NVIDIA has just released a reference board for a fully-featured GeForce GTX 980 GPU for the notebook platform. This new reference board is different from the GeForce GTX 980M which had launched last October. The 980M only featured 1536 of the 2048 CUDA cores that were on the GM204 silicon. The new GeForce GTX 980 for notebooks features all components present on the silicon and is made for larger desktop replacement notebooks.
The reference board will feature a 4-8 phase VRM and 4-8 GB of GDDR5 memory across the chips 256-bit wide memory interface. The clock speeds are very close to the desktop card with the GPU being clocked around 1175 MHz and the memory at 7.0 GHz (GDDR5-effective). The board is ready for overclocking up to 1400 MHz too! You will be able to have fan controls that adjust the clock speed based on the fan curve. Expect to see this card in many gaming laptops coming out!
