    octiceps is right, in any case the 980 mobile is in every sense a desktop 980 :)

    That was with a Titan X in GTA V which is a known destroyer of CPUs

    Looks like it's being branded as just '980' instead of 990M.

    My 980M feels obselete :(

    On the other hand at least I can be safe in the knowledge that I still have the fastest mobile 'M' GPU from NVIDIA. I guess that provides a little consolation. I therefore like the way they've branded this.

    If you think this makes your 980M feel obsolete, just wait until Pascal. All this is - while incredible - is a GTX 980 in a laptop. That's it.

    You ain't seen nothin' yet.

    haha dont make the mistake to WANT to have something just cuz its new n shiny :p 980 at stock outperforms my stable oc by a mere 10%, if you look at the highest firestrike score i ever achieved its just 6%. so not worth upgrading to, rather wait for pascal :)

    Oh yeah, I'll be saving for Pascal as soon as I can find a job - much easier said than done though.

    They've kind of painted themselves into a corner. They can't go back to the M nomenclature next year as everyone will see it as a huge downgrade, no matter the hardware (because marketing). So I guess we can expect the full desktop Pascal lineup to be exactly the same as the mobile lineup and branded as such. Except desktop will have a higher tier option like a 1080Ti available or something along those lines.

    Oh and can we finally now stop proclaiming the death of mobile gaming? Because I think it's safe to say, what with the fully unlocked overclocking and whatnot with these 980s and fully unlocked Skylake desktop CPUs in laptops, that mobile gaming is more desktop like than ever before.

    This is why I went with a 970m. Save$300 now, get flagship Pascal or amd next year! Guaranteed to meet the standard of 50% you set for yourself! ;-) be satisfied until Volta or 10nm...

    I thought it was primarily phones and tablets that people are gaming on, not desktops and laptops.

    BTW can you add me on Facebook and water my crops? :p
