In theory yes... laptops are not officially supported but your spec is high, so I can only guess and say yes to all as changing ultra to high or low has little effect but other things do... such as AA

no point I have a gtx 970 and so I adjust the setting to what looks best for me.... some people are obsessed with thinking the highest setting is the best but I can assure you that thinking is wrong. TXAA is awful you could get the same effect by turning off AA and playing the game drunk... it would look just as blurry.... Don't get hooked on the desire to tell people you max out everything.... when you have a list of options, something has to be at the bottom and something has to be at the top.... it doesn't automatically mean better :D

Find what suits you best... I like bloom on... it may kill 10 or 15 fps but that means nothing as long as the game is smooth and I like how it looks.

Not sure if this is relevant, but laptop versions of graphics chips are also quite different from their desktop counterparts*; my *guess* would be that a laptop 970 wouldn't perform as well as a desktop 970.

(* at least that's how it was with the Radeon chip (I forget which) on my previous laptop.)

the 970 and 980 chips are much closer to the desktop parts than any previous ones.

That's good to hear -- because otherwise it's almost mislabeling a product, to benefit from false expectations on the part of the buyer.

Being an old geezer, I remember the days when components used to have unequivocal labels; good luck figuring out what exactly you're buying from Intel nowadays....
