    Re: News - NVIDIA brings Fermi to notebooks, launches GeForce GTX 480M

    the mobile Fermi part will feature a core clocked at 425MHz, 352 stream processors clocked at 850MHz, and a GDDR5 frame buffer set to run at 1,200MHz.
    So basically, it's closer to a GTX 465?

    They could call it the GTX 480 Mobile Extreme Eugenics. Sounds great, unless you know what eugenics means, which they wouldn't.

    this thing is goin gto have a battery life in single figures! t must come with some kind of hybrid GPU.

    Its got about 70% of the shaders, with everything clocked at around 55% of the speed. Ouch, but then having parts that won't run at 800Mhz and 480SP's, at least they can sell some of the cores somewhere, bit laughable they can only sell them in laptops where losing 60-65% of the performance is acceptable, a desktop card based on Fermi offering 35% of the speed of the full part, would be laughable, and probably on par with, a 250GTS, maybe closer to a 260gtx. Its gonna suck a LOT of juice aswell, a mobile 5870 has got to be cheaper, run lower power, be more available and probably faster, ouch.

    Would rather cover my scrotum in "Blair's 16 Million Reserve" than have that in my laptop.

    I know it's the way it meant to be named, but it is very misleading as someone without enough understanding in these areas could assume that it's on the level of the desktop GTX480...

    it would have been fair to name it like GT400M or something like that...

    Re: News - NVIDIA brings Fermi to notebooks, launches GeForce GTX 480M

    Love to see the percentage of returns of laptops with this in after 12 months. I can imagine heat will be a real issue and cause serious problems.

    I wonder if manufactures will be cautious about using this chip.

    Laptop parts have always been much slower performance-wise than their desktop counterparts. There's nothing wrong with nVidia's naming scheme here. The Mobility Radeon 5870 for example is closer in specs to a desktop 5750/5770 if I remember correctly. Same with Mobility 4870 and so on (and previous nVidia parts obviously).

    Although I agree that I'd way prefer if manufacturers calibrated laptop parts against desktop parts and named them accordingly. ie. the fastest mobile gpu would be named a GTX460m for example rather than a GTX480m.

    That will make very good use of the battery I guess. How does 30 min from 8 cells sound ?

    It's misleading, customers think they will get GTX480 desktop performance, and they don't get anything close.

    They should be named according to hardware generation, i.e GTX480 with a shader count appended.

    GTX480-448

    Then any culling of features such as memory bandwidth etc forces a reduction in major number to GTX460-384 and so on...

    The mobile part should be something like a GTX440m-352

    You've clearly not been to the loo after handling your favourite After Death sauce (et al.) and neglected to thoroughly clean your hands enough afterwards. At least don't have to put the laptop directly on your lap (counter intuitive I know).

    Already on sale at kobalt in the comanche, basically a desktop CPU powered laptop and their G875.

    Currently carries a premium of £353 over a 285m, bearing in mind a 5870m is about £40 cheaper then a 285 lol.
