    Might have to wait a bit myself... Been hearing a lot of chat about Volta now that I've asked around. There are also reports of Samsung's production scaling up Q4 of HBM2 for NVIDIA's next-gen GPU's. I still think they'll have another Pascal series with HBM, but who knows at this point.

    More questions than answers at the moment. May have to hold onto my money.

    Splitting hairs about fuzzy quantities wording isn't very productive ;)

    These are raw stats, interpret as you want:

    GTX 970M ~= 57% of GTX 980
    GTX 980M ~= 73% of GTX 980
    GTX 1060 ~= 90% of GTX 980
    GTX 1070 ~= 127% of GTX 980

    Funny because that is the 14nm process of GloFo/Samsung used on AMD Greenland and CPUs!!! Imagine that, the process is that much better (possibly with hbm2), but AMD headed the budget route they decided to capture...

    Some form of Volta will probably tape out in Q1 2017.

    Hmm...My purchasing descision just got more complicated.

    I was planning to purchase a GTX 980m laptop like this MSI right here, but I'm hearing that these 10** series of mobile GPUs will come out soon.

    Do we know how these will compare in terms of price and performance to 980m machines like the MSI I'm considering? Worth waiting?

    Do we know which notebook was used in the 1060 firestrike score? I'm intrigued to see how far it will clock with an unlocked bios. At stock its on par with my mildly overclocked 980m!

    So, the mobile 1060 are 57% faster than the 970M, and 23% faster than the 980M.
    The mobile GTX 980 is 11% faster than the mobile GTX 1060.

    If it is true in real gaming benchmark, it is worth the upgrade from 970M then.

    Actually in the early days before drivers was released to make them hit those scores. Notebook check recorded 980 with i7 3770k at 12590 fire strike score
    1 thousand points difference isn't too far from the very 1stock 980. Much closer to it than a 970.
