    Then nvidia needs to quit labeling it as such and w/e happened to straight desktop cards going in laptops. Screw this low clocked M crap.

    wha happend was - people wanted more portable & 'energy efficient' laptops.... & since the platfrom we are talking about is portable based - no one wants a laptop that will run outta juice in 5mins,

    lower clocks are to control the 'heat' primarily & the power the card chews up & spits out - also originally laptops werent for gaming. however there are a few laptops avilable tha use a full fledged ATi/Nvidia graphics cards but they can be pricey.

    if all desktop replacement laptops were to ship with full flavored desktop GPU's. the laptops themelves would need to be a lot bigger to cope with the excess heat. also - that would make latops alot more expensive as extra materials are needed to make it. which would mean lesser sales over all.

    if u have a powerful desktop at home - why would u want a uber powerful laptop??? personally im happy with the performance with an 8600M GT. so long as it can run guild wars then we are good for a few hours

    FreedomEclipse: I know, but if you're going to have a gaming laptop, it needs to game. Low rezs don't count.

    I remember laptops that were desktop parts in a tiny shell lol. Those were bad ass. I'll take 30 mins of battery for a full desktop in a 20" laptop form factor.

    I cant agree more but there has to be a limit or restriction on what parts are suitable for a laptop,

    if a laptop mainly consisted of desktop parts - i doubt anyone would be able to afford it - even though desktop CPUs & GPUs are cheaper - your paying for a privaledge of a laptop that can out game a desktop

    also dont forget laptops are ment to be some what portable - even 'desktop replacements' whats the point of lugging over 4Kg of laptop around if your only gonna get 30mins use out of it??? its a no brainer

    Mobility GPUs are improving all the time.

    youve got to undertand that not everything can always be 'full steam ahead' neither does it have to. - its the way things are. its how the grand cookie crumbles...

    ::EDIT::

    & if gaming at full rez on a laptop is all your complaining about but sorry that points redundant.

    its like trying to get a Geforce Mx2 to play crysis - so what? its a graphics card aint it???

    Nvidia needs to convice people that these mobile chips are durable and work fine. Think they took quite a reputation hit with the G8xM overheating fiasco since many mobile manufacturers have opted ATI HD 3xxx for their newest lineups.

    You guys know that the 9600M GT is nothing but a Die-Shrink of the 8600M GT with GDDR3-Memory (usually) and a higher clock? That means 32-SPs (and less Rops/TMUs, let alone the 128bit bandwidth) only, no way it even comes near the 8800M GTX (96SPs, more ROPs/TMUs, 256bit bandwidth) or the 8800M GTS (64SPs, and a bit lower clock than GTX).
    And given the 8800M GTX is based on G92 it's just the same 65nm as the 9600M GT.

    BTW. 3DMark06 scores for 9600M GT are around 5.5k-ish and 8800M GTX are around 10k-ish :)
