GeForce GTX 970M 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 970M 6GB is a high-end Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds the VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) Technology which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA Technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204 which has 10 SM activated and thus offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 924MHz and goes up to 993MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 1253MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way adds extra performance.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.


Temperature
The Card is known to run cool. However, ultimately, it all depends on the notebook's cooling system.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 81W, it will only be equipped in large notebooks.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 10% faster than GeForce GTX 880M. Therefore, it should even surpass GeForce GTX 760 and be around as fast as desktop GeForce GTX 670.
GeForce GTX 970M is therefore the second fastest mobile Graphics Card as of October 2014 and AMD's Radeon R9 M290X is beaten in over 20%.


System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce GTX 970M 6GB.

Acutally, the new acer aspire vn7 or lenovo y70-70 looks way better. now waiting for one of them to get the 960M or 970M at a good price.

i love my lenovo, but i will never go lenovo again. Too locked down and fan placement is abismal. I am currently rocking the sli y510p. Touchpad on this model is rediculous and the keyboard feels cheap. but i guess i shouldn't complain since i was able to get this laptop for around 730 USD.


I would definetly try the gigabyte because i am partial to 15.6 inch screens because i travel a lot for work and like to have a gaming lappy with me to play on the plane or in my hotel room.

I wanted 15.6 inch, but I need 17.3 inch (and that means the gpu must be a bit worser, eg 960 instead if 970, because 17.3" is more expensive)
