    even with a modded vbios I don't think we can go beyond the 2 25mV voltage steps set by nvidia, but then again that should be plenty if just aiming for stock 980m performance

    TBH the misalignement is so negligible that I'm wondering if that guy isn't an undercover MSI agent...

    Do we need a microscope to see it? Because I can't in those pictures! I'm looking at it on the Nexus 5 though.

    Also; Friday is almost here! :D

    Well The Evil Within was just released this year by Bethesda and it recommended 4 GB of vram. Regardless if it was poorly optimized, I do think the difference between 3 and 4 GB is an important aspect to consider. I wish Clevo would have used the mxm versions which has 6 and 8 GB because this would become a nonissue.

    Regardless, The talk between the 970 v 980 started due to someone complaining about temps and choosing 970 due to the ability to OC and not about budget. Whatever you pick just be sure because the parts are soldered onto the motherboard.

    mxm wouldn't have fitted in either chassis. what I don't get is 970m vs 980m isn't like the 860m vs 850m dilemma, in which the latter two do have close gaps, but there's no price gap, and in a lot of cases devices with 860m is cheaper than 850m. there's a clear difference between 970m and 980m in both performance and price, so what else is there to make the decision ambiguous?

    At the end of the day even if (and it's a big IF) 4GB memory will not be enough for maximum textures in future games, the fact remains that you're still gonna be able to fit gloriously sharp textures in a VRAM pool that size anyways. Look at Crysis 3, that doesn't need anywhere near 4GB.

    So yeah, I'm not worried at all :)

    Don't have to even be a mxm to have the larger vram
