NVIDIA Editor's Day 2014 - What's the use of an improved notebook GPU if it's going to suck down more battery life than ever? Oh wait, the Maxwell-based GTX 900M series doesn't use more power, it actually gives you longer battery life when you're not tethered to a power socket.




With NVIDIA's testing on an MSI GT72 notebook, powered by its new GeForce GTX 980M GPU running 1080p Ultra on the three games above (League of Legends, GRID 2 and Tomb Raider), the improvements are huge.




As you can see, we have a 30% boost for League of Legends, 29% boost for GRID 2, and a huge 55% boost in Tomb Raider on the GTX 980M.




Which gaming notebook should you buy? Here's a head start.
