GeForce GT 650M and GTX 660M
Since the GeForce GT 650M and GTX 660M have the same architecture, have the same capabilities and components, and are only different in clock speed, shouldn't they both be compatible with streaming to the SHIELD when they add notebook support?

Whats SHIELD? The 650M says specifically it has 3D Blu-Ray support, but the 660M does not say it, while the 660M says 2-Way SLI compatible while the 650M does not...so there are more differences than meets the specifications sheet. Then some of the OEMs request certain features be disabled in the drivers. But I would think that if the 650M could do it, the 660M should be able to as well.... Now you have me curious.

Now you have me curious.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.

SHIELD is nVidia's new portable handheld. Check it out. http://www.shield.nvidia.com I posted this in PC components as the SHIELD section isn't as helpful.
