75w TDP hahaha, seriously nvidia, big fail pushing 75w out of form factor of notebooks,
bulky notebooks are desktop replacement not proper notebooks, look at apple :)

75w is the same TDP as the GTX 960m which was able to be slotted into Ultrabooks such as a XPS15.

Hell, the GTX 970m was in the Razer Blade.

These are 75% faster for the same TDP, how the hell is that a fail?

I know, but it will take some time as the desktop part isn't out yet...

75W TDP was the TDP of 970M, which you can find in just few thin design, mentioning Razer blade 14" fox example, not as thin as other but a good example...

960M was 60~65W TDP, only 970M was 75W...

and 970M did have a good performance jump over 960M, though it didn't have much design wins compared to 960M

and yes 970M was in Razer Blade 14", 960M was in thinner designs such as XPS 13 & 15...

Couldn't an OEM put one of the mobile GPUs onto a PCIe graphics card and make a really fast card requires no auxiliary power, is < 7 inches long, only takes up 1 slot, and possibly even half-height?
 
Finally. I've been waiting for laptops to come out with enough GPU power to be a desktop replacement again. I last bought one in 2006, a $1,8xx Dell E1705 with the 1200p display and 7900GS graphics. It was an awesome powerhouse that could play every game thrown at it including Crysis, and was used until the screen died in 2012.

I'm tempted to pull the trigger on a 1080M, with that GDDR5X, BUT... I'll wait to see what Alienware do with it - as I am a frequent traveller, and I need a solid international warrenty. I also prefer the design asthetics Alienware has also.

Maybe with 1060m as it will need 75W which can be powered by PCIe

but, MXM module is bigger than a half height card...

I remember one company did this but it was just a prototype, the cost of a mobile GPU is higher and managing thermal is harder also so that never meant to go for production, just a concept to see if it worth the hustle...

wow nvidia really is pushing mobile cooling to it's limits. Since the 1060m has the same TDP as a 980m, razer, and apple won't be able to use them in their existing high end notebook designs. They need something around 60w, and it looks like we'll be waiting a bit longer for a updated 15" MacBook Pro or Razer Blade 14" or 17".

Apple has a contract with AMD anyhow, but if perf per watt is so great, apple hardly has a choice.
