Insanity check question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Was browsing another forum, Notebookreview.com to be precise, and found something that... scares me beyond reason. Bringing to light something that I thought was literally impossible for a notebook. A notebook that matches a Desktop with the previous generation flagship GPU.

622

To better bring this to light, the 580M depicted here barely manages to match a stock GTX 460 when at stock clocks. Here it's passing a GTX 480. According to the vantage score on Guru3D.com, the 480 hits the 17.5k mark.

Now many of you are saying, "Wow... and I can get that for around a grand in a desktop." We are aware of this. Please don't post this because this is the Laptop and Netbook section. Not Desktop and SFF section. We who buy such ridiculous things are willing to pay for it. This is why OCN has the reputation it has. We sand down our thousand dollar CPUs for 2*C lower temps. thumb.gif



Does anyone else have anything to say to this or can we call this insane for a single GPU notebook?

Also, these are the specs of the machine if anyone was wondering. What'd you think he paid for this?

How long before it melts? I cant imagine that the stock cooling solution is designed to keep that laptop cool at that clock.

At any rate, that is quite the achievement, I want one haha.
