    I see what you guys mean. Fair enough. Even so, that temperature is remarkably good. Seems like the 970m is a no-brainer- 980m performance with temps in the mid 60's on a thin laptop thats under $1300 USD. SOLD! :D
    (OK, I'm biased since I just ordered the 970m version ;))

    Hi guys.

    Got a question for those with GTX 970M 3GB vRAM.
    Do you guys suffer any stuttering issue due to not enough vRAM?

    Here's a compilation of vRAM usage of some of the latest game from gamegpu.ru website :

    Thanks!

    You are in the Clevo section here, no locked down secure flash nonsense like MSI, Lenovo, Asus and all the others (YET). ;)

    Slowly slowly big boy, we also need to find the (PSU/temp) sweet-spot for everyone...

    Anyway, of course you also have your usual "GO-WING-NUTS" - version with power throttle completely disabled in your inbox. :D

    No idea, but I can tell you that the vRAM of the 3GB GTX970M and 4GB of GTX980M clocks a couple hundred Mhz higher than their MXM counterparts.

    'Not enough VRAM'??? Most games I've seen require at most 1 GB VRAM to run smoothly. Shadow of Mordor is cr*ppily un-optimised. Even X-Plane 10 doesn't require > 1.5 GB and that is reputed to kill all graphics cards.

    That chart is meant for desktops which are water-cooled and have no power/temperature/space limits (hint: take a look at the specs in your chart.)

    As far as I'm concerned, I don't need and want games to run at 60 FPS continuously - this means that my GPU isn't being taxed much, if at all. My personal sweet spot is 30-45 FPS.

    But to each his own

    Finally had time to try some overclocking on my laptop, with a 980M. I'll be interested to see just how far it can be pushed should an unlocked BIOS be made available! FWIW going for a 500MHz overclock on the memory caused 3DMark to crash out. I didn't tinker with voltages.

    Within a gnat's whisker of a desktop 4770K with a Titan. It feels like I'm dreaming!

    Well, just did a quick test on Dragon Age : Inquisition on my GTX 765M with 2GB vRAM

    1366x768 on High - around 1.2GB vRAM dedicated usage from GPU-Z
    1920x1080 on High - around 1.3GB vRAM

    1366x768 on Maximum - around 1.7GB vRAM
    1920x1080 on Maximum - around 1.9 (almost 2GB) vRAM

    It's good if you guys have no issue on stuttering.
    Coz I've pre-ordered the Gigabyte P34W v3 with GTX 970M 3GB.

    yupyup, johnksss found the same when ocing his 980m sli config, needed to also unlock the TDP power target to get even more perf out of his system :) should be a similar case here

    thx prema for releasing the potential of these brilliant models :) helps to pass the time until batman finally arrives :D

    Hark! Bluetooth survives yet another day without issues!

    A real stress test: in excess of an hour in Crysis 3 just standing there still - with a resulting constant 99% GPU load. Bam! Laptop handled it like a champ. Maximum of 63°C for the GPU and 64°C for the CPU. No thermal throttling of any kind. Bam!

    All right, I think this laptop is freeza disguised in a computer. Cakefish, did you try battery life? Htwingnut evaluate his p650sg to roughly 200 minutes for desktop tasks and 150 for movie. Anybody has the 980 + Fhd for battery life evaluation? Wickette?
