All of them have GK104 with 1536 CUDA cores. Of course there was 680M, but still it was the Gk104, only from desktop 670. So what does it mean exactly. It means that NVIDIA might still be holding a faster GeForce GTX 880MX for later, possibly equipped with GK110 GPU. If not, then I find this quite unfortunate to reuse the same GPU for three flagship models (seriously NVIDIA?).
The biggest improvement over previous flagships is obviously the memory size. NVIDIA has been doubling the frame buffer ever since and decided to go for 8GB with the latest GTX 880M. I’m not sure who really needs it, especially with 256-bit interface, but it’s surely a good marketing stunt.
