i'm using the 353.51 beta (unoffical driver) for 980m SLI.

What made a difference was using Prema vBIOS to stop the throttling.

Out of curiosity how did Win10 screw up your old gpu?...

Anyway, I have the same setup as yours: AW17, with a 880m, upgraded to 980m. I am able to remain up to date with the latest drivers. All it takes is modding an inf file in the official Nvidia drivers. If you don't want to do it yourself, there is a thread always updated by j95 who posts the modded inf.

I personally don't recommend Win10 as I wasn't able to install the drivers on it. On Win8.1 it was practically plug and play. Been using the 980m for a month now. It's an amazing GPU.
