    I second the motion.


    ...BTW Brodyboy should take over the G74 drivers page as it doesn't seem JRd1st has time anymore
    Should be just as good.

    One correction should be made:
    1) G53JW-SW/G73
    2) G53SX/G74
    3) G55/G75

    The G53SX is the 15-inch variant of the G74. It has the Sandybridge CPU, as well as the GTX560M. ASUS simply did not update the name. @Marshall, any reasons as to why?

    G75 looks amazing. I'll buy it about 6 month later... For now I'll use my new G74sx
    I'm interested for real G75 specs. Is it unknown yet?
    ASUS G74SX - i7-2670QM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M with 3GB (900\1800\1500), 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM, 500GB+500GB 7200rpm WD Scorpio Black, Full HD 3D (1920x1080 120Hz) LED

    MSI, Sager/Clevo, Alienware and Origin (so far) are all using Optimus and some have used it for quite some time now.

    If ASUS still foregoes Optimus implementation, I will not consider them as a viable purchase until they do.

    Interesting, @Bojamijams, you and I have exactly opposite views. I do not want Optimus in my laptops for one/two reason(s): LINUX and/or drivers.

    LINUX does not presently support Optimus, which leaves it stuck with the Intel integrated graphics. I do a lot of work on LINUX, so having nVidia graphics is a huge plus--also a reason I avoided the AMD graphics cards. AMD's support for LINUX, from what I can tell, has been fair to terrible--but I think they are starting to improve.

    Also, Optimus requires OEM customized drivers, which, considering ASUS track record of driver updates:1 update-in-progress in 9 months--seriously! Without Optimus, I can run the nVidia reference drivers--which I do on LINUX, and get all the latest updates. I run the reference drivers also on Windows, and at risk of starting another flame war, I have explained why on this thread.

    My justification for this is the G53 (and other G series) are gaming notebooks, requiring maximum performance with battery life a tertiary concern. Also, as I recall, I saw some benchmarks which indicate that Optimus can actually decrease frame rates under certain conditions. Not a big deal, but it caps the frame rate to a little over 60 fps on a 1366x768 monitor. For instance, the 1st gen Alienware m11x (manually switchable graphics--no Optimus) got better frame rates on certain games than did the 2nd gen. The 2nd gen had almost twice the CPU power, but it used Optimus, which cut the maximum framerates significantly.

    On computers such as the m11x (insert appropriate ASUS notebook here) Optimus makes a lot of sense, and I would definitely agree with you. To me, at least, putting Optimus on the G55/G75 is like putting a spare gas can on a tank truck.

    OK note taken: I will make a new G75/G55 series forum. I would rather keep all older notebook discussion to a separate subforum though.

    Maybe subdivide that subforum? I see your point though. I guess the problem is that some threads which are started about one laptop run over into others that have the same issues or capabilities--I'm guilty of it. Then it becomes hard to decide which subforum the thread goes in?

    Code:
    Entry-level GPU: GT 640, GT 650
    Mid-range GPU: GTX 660, GTX 660 Ti
    High-end GPU: GTX 670, GTX 680
    Code:
    The GeForce 600 Series contains products from two different generations of Nvidia GPUs. For laptop GPUs, the older Fermi architecture occupies both the entry-level and the top-end of the product lineup, while the newer Kepler architecture fills in the mid-range. Most of the desktop lineup is occupied by the Kepler architecture while the entry-level is occupied by the older Fermi architecture.
    Code:
    On March 22, 2012, the first Kepler products joined the 600 series: the GTX 680 for desktop PCs and the GeForce GT 640M, GT 650M, and GTX 660M for notebook/laptop PCs. The GK104, which powers the GTX680, has 1536 stream processors, in eight groups of 192, and 3.5 billion transistors. The GK107 (GT 640M/GT 650M/GTX 660M) has 384 stream processors.
    This is hell...it's a complete mess. So for laptops 660M will be Kepler and 640M/650M/670M/680M will be Fermi while for desktops 640/650 will be Fermi and 660/670/680 will be Kepler?

    The 680 will have 1536 stream processors but only for desktops as for laptops the 680 is still Fermi? And the 660? Is a Kepler but with less stream processors?

    Can someone with decent knowledge on the matter, clarify what will be Kepler and what will be Fermi? I'm beginning to understand nothing...

    660m is a Kepler. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.71859.0.html
    670m is Fermi, an upgraded version of 570m. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.72197.0.html
    675m is Fermi, an upgraded version of 580m. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.70785.0.html

    680m will be a part of the Kepler family, though it might take some time before Nvidia decides to release it.
