There has been some speculation regarding HDMI 2.0, and the DisplayPort 1.3 standard was just released to the public today, but I would be pleasantly surprised if even one of these made it in.

Report: NVIDIA Preparing GeForce GTX 980MX and 970MX Mobile GPUs

by Sebastian Peak |
Memory speed and bandwidth will reportedly be identical to the GTX 980M at 5000 MHz and 160 GB/s respectively, with both GPUs using a 256-bit memory bus.
NVIDIA is reportedly preparing faster mobile GPUs based on Maxwell, with a GTX 980MX and 970MX on the way.
Performance (overclocking, power)95%Quality (build, design, cooling)95%General Features (display outputs, etc)95%Bundle, Packaging & Software95%Value for Money90% Overall TweakTown Rating94% The Bottom Line: ASUS does not hold back with its GeForce GTX 980 Matrix Platinum, one of the best video cards we've ever used.
With one of the highest clock speeds on the market, one of the best coolers and slickest styles, I'm incredibly excited to see what ASUS has in store for us with it.
With MFAA, and other temporal AA methods, issues arise when the pixels on your screen move from the bright part of the scene to the dark; since previous frames are being used to calculate the color of the current frame, there is the potential for degradation.
Our first comparison comes from GRID 2 and you can see in the metal frame work of the signage that the MFAA implementation is definitely a step above that of the 2xMSAA screen capture.

The GTX 980 can reach very impressive frequencies

by Jeremy Hellstrom |
You can bet [H] and PCPer will both be revisting the overclocking potential of GTX 980s.
[H]ard|OCP has had more time to spend with their reference GTX 980 and have reached the best stable overclock they could on this board without moving to third party coolers or serious voltage mods.
