NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M in Gigabyte P34W – benchmarks and gaming tests with the latest NVIDIA drivers (355.98)

gigabyte-970mGigabyte P34 is not your common gaming machine – it weighs 1.8kg and has a thickness of just 20.9 mm. Yes, it feels more like an “ultrabook” than a gaming beast but P34 sports NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M GPU with 3GB GDDR5 memory (see rankings) and Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor (see rankings).

We’re testing the notebook for an in-depth review but until it’s ready, we would like to share with you how the machine manages to handle our gaming tests, which is very interesting given the ultra slim body. We also don’t know what to expect from the cooling system whose performance is crucial for good gaming experience.

We ran GTA V, Metro: Last Light, Tomb Raider, Thief and F1 2015 at minimum, medium and high graphics settings, and in two resolutions – HD and Full HD. Take a look at the results…
