nVidia GeForce GTX 980M Performance Review

I reviewed the Gigabyte P35X V3 just about a few weeks ago, it was an amazing notebook with drooling 2880 × 1620 resolution for the glorious display and the most outstanding feature about the notebook is that it’s powered by an nVidia GeForce GTX 980M!

The Verdict

The nVidia GeForce GTX 980M is a stunning performer and could only be topped by GTX 970M SLI and GTX 980M SLI configurations.

If you love gaming and it’s your idea on how to kill time on business trips and such, you know what to get. 😀
