    My 9600m GT is 23W (not 35W, and certainly not 100W).
    As for 25 times difference... yes, that figure was for 970m when compared to 9600m (dGPU for dGPU).
    On the cpu scale alone, the multithreading difference in performance between P9600 and 4970S (for example) is 6 times (in favour of 4970S).

    Btw, my CPU (P9600) is 25W - so TDP-wise, HTWingNut, you're a bit off.

    Yes, I wasn't imagining things in my early Saturday morning waking hours then!

    I'd be making quite a bit of jump here as well.

    my nVidia T61 -> to Alienware 13 with GTX960M and i7 (hopefully 6500U) :D

    P.S. Cant find anything worth investing over at Lenovo these days, lol.

    "According to a report published by Business Korea, NVIDIA has selected Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to be the manufacturer of the Pascal GPU. TSMC and Samsung were previously both in the running for the contract, but sources tell Business Korea that Samsung is out of the running." -Source

    "Samsung and Hynix are planning to commence mass production later this year so NVIDIA will have the choice to select from two manufacturers while AMD is expected to stick with SK Hynix as their partner for HBM2 memory that will be featured on their Arctic Islands cards that are also suggested to feature up to 32 GB HBM2 VRAM." -Source

    Contradictory? o_O

    Wow, so going from 140M to 960M? Which CPU?

    Will be a huge change for me as well, from Clarksfield to i7-6700K and from 5830M to 980M.

    The new P50 looks nice!
