Will the GTX 980m fall in price?

Recommended Posts

Hi, dont know if this is in the right forum but i want to get the 980m in sli for my m18x r2 and im wondering shall i wait for it to fall in price because the new mobile pascal just released? i still see 980m laptops being sold for same price and pre-purchase 1060m thats insane. any new would be good though.

New or New Old Stock will not fall in price. 980M on the used market did fall in price a bit. Then people found that there was no upgrade path to Pascal and the prices have remained pretty solid.

I can only second the previous two posters. Mobile GPUs in general did never drop in price much, given their limited production.

      I have installed a 980m card in an M17x from early 2014 and am now here to ask the experts of this fine establishment if they can help with what needs to be done to get it to work, if at all possible.
       
      It tries to upgrade a shorted out 780m. Modded driver was installed (445.75 WHQL from 2020.3.23), but device manager says error 43.
       
      sBIOS is stock A17 from Dell. UEFI enabled, legacy and safe boot disabled.
       
      OS is Windows 10 Home 64-bit on an SSD.
       
      Can it be done at all? If it can, what needs be done?
       
      Edit:
      I think my model is actually 17 R1, judging by the date, processor being a 4th gen i7 (4700MQ) and also this matches my regulatory model.
      I know this is my only post here and in I come, asking for help, but... pretty please help?
       
      Further edit:
      I have identified the 980m as being a Dell version. (as per GPU-Z)

      Hi all,
       
      I just installed a used 980m into my Alienware 17 R1, and I'm noticing benchmarks that are ~12% below what others are reporting online. I'm wondering if this is just meh hardware, if it's a vBIOS problem, or if it's a problem with my computer and not the card.
       
      I noticed that the GPU is getting throttled under load... like, under any load. Here's the clock and temp during 3DMark Firestrike:
       

       
      Here it is with the voltage as well:

       
      The "perfcap" reason in GPU-Z is power.
       
      Specs:
       
      Alienware 17 R1
      i7 4900MQ
      4x4gb 1600Mhz
      Win10
      My card:

       
      A pre-emptive thanks for any help.

      I'm looking at finally upgrading my m17x from its old 7970m to a 980m, but the person I contacted to buy the card from warned me that the 980m requires a 200W power supply, and win10 (I'm still on 7, but I can upgrade easily enough, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem).
       
      I have read that the 7970m only required 100W, so I have no idea if my laptop would even be able to power the 980m or whether this would just be a waste of several hundred pounds. Can anyone clarify?
       
      Also, I have read on here that installing a new card in an m17x require you to manually update the video drivers, but I'm afraid that I'm not quite sure what that means, exactly - would I need to rely on kindly users on here to keep uploading new modded versions of the video drivers in perpetuity, or is it just that I need to somehow tweak the installation on new drivers in future?

      Hi guys,
      I succesfully flashed v2 vbios from prema and I tried 1v and and oc but I couldnt. I think it was power suply. Mine is 230w. And I tried 0.75 0.50 0.25 and 0 volt. But now I m trying game, benchmark screen goes dark and after beeping at 0 volt. Is this a hardware damage? I used just 1v max.(temperature max 70c)
      I tried
      cmos reset
      DDU
      Xtu uninstall
      And come back to stock vbios
      I think my card is dying
      Please help me!

      Hi there,
      on 21st of October I had to realise that Battlefield1 is not running with my current driver 361.75  . . .  after I bought it. Installing the required 372.90 version is not so easy after you upgraded your Alienware M18xR2 with two GTX980M in SLI mode and Dell this old  is not supporting you with Win10 anymore, anyone having some Nvidia driver for my needs??
       
      Best regards and thank you
