Maybe marketing and engineering should work closer so that customer would get more accurate information rather than false-hope information.

 

Have a nice day! :smileytongue::smileyhappy::smileyvery-happy:

Thanks for the link.  The one thing you learn from the document is that K1000 and K2000 aren't project names.  They are product names.  There is no balls comparison.

I found this too:

 

"quadro K2000 will have 384 Cuda cores. use 55w

I got some product details of W530 from a Chinese thinkpad seller, he sent me a ppt says it's from offical lenovo, i don't know if everything on it is true, but it shows K2000 will have 384 cores, which sounds great"

(in comparison, the Quadro 2000M has 192 Cuda cores, and also 55w )

The other laptop I've been looking at (Sony S 15) also has a graphics card with 384 cores (GeForce).  It's been making my decision very difficult (esp. how both the W530 and Sony will support Gobi chips and posibly hard drive caddys in the optical drive bay also)

Meh the nice graphics and long battery life seem nice, but I will never trust Sony again with a laptop from them. Not after my Vaio experiences.

Re: W530: Sub-par features to the actual components used?

I thought it would have been obvious that the new card will be a minimum of 50% more powerful than the 2000M.
It's pretty much the way it goes.

Interesting read on the card, http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-640M.71579.0.html. I wonder what GPU memory with the Sony. DDR3 or GDDR5?
