Confirmed laptops with 3.5 Compute Compatibility


I want to purchase a new laptop with graphic card that support 3.5 CC because I need it in my Master thesis.

According to Nvidia list, there is no netbook graphic card with 3.5 cc.

Whoever, according to this post:-

There are five laptops that supper 3.5 CC:-
1- HP ENVY 15t-j000
2- Acer Aspire s7-s3
3- Sony VAIO Fit 14
4- Asus VivoBook S551LB
5- TOSHIBA Satellite S55-A5279

I want to confirm that these laptops supporting the SM 3.5.

Can anyone please confirm it and if there is any other laptop that support SM 3.5 please share it.

Thank you so much.

I think one good indicator that the 740m is a GK208 is if it’s clocked at 980 MHz.

OP, I answered you via PM, but I will re-post it here:

I’ve found only a few recent laptops have GK208 chipsets, including the VAIO Fit 14 w/ GT735m and these Toshiba models: – S55-A5274 – S55-A5276 – S55-A5279

If you’re actually getting any of the Toshiba ones above, go through NewEgg Business and use coupon code XB2BNew10 for 10% off.

I actually returned my S55-A5279 because it doesn’t support 4K displays, but it does have a GK208 card, and I posted the screenshot in the SM3.5 thread here:

I ended up ordering a custom-built P50-ABT2G22 laptop with a 4200U CPU: that should also have GK208, considering the P50-AST2GX1 does: The display spec on the P50-AST2GX1 are wrong though. That one actually comes with a 1080p display that can downscale to 1600x900 or 1366x768 and does support 4k displays.

If you want more details I wrote about my experiences here:

I ended up going with the one with the 4200U processor because I noticed it is very power efficient on another laptop I tried out in the Microsft Store even when subjected to load. I should be getting it early next week and I’ll post here with my experiences. Given the battery on these Toshiba laptops is a bit subpar compared to other brands, that also influenced my decision. Don’t get me wrong, the S55-A5279 gave me at least 3 hours on a charge, maybe 3.5 or 4 if I did reasonable power savings… just something for you to get an idea.

Thank you vacaloca again for your time and effort.

We are all waiting your feedback after you receive the new model to confirm that it’s alss GK208.

Received the Toshiba P50-ABT2G22 with the i5-4200U today. Slightly annoyed because some of the keys on the keyboard squeak… hoping this is something temporary that will fix itself in a few days, otherwise that’ll be about a 2 week loss of productivity :/

It does indeed have a GK208, however, the bandwidth is limited to PCI-E 2.0 x8 @ x4 2.0 speeds.

One nice thing is that compared to the i7 model, it runs considerably cooler.

Edit: The squeaking could be related to some additive that they might have coated the keyboard with perhaps. I didn’t want to try WD-40, so I used the next best thing that I had available… perhaps not hygienic, but a bit of saliva seems to have done the trick, LOL.

According to the TechPowerUp database, the Quadro K510M and K610M are 192-core GK208’s.

I think the forthcoming HP ZBook 15/17 laptops have the K610M as an option.

It’s a rather small GPU though.

vacaloca and allanmac. Thank you so much for your time and effort. You really helped me a lot.
I have purchased Toshiba S55-A5279 because I couldn’t purchase P50-AST2GX1 since toshiba direct only sell it to USA resident and I couldn’t find it anywhere outside Toshiba direct.

Anyway, thank you so much for your time and effort.
