    Do you mean that GX serie is victim of it's succes? Some GX are on Kaveri Cpu FX 7600P, but they are difficult to find.

    I got carried away by saying i will sell my GX this christmas. I will not have enough money to by a new computer right now.
    But my next one will not be limited by the CPU. When you have CPU bottleneck, there's nothing to do but throw the game in the bin.

    GT72 has more storage options (PCI-e in the latest models), G-sync IPS displays, display outputs connected to the dedicated card, support for nvidia GPU upgrades, unlocked CPUs are officially offered. Combine this with a larger power brick and it becomes obvious which one is more desirable.

    However it is bigger and more expensive.

    GX is like an entry-level product, since you are moving away from it then I would like to recommend GT72 or GS70, but if budget is an issue then check GE62/GE70 out.

    kaveri is a crap also.
    the GT72 that maker said about is like 3 times more expensive.
    GE62 isnt still free of battery drain.
    I would like to say lets hope for new a simply GT60 version. it was performance/price stable.

    This afternoon I took a look on csdiscount, there is 3 MSI with 970M at 900 to 1000 euros. But the CPU is not that good (I5 with 4300 passmark score, nearly what i have with my A10 at 3.9ghz). But i dont like GS/GE serie, they are too slim.

    The i5 single threaded performance means it still fares much better in games.

    Recently I bought Lords Of The Fallen for 10 Euros. It works on GX60 on high details without any problem.
    Very nice .
    And I'm still on a-10-4600m.
    And so it will to the end .
    Very good gaming laptop for me ( I'm a single player) .
    Only a few small disappointments.
    Almost everything that I want to play , a play at a high details in FHD on machine for less than 1000 E which I bought in april 2013 . Very nice :).

    Hi Guys I recently decided to acquire myself a new laptop and retire my gx60, are people still interested in AMD Richland A8-5550M ES overclockable CPU's? As I have no use for mine anymore.

    Ps. I managed to safely overclock and game at a clockspeed of 3.8 Ghz.
