For example, if you are playing Jedi Academy with a Mobility Radeon 9600 GPU (in any of its derivatives) and you turn on AA and AF or increase the resolution, the degrade margin you get from the higher settings will basically be the same for the Mobility Radeon 9700 GPU (assuming the platform is the same). This is because the number of pipes and architecture between M10 and M11 is very similar.|

Sounds like the M11 is worthy successor to the M10 but not the dream chip everyone was hoping out of a mobile "9700"

To me this looks like an overclocked 9600 and since we have seen people here clock their current 9600's to 400+ (hell even I ran at 400 with no stability issues just to see if it could be done) I am not getting too excited. Will you see a few more FPS - yeah probably. Is it a revolution in the card - not at all.
