    Hi new here I order the np8652 with the standard wireless card now im look for a wireless card i could buy and put in this beast can anyone help me with this...
    Also should I install Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 I'm more familiar with 7 but if there's any problems with the drivers with 7 then I'm sure I could warm up to 8.1

    Also a 192bit memory bus instead of 256bit, cutting memory bandwidth by 25%. Also slightly lower stock clockspeeds on the core.

    So... yeah. It'll be a mighty challenge to get it to overclock by the ~30% necessary to keep up with a stock 980M. It'll be impossible to keep a temperature advantage. More cores running at lower clockspeeds is more efficient than fewer cores running at higher clockspeeds. So, sorry but you can't produce a miracle and maintain a massively cooler 970M with the same performance as a 980M. Physics won't allow it. Yeah, you can undervolt but you sure as heck aren't gonna get ~30% performance increase while heavily undervolted.

    970M is still a great GPU of course :) So be happy with what you've got. It'll still overclock well and run cool. But if you wanted 980M performance at 970M temps... that's a physical impossibility currently.

    So I noticed that the backlight of my IPS screen seems to change a bit, at least when I'm running on battery. Went into power options and made sure adaptive display was off and that the screen was set to always be at 100%, but I was still noticing that the backlight was a bit weaker sometimes.

    However, I just went into the Intel HD Graphics config program and found an option that reduces the current consumed by the screen when on battery. It's on. Is it safe to say that's what was causing the sometimes dimmer display?

    There are also contrast, luminosity and gamma options in the Intel HD config panel :D These settings must apply to the screen at all times, right? And not just when the iGPU is being used?

    Oh, and how do I found out the exact model of my IPS screen? I have the P505 from XMG, but I was wondering if I have the same panel that Wickette was talking about.

    I think I remember someone saying that drivers for the P650/ P651 series aren't made for Windows 7, but perhaps I'm wrong. But I do know for sure that the drivers availabe on XMG's site (where I bought from) are clearly marked as being for Windows 8.1, with no signs of any for Windows 7.

    Either way, best to ask whatever vendor you're buying from about OS compatibility, as they should know.
