Tests done on my custom built Workstation PC as well as Alienware 17 laptop – all GPU specs below.

Quick comparisons [not the focus of this post]  :):

  • Puget systems laptop, with a GTX 980M 8Gb  – 91 billion int./sec, 1819 Gflops
  • My Alienware 17 with a GTX 860M 2Gb – 43.3 b.i.p.s, 866 Gflops
  • My workstation with a GTX 970 4Gb -> 146 b.i.p.s, 2919 GFlops.

Screenshots in no particular order.
