And GTX 280M was an 8800 GT.

They pull this stuff all the time.

The bad part is.. the HD 6990M costs as much as the HD 6990.

Someone tell me what the slot interface is called for a mobile FF video card. Is it some variation of PCIe? How many lanes are available on the card?

The thing is AMD didn't start doing this until recently, I think. Used to be, a 3870 was the same as a 3870M and whatnot. :shadedshu

I don't understand using 6990M for a GPU at HD 6870 level. Why not 6870M?

Oh, because they probably have a 6870M that is equivalent to some other HD card of course.

When I first saw the name 6990, I assumed they somehow created a dual GPU mobile equvialent of the HD 6990. Silly me. :confused:
