    I guess that's what I assumed when I first heard about this move. I figured a thinner W530 might be nice. Until the real specs are released from Lenovo I don't think we'll know.

    Maybe after the big partner conference next week we'll know more.

    We do: According to this
    http://image.xinmin.cn/2012/04/25/20120425012038482309.jpg
    the W530 is going to have the Nvidia Quadro 2100M

    More on 2100M:
    NVIDIA Quadro NVS 2100M - Notebookcheck.net Tech
    The NVS 2100M supports PureVideo HD (with Video Processor VP4) to decode HD videos in the formats H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 ASP using the GPU. This helps reducing the CPU load and should lead to higher battery runtimes when viewing HD videos.

    Oh, no, that is not the Quadro 2100M. The GPU listet by Notebookcheck is the nVidia NVS 2100M, a older low end business-GPU. The Quadro 2100M is not official announcend (announcment will come on 14-16 May timeframe).

    Yeah I agree. It has to be a new Kepler part. And since nvidia has no yield on 28nm it could even be responsible for delays..

    it should be a 630m Nvidia, if they are using the same GPU as the new E430 and E530.

    Maybe a CPU swap is, depending on BIOS. Ivy Bridge should have the same socket, and similar chipset support.

    I'm hoping I can just do a CPU swap in my T420 for lower power consumption and improved Intel HD graphics.

    I think Intel said mobile CPUs can't be swapped. A board, then CPU swap might work depending on the case, though it sounds expensive.

    if its the 630m its just the same as the nvs4200, basically the 430m/435m/540m/550/555m/630m/635m/640m LE are the same core, with basically the same clocks, its fermi in the low end. The best that we can hope is a 640m and not the LE version since its the same rebadge for 3 years
