    I did not say 'flagship', nor did I say the X80 was the flagship of the Maxwell line. The flagship doesn't matter, since I didn't mention it at all. I was comparing just a given generation's x60 mobile GPU versus the previous generation's x80 desktop GPU. Case in point: comparing the GTX 860M and the 780, 780 is clearly at least 2x as powerful (using Fire Strike scores).

    Now, based on the current GTX 1060 mobile's performance leaks, it nets a score of 11000 Graphics on Fire Strike. The 980 achieved ~12000. This is, whatever anyone says, incredible.

    I don't care which GPU the 1060 replaces, but within its own generation and for its TDP bracket, it is a winner.

    Also... no. The 970M achieved ~ 7500 on Fire Strike, the 780 achieved ~ 9500-10000. That's a 33% difference for the 970M. This is what I'm talking about.

    Why does everyone harp on: 'Oh, the 1060 replaces the 970M'? TDP and even chip-wise, that statement is wrong. 970M = GM204, ~ 80 W TDP. Its replacement ought to be GP104, not, as we claim, the 65 W GP106 in the 1060. Perhaps price-wise we may see a leap, but what can we do?

    Only a much lower sales of gaming laptops than expected can force lower prices. High sales only motivate to still have the same high prices. Same over all.

    Full 2560 core Pascal mobile GPU? With GDDR5X?

    My body is ready. So very ready.

    Sales of GTX 1080 laptops never get off the ground. Then NVIDIA says "oh our customers clearly aren't interested in desktop-class performance GPUs in mobile form factors anymore so with Volta GV107 will be the mobile flagship" Such would be our luck

    No GDDRX, just regular GDDR5. 2560 shaders but reduced clocks & TDP, nothing that can't be dealt with (i.e. overclocking through a custom vbios).

    For the record, my body is so very ready too. ;)

    Anyone hear about ASUS G752VM with GTX 1060? Apparently there will be such a laptop soon. Price wise it's around G752 with 970M.

    lers just wait and see IF the 1060 mobile will actually have a 65W TDP, cuz thats the key point here. 1070 mobile wih 2048 cores is already at 150W, 1080 likely at 175-200W. so 1060 might very well be around 80-125W!

    and it would also make sense, think about it: 1060 desktop has an "official" TDP of 120W with real life wattages reaching up to 200W when peaking. do u REALLY think nvidia will be able to shrink down TDP envelope that far and not completely cripple performance? no way, jose! thats why the 1060 replaces the 970M, because both the performance and the TDP would be in line with exactly that ;)

    Who started this "1060 is replacing the 970M" rumor, lol?

    You do know what replace means, right? Ha ha. :p

    The 1060 is not "replacing" or "succeeding" anything because there has never been a desktop x60 series card in a laptop before this year.

    The 960M is being replaced by a 1060M.
    The 970M is being replaced by a 1070M.
    The 980M is being replaced by a 1080M.

    The only difference this year is that there will be a "desktop class" 1060 and 1070 available in certain laptops, just as there was still a 980M and "desktop class" 980 available in laptops during 2015.

    The desktop card TDP's are far too high to replace everything as they are.

    Sigh. Wet blankets, wet blankets everywhere. And here I was hyped up for the 1060 notebook. My hype train has derailed, crashed and burned.

    Would there at the very least (possibly) be a P640RE refresh with the 1060? I just want my small, powerful notebook, that doesn't cost too much. Please, Clevo? Is that too much to ask? A $1500 14" notebook with the GTX 1060?
