In closing, this new utilisation of GTX 980 is a well-judged move by Nvidia. In recent times, the desktop version has been sitting in something of a No Man's Land: the GTX 970 is much cheaper and via overclocking, it provides the majority of the stock 980's performance. Meanwhile, the arrival of the GTX 980 Ti has redefined the high-end to the 980's detriment: if you're spending $500 on a graphics card, why not save up $150 more and get the top-tier product? Squeezed from both directions, the desktop GTX 980 has lost some of its sheen. Propelled into the laptop space, it should be the absolute state of the art - something we look forward to checking out soon.
