    Windows 10 can make a laptop run real slow due to several reasons. One possible reason is the super fetch service. Try to disable it and see if that does the trick. I had to do that on my Alienware m11x R3 and even the Alienware m14x R1 as well. After that the disk usage went from like 99 percent to around 1 - 51 percent and the machines ran smooth again. Some of those Windows 10 services can be rather rough on the disk usage.

    Do you think a single 8970M is better than single 680M?

    Did anyone figure out how to run 680M SLI? (w/ adjusted 330W psu to 400W output)

    Single 8970M is definitely quite a bit faster than 680M.
