    Shame it will never be in a Convertible Tablet PC. I frankly don't care that it weights a bit more.

    I have been gnawing, nay champing at the bit deciding whether to go for a Zepto 6624W with an 8600M GT 512MB built in.

    Obviously, that idea's out the window.

    Is this 90nm tech? Can U stuff it in a 15.4 inch form factor?

    Nvidia.com doesn't post the answer on their 8800m pages.... DAMMIT better cease the day and with their 55nm and slap thems intwo's some's lappy's. A 3870m should be able to preform nicely.

    I'd be nice to see a shrunken GPU able to play everything but crysis in a 12 in form factor, the 8400m gt is currently king of tiny little gaming friends, hopefully someone see's the mobile nerd market out there in GPU land!

    lol are you kidding? more like an hour tops. Even laptops with current midrange mobile gpus don't get that much gaming time on a battery. If your doing 3d gaming you plug in, thas how it works.

    Bugger, I just bought my Toshiba X200 with the 8700M GT.
    Typical.

    Still, what's the chances of these GPUs being pin-compatible?

    What is the 8700m? is it just an overclocked 8600? its not like you can get a desktop version which seems a bit odd.

    As I understand it its based on G92, so it's 65nm. I'm working on a Rock notebook for TrustedReviews atm, with a review going live tomorrow so those interested may like to head over there. Without wanting to pre-empt the review, the results are...good.
