Nvidia GTX 980 in a Laptop

Recommended Posts


Why would they bother when they have the Titan thing going on? In all honesty, the Titan is a better platform. None of the complications that come with multi-chip cards and all the power you'd get from a 990, were it built. Also 4x SLI.

inb4 can it play crysis comments. 

but, what are heat outputs of this ? wasn't mentioned in the video , will it throttle underload? 


I'm running a laptop with a 100W 7970m. Under load it feels like the exhaust could light fires. I'd hate to see what a desktop GPU would be like.

Can we FINALLY have desktop-grade performance on a gaming laptop? Nvidia says yes...

you can do 4x sli with two dual gpu cards as well... and frankly a titan x doesn't perform nearly as well as two 980s would. Of course it would be nicer to have a dual 980ti card, but that would have some serious heat issues - that said if the 295x2 runs fine, they might as well try it.

...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:


Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.


-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]


A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.


-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]


From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.


-OnePlus X - [7/10]


A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.


-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]


Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.


-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]


Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.


-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]


A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Okay, I'm really geeking out about this because I am really thinking on getting this with a Clevo P775dm.

If i'm correct that model has a desktop CPU in it.
