    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    There was talk that these GPUs used around 100W at launch, similar to the 980M (though differing figures are around). Not sure where the extra 130W+ is coming from in that case, for the PSU to not be up to it. CPU is 45W, chipset can't be that extreme, SSDs and Blu-Ray will be small, amp for speakers may be a bit of it. Still seems crazy, especially when it's driving such a low res monitor. Really does look like a product that needs a bit of tweaking.

    Would like to see the sales figures for this model, just out of (envious) curiosity...

    wccftech (which I can't link to due to being a noob with a low post count) suggests "The GeForce GTX 980 has a TDP of 165W, the GTX 980M has a TDP of 125W while the GeForce GTX 980 (Laptop SKU) will have a TDP around 125W – 150W (configurable by OEM)". If that's the case, I guess we get to 330W a fair bit faster.

    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    i do wonder does this laptop still suffer from the fact that its a laptop and when running games at >144fps say like csgo, would it choke out and give horrible microstuttering even when the specs allow it to do well over 200fps on paper

    and all this when pretty much any decent pc for like 600 quid could do 144 fps without microstuttering

    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    Hands down the dumbest laptop I've ever seen.

    2 980s to power a 1080p screen ? and 4 grand ? This just feels like they're messing with us to test if anyone is actually stupid enough to buy it

    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    Does seem like they could at least stretch to 1440 for that price.

    As this is a bonkers system, I would have thought MSI stick a Xeon in there too.

    'MSI does a good job of keeping the core components accessible for user upgrades. The cover above the keyboard slides off to reveal access to two of the laptop's four memory slots and an array of storage bays.'

    This is really a great feature.

    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    I'm still trying to get my head around the need for SLI 980s on a 1080p panel. If your intent is to plug it into a higher res monitor, you need to be asking yourself if you really need desktop replacement.

    Surely, a single full fat 980 would erase or at least mitigate most of the low points the review lists: Battery life would improve and noise would be less of an issue.

    I'd rather spend £2500 on a high spec desktop, and £1500 on a decent laptop for my mobile kicks.

    Re: MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI

    I'm still trying to get my head around the need for SLI 980s on a 1080p panel
    ..well in desktop terms they're only equivalent to a 970, as shown by the fact that my 970SLi setup gets pretty similar benchmark scores, and in the very latest releases like The Division & Tomb Raider, 970's are starting to struggle even at a lowly 1080p.
