GTX 970M 3GB DDR5 Vs Latest AAA games.

Hello i own a Asus  ROG GL502VT gaming laptop which is equipped with a GTX 970m 3gb video card adapter. Since Maxwell is getting little ancient compared to pascal and newer model gpu's , how far my 970m can hold it's own against latest releases at 1080p resolution. Do i have to drastically reduce resolution within a few years or should i be able to play most demanding games at decent frames (around 30) without changing 1080p res. Please educate me with plausible opinion :)

Thanks :)

The mobile 9 series Nvidia GPUs sucked when they were new, so I wouldn't expect too much from them from this point forward. I think with a 970m you should still be able to get 60fps @ 1080p, but you'll have to play with graphics settings to get there. Next year, you may be looking at 30fps @ 1080p or 60fps @ 720p.

Even today, a desktop GTX970 can only handle 40~50fps at ultra 1080p. so for a m model is like a gtx 960 /1050(ti)

you will need to turn down some setting heavily to maintain 30fps high or 60fps medium

You should be able to get medium 1080p 60 FPS at the moment, as time goes on and games get more demanding it'll get harder and you'll slowly have to move to low settings to maintain 60 FPS. Unfortunately Maxwell was the last series where the mobile parts were considerably slower than the desktop parts, I think they were generally equivalent to the version behind on desktop (so 970M = 960).
