Both offer superior performance over the Kepler series of GPU they replace.

Both the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M and GTX 970M are now official and they come with extreme enhancement in the performance as compared to the earlier Kepler series of GPUs which they are replacing. They are designed and built on the company’s latest Maxwell graphics architecture which is also being used for their latest desktop GPU line-up. With the help of this Maxwell architecture, the company has been able to make the two GPUs more power efficient.

The GTX 980M and GTX 970M GPUs are equipped with 1536 and 1280 CUDA cores, respectively and of course the GTX 980 serves a more powerful performance with its GPU base clock of 1038MHz while the 970M on the other hand is clocked at 924MHz. The mobile GPUs are built on the 28nm manufacturing process and feature up to 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and up to 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM for the GTX 970M and GTX 980M, respectively. For obvious reasons the 980M requires more power as opposed to the 970M which has a TDP of 125 Watts against 95 Watts.

According to Nvidia, their latest BatteryBoost technology is going to offer users up to 55% of additional play time by monitoring game’s frame rate and adjusting the power the GPU gives out. In addition to this, the GPUs have been equipped with Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) and Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing (MFAA), Nvidia’s ambitious Voxel Cone Tracing (VXGI) technology, VR Direct enhancements targeted at virtual reality head-mounted Display (VRHMD) users, as well as DirectX 12 compatibility.
