Yeah, finally something to replace the 460M but still nothing really super beyond that. We'll have ATI 8 series by the time they get the rest out :D.

And...zomg the MX returns. Ahhhh quick burn it!!!

So, once all the marketing bullshit is stripped away, what is the 560m roughly equal to in terms of desktop GPU's?....

it will be equal to GTS 450 desktop, but only tests will show it.

Damn it is not a GTX 580m. :cry:

It is sad to see Nvidia trying to play catch up with Intel in the GPU side. :banghead:

How the mighty has fallen.

i hope you're talking in terms of market share and not performance

hmm.... another MX eh? well hopefully they won't take out the shaders

I'll admit though, the 440MX is the only card that actually filtered HL2 correctly in x8 AA/x8 AF mode. (although it ran like ass, but was great for screenshots)

good news, existing gtx 460M is still very cometitive in price/preformanve/powerdraw. but why the hell we have to wait so long for it? I mean it is JUNE and after 6 months there will me 28nm mobile gpus out
actually... you can get one with a 560M now! Don't know if it has nVidia Optimus though.

I am one of those people that don't think "gaming" and "notebook" should really be in the same sentence.

Granted, we have come a long way with companies like Nvidia when it comes to graphic power on notebook computers. However far too many people buy these "high-end high-dollar" systems expecting them to just play anything they want to play, full on max settings, and it just does not work that way.

It is nice to see this though, I just wish people understood that that "M" at the end pretty much means it will not perform on par with its big brother card. heh
