    For some 3d rendering tasks it can hugely help, less so for gaming :p

    It's nice to see these powerfull card working on our old laptop but i wonder if a 4th gen Intel CPU can be a bottleneck for this kind of GPU. I was thinking a 980m was on par with it, and anything more powerfool begin to be overkill. It's nice too see the limited TDP too, "only" 100W!

    Generally speaking no, back in my time at OCN it was considered that the 1070 desktop was the upper limit of a 2500k @ 4.5Ghz and higher speed RAM.

    I ran a 4930mx @ 4.2 with 32GB 2133MhzCL11 and a GTX 1070 @ 120w and I didnt have any overt issues of a bottleneck.

    This is generally speaking of course.

    Depends on the game and threading along with resolution.

    @TheReciever and @Meaker@Sager you're both right and generally speaking gaming tend to be more intensive on the GPU and even with a "low" CPU. What's really good with technology evolution is that you can clearly see a power hungry GPU (like the 980 mobile, the desktop variant with 2k+ core) and the next gen, a GPU even more powerfull with a lower TDP (GTX 1060 and 1070 mobile for exemple).
    I'm stopping off topic but it clearly make me think of trying a 1060 or 1070 MXM some day :D

    I think you will still have room for improvement with GPU jumps for a bit. Especially towards 1440p.

    My 4980hq might work in the P150/157SM so that could be interesting little project too...

    Never really got to see how it performs at anything aggressive like 4.0Ghz+ since my t440p only handles up to 3.8Ghz intermittently

    @TheReciever if i'm not wrong the 4980hq is soldered and the p150/157Sm have socket, will you unsolder the socket and found a way to make proper contact with the heatsink? Wow that seems creazy to me but not impossible.

    There was a period where you could purchase the 4980hq and other CPU's of that product family with an rPGA "adapter" of sorts from suppliers in China, likely salvaged from dead macbook pros and resold. These were sold in both rPGA and also LGA and people have used them in both laptops and desktops. I have one as I wanted to use it with my Alienware 17 R1 but sadly it wouldnt post, at the time I thought maybe it was DOA, but I have it running in my t440p that I use everyday.

    Maybe I can put up my AW 13 R3 as a trade for one of these systems I guess it depends on the pricing of the GPU when ever I am seriously considering this.

    Wow i learnt something! Remember me the old time where there was adaptors for Pentium III / Slot1. I think we're a bit off topic so i'll search to see what it looks like :p
