Simply put I am planning to upgrade the powerhouse that is my gaming laptop, I currently have the 6990m installed in my system and it is ok, I have heard that Nvidia has had better quality as far as the mobile market goes but I have only had a small few problems with my 6990m, nothing truly major. So I am wondering, switch over companies and go for the 675m or wait for the full 680m, or not wait at all and go for the 7970m, I have not found many benchmarks at all, and so I am just taking a shot in the dark here, I mean I like the Red Team, but I like the green team too, what do you guys think?

I'm struggling to think what the 6990m doesn't do.

You guys don't keep up with The mobile market much XD Nvidia released the 675m bout 2 weeks ago which I found out is a renamed 580m =___= and then the 7970m is seeming to be an amazing new gen 22nm card which on factor clocks is a 25-30% increase over the 6990m and OC like nothing the mobile market has seen up till now, but I am just wondering if I should hold out for the 680m from Nvidia. So really this whole question comes down to Red Team or Green Team.

Oh and my laptop is the m17x R3, it does not welded onto the motherboad, so potentially I could self upgrade and use some IC-Diamond thermal paste.

I think it is a waste of money all together. Mobile GPUs are almost double the price of the desktop version with half the performance.

Here's a list of the mobile chipsets, from the most powerful at the top.

http://www.notebookc...List.844.0.html

All the ones with a present generation name that say Dx11 are rebadged. All the ones that show Dx11.1 are newer. Pretty much. (if they were new generation, the tests would show 11.1)

Still don't know why a 6990m isn't good enough - heck I play everything on a Quadro 770m with performance drivers, 1920x1200.

Thank you for being the only person to actually answer the Question that this post was made for and not just posting a sentence of why I should not even bother.
