M15x with Clevo GTX 980m results


Recommended Posts

This appears to be limited to around 80w.   It's running very cool at about 78c for GPU Hot Spot.  I had read on the old site that the GTX 980m was a no go due to heat.  I am guessing that the issue was an unlocked card?  Even with the TDP limit, it's a significantly faster than the M4000M.




The hardware ID is different from the Dell card so the inf mod required a bit more work.

Modified inf file for driver version 511.65: nvdmig.inf

13D8 = Dell GTX 970m

13D7 = Dell GTX 980m

1617 = Clevo GTX 980m


Firestrike graphics score is about 21% higher than my Quadro M4000M
