Nice thingy. Battery life and weight are irrelevant anyway. It's a desktop replacement.

Weakling! :P

I carried around a Dell D610 alot (2.5kg) and it worked quite well. If you can afford this you can probably afford a proper bag for it too, and all that in 3.5 kg is quite impressive.

I know CAD engineers that must have this kind of system because they are always on travel and need this kind of compute power for simulations.

If it is pointless to you it doesn't mean it is pointless to who can use this.

I would guess so, I would suspect that the 1688 CUDA cores are both GPUs and not in each GPU.

I agree with radrok. Having an extremely high performance laptop could be useful for a lot of reasons.
If I had $10K just sitting around I would consider loading one up to the hilt and buying it.

Besides, this is TPU ... when did "extreme at any cost" go out of vogue here?

Since people began bitching about the Price/Performance ratio of the NVidia's GTX 400 Series and praised AMD, they forgot the "Extreme at any cost" motto which should be a short and accurate description of TPU.

My Dell XPS 1710M weights with battery and brick ~5.5Kg, and I can carry it everywhere with no complains. Maybe you need to eat some more and do some exercises if you feel like 4 kilos are to much for you :)))))


p.s.

So, what's the price??

it must be 2688 cuda cores since each gtx 680m has 1344 cuda cores. i believe it's a typo
