While we already did a drop, scratch and water test to see if the smartphone could sustain a few hits here and there; iFixit’s One M8 teardown would show you what to expect realistically when you have a broken or damaged HTC One M8.
IFixit also notes that the repair work is made harder by the use of copious amounts of tape, adhesive, and copper shielding.
Without going through a horrible amount of headaches, building a custom gaming notebook is a pretty tough task.
If you can afford it, the ORIGIN PC EON17-SLX gaming notebook will, without a doubt, leave a positive impression on you in nearly every category.
The 760M and 765M both use 768 CUDA cores, but the 765M is clocked almost 200MHz faster.
The RAM and core are connected via a 256-bit interface.

All five new GPUs will feature Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus and Nvidia Geforce Experience technologies.
