The 9150 and 9170. $300 more than the AMD 7970m.

so, how do the 680m,7970m, and 7990m line up in terms of power?

last gen, the 6990m was without equal.

According to the only specs I found, the 680m destroys the 7970m. But that's just based on nvidias released performances.

In reality I'd expect them to be much less different than that chart reveals, but the 680m will be better.

But for $300 more, I'm sticking with the 7970m.

I don't think anything about the 7990m has been released.

haha those bars are extremely misleading, makes a 15% difference look like 100%

It was equal to the 580M.

To be fair...

This kind of marketing is to be expected these days.

It was equal to the 580M.

It didn't matter since the 6990M was a far better price per performance.

Not to mention that most benchmarks gave the edge to the 69900M.

This. 30% more for more than twice the upgrade cost isn't worth it imo. Especially since most people who buy these kinds of laptops tend to replace them before that 30% difference really becomes apparent.

After my experience with one 280M, I wouldn't dare buy just one sooner than just one 7970. The real performance lies in SLI, and still, CF is much better value.

Also, more cores will only bring clock rates down, AMD is strong with higher engine clock. Hence, not necessarily better performance for NV.

Still too expensive, just like the 580M.

I think the only sli/crossfire option right now is the m18x. Roughly $2400 for sli 675ss or crossfired 7970ms.

Unfortunately sager pulled its 9270 for complications.
