This is an interesting link...

http://www.geforce.com/#/News/articles/introducing-the-geforce-gtx-560m-mobile-gpu

So it states that the GTX 560m is practicaly the same with the GTX 460m only clocked higher...

Whats interesting is Not all will eneble Optimus the upcomming G74 wont have it...not that it realy matters for most people...Its a gamming laptop after all...

But it has the G53 as supporting the new GTX 560m as well...

So its possible the we could upgrade the G73 JW and SW to a 5xx M card...

Not that we need it right now the GTX 560m and GTX 460m are from the same core so perfomance gap are not that big...but maybe future GTX 5xx M cards in the future

well, I think that with a good repaste you can safely push the 460m to 560m clocks and you can save yourself some bucks...

interesting...I was looking at MIS's site and now they have upped the GT680R (460m) to GT683R (560m) and here i thought they will just have the 560m on the GT780 line...

So i guess this year 2 MSI GT series will carry the 560m and I guess Asus G series is the same...
