    I recently found this announcement on a chinese website. http://www.pcpop.com/doc/1/1075/1075533.shtml (I suggest Bing for translation though...). Now there are 2 interesting things shown:

    1) It obviously shows a successor of the Clevo W355, which I think looks quite nice, as it seems to consist a nicer finish than the previous one.

    2) The text claims that the 960m gtx has 1024 shader procerssors (instead of the rumored 640 processors)! Now if that is true it would be hell of a nice midrange GPU.

    Fact or fiction? Guess we'll soon find out anyways...

    That would give it the same specs as the 965m so seems a bit odd.

    Indeed. Well, I hoped at GDC Nvidia would reveal official specs, or the NDA contract with laptop resellers is over, so we get some hard data, but unfortunately it was just about the Tegra.

    This confirms the rumor for the 950m at least. After having a look at notebookcheck the 850m Maxwell seems also equal to the 860m Maxwell (aside from memory and core clocks), we could say they were both the same. The 950m seems to be in the spot between the 850m and 860m. But we still don't know if this data applies to the 960m as well. Could be a typo or misinterpretation from the news magazine on the chinese page though.

    Sites will be putting out click bait all the time so will show any rumour. Best wait and see :)

    Turns out it was clickbait or a badly researched article, as a fellow member found a review of the 960m GTX http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ounced-by-nvidia.762758/page-204#post-9950734

    Screenshots show 640 cores only, and the performance results are as disappointing as in the earliest rumors.
    That's a real cheap move from Nvidia, but unfortunately they can do what they want, because ATI delivers nothing at all.
