The problem is not to overclock but to get rid of the heat... while CPUs don't get hot much more when only slightly overclocked, due the masses of transistors a GPU uses, heat goes up really fast... So you need to increase the airflow of the cooling solution, use more heatpipes, use more space generally speaking... more space increases the hight of the notebook which isn't what the people want. So be patient, MSI is trying hard to accomplish that, but they need first to develop a better cooling solution to do so.

I believe it's a good marketing idea and it's nothing useful , just like Intel HT or Virtualization for Gamers Smiley
I personally believe underclocking is much interesting that over cocking these days Smiley. undervoltaging is a neat idea as well  Grin

"Gamer Notebooks" are most of the time desktop replacements, so imho it does make sense to overclock also notebooks. I only think the overclock is quite too small. From 2.0 to 2.4 is not that much, from 2.0 to 3.0 would be much more interesting...
