Actually, laptops use a different type of G-Sync. NOT the same G-Sync you'll find in gaming monitors.
Their is no module in G sync laptops. It works identically like FreeSync/Adaptive Sync. Which also means it has the same cons as freesync and adaptive sync since the module does more than most people realize.
[quotemsg=18158903,0,883583][quotemsg=18156970,0,612141]Cant consider because of that logo. On the lid: Body building eagle? On the touchpad just looks like what Walmart would spec for a house brand, and the rest of the machine is a generic black plastic slab. Gigabyte needs to step up their game with this spin-off brand.[/quotemsg]
They stated the body is aluminum, not plastic.
My question is, how did they fit a 980 into a laptop? Modification done to the GPU or just slapped that in that laptop?[/quotemsg]
Yeah I was quite surprised aswell. They are using the gtx 980 designed for laptops though, so it is possible. But in such a thin form factor is surprising, I've only seen 980s in the thicker gaming notebooks.[/quotemsg]
Thanks for the insight - I am well versed with the GSYNC module for monitors, need to look into what sounds like an inferior version for laptops (possible Hz limitations ala freesync then?)
