  • Replacing Nvidia 980M with GTX 1070

    Is anyone thinking of replacing their 980M with the newer 1070? The difference is huge according to several YouTube videos.

    The laptops chassis that we use for our systems are generation locked by the manufacturer. If you have a 980m in your system, unfortunately that would be the highest GPU your system will support.The new 1070s and 1080 cards are not compatible with the chipset used for the motherboard. I'm sorry that this isnt the news you were looking to hear in regards to upgrading your system.
