Question

GTX 970M vs. 980M

by Exterminatus / April 6, 2015 9:57 AM PDT

So, I am looking to buy a new gaming laptop in a next month or so and I cannot decide which one I should get.

My main concern is Witcher 3. Can 970M run it on full on ultra settings? Or do I need 980M? Also, is there a difference between 970M 6GB and 970M SLI?

Thanks in advance!

Google

Notebookcheck 970M

Same for the 980M. Witcher 3, unless you are trying to do 4K output will run at top speed according to what I see. That is unless you want ultra settings. I can't guess why we can't pull back a notch here and there.

SLI = Scalable Link Interface

I means parallel graphics processing (meaning 2 graphics cards).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
