  1. Nvidia has expanded its notebook graphics lineup with a handful of new models that should be rolling out in systems from major vendors over the coming weeks and months. All five new parts are members of the Kepler-based GeForce 700M...

  2. 3x better then IGP does not mean playable ... the 750M starts too look better tho .. anything lower is pretty useless IMO ...

    ''For whatever it's worth, the company writes that the 700M series can deliver 90fps in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, 65fps in TES V: Skyrim, 66fps in Batman: Arkham City, 48fps in Battlefield 3 and 64fps in Shogun 2: Total War when playing on medium quality settings.''

    Well it doesn't even mention which card and on what resolution, yet it tries to give us exact fps rates like 66, 48 etc.

    actually, integrated graphics has gotten fast enough that it can play most games on low to medium settings. Especially if you consider AMD's apu's. Even Intel's igp has decent gaming performance at this point. Certainly not ideal, but very playable.

    Those are actually gonna be improved. The 700 series is only a revision really, with minor improvements like higher clock speeds, not a full revamp. The desktop cards may get an increased core count to continue to compete with AMD.

    Mostly right at this point in time. The 710M/720M are GF117 (Fermi) parts, whilst the 745M/750M are GK107 (Kepler) parts. The 735M/740M are second generation Kepler (GK 208).

    Are there any changes between the 650M and 750M then? Also what improvements come from 2nd generation keplar? Other than optimizations. A higher clock speed, core count, etc.?

    Mobile anything with a new series is usually revisioned generation minus 1, but it's almost always a precursor to the desktop cards.
