Will the Maingear Pulse 15 be able to run all the games smoothly?

Hello everyone,
I was just wondering whether the Maingear Pulse 15, with recently updated specs, would be able to run graphics-intensive games at full 4K resolution and the other eye-candy (graphics settings) maxed out completely.

The specifications of the laptop are:
15.6" 4K display
Intel Core i7 2.5GHz (upto 3.5GHz with Turbo Boost)
16GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
GTX 970M [3GB (GDDR5 memory) version]

If you need more of the specifications, visit: http://www.maingear.com/boutique/pc/configurePrd.asp?idproduct=2112

What do you think? Will it be able to run intensive games? Or will it require the GTX 980M video card?

P.S: I think I posted this in the wrong category and that it should be in 'Laptop General Discussion', but I do not know how to change this. Sorry for the trouble mods....

    This seems to be a hot topic - 4k with anything less than dual high end desktop gpus is junk. 4k with a single mobile gpu is marketing BS. Stick to a 1080 screen with a 970m.

    How about 980M in SLI?
  3. Check the new Alienware 15 with Alienware Graphics Amplifier: http://www.extremetech.com/computing/193000-the-alienware-graphics-amplifier-finally-desktop-quality-graphics-on-your-laptop You can add desktop GTX 980 and use it with the laptop. You will have a good portable gaming machine with additional desktop GPU power when stationary, and easy/affordable upgrade to future desktop GPU variants.
    4K on 15 inch display is BS also. not worth under 24".
