  • $100 off Eurocom NVIDIA GTX 980M Upgrade Kit


    Brian

    For the month of June 2016 anyone who likes the Eurocom Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/EurocomTechnology/) is eligible for $100 off an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit for any supporting laptop.

     

    If you already LIKE Eurocom on Facebook you are already eligible for $100 off an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit as well.

     

    Eurocom provides everything for an easy upgrade including the X-bracket, screws, thermal pads, and thermal paste and can provide heatsinks that may be needed to handle the 980M card. 

     

    Having an upgradeable laptop is essential if the user wants to extend the lifespan of the system through repairs or performance increases. 

     

    “Breathe the life back into your laptop with the performance of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit” Mark Bialic, Eurocom President.

     

    Eurocom is offering upgrade solutions for phased out laptop models to allow consumers and companies alike to extend the life span of their systems while benefiting from enhanced performance and usage of new software that requires new graphics.

     

    Eurocom and several other laptop developers integrate MXM 3.0b technology into their high performance notebooks and gaming laptops because it allows those systems to support the most powerful graphics technology on the market while allowing for possible upgrade options.

     

    Notebooks or laptops that incorporate MXM 3.0b can be easily upgraded with newer or higher performing cards of the same standard. This allows users who have purchased an upgradeable system to improve the performance and increase the lifespan of their system with an easy upgrade.

    Hi. Quick question if you don't mind. I'd like to buy one these kits to upgrade my m18x R2 (660m). Is everything I need included or will it require a different heat sink and fan?

    You will need heat sinks for sure... 660M heat sinks will not support 980M correctly. If you plan on going with SLI, you will need whatever parts your system is missing if you are not already running 660M in SLI (i.e. secondary GPU fan, heat sink and SLI bridge). Tell Eurocom what you need and they will most likely be able to set you up. They are strong supporters of people having the ability to upgrade what they have and chances are good that they have the parts you need. They used to offer generous trade-ins on Alienware laptops, so that may be something to ask them about. A traded-in antique Alienware like  the M18xR1/R2 is nice donor machine for keeping up their stock of upgrade parts.

     

    You will also need the BIOS mod from @Swick1981 available here at Tech|Inferno. Without his awesome BIOS mod, Maxwell sucks on the M18xR2.

    Hi people ..... I think that the folks over Eurocom have made a mistake ..... this upgrade kit is listed to be available even for the DELL M6500, and, myself having one, I can guarantee, that the standard 980m in mxm format can't be put in this DELL. It has a special connector, top-down, and not an mxm 45degree insert angle   

    .... Could you, any of the mods, bring to their attention this little "typo" ?

     

     Have all a great week!

      Hi everyone, I have an AW 17 (2013) on which i installed a gtx970m. So far I have always been able to mod the drivers and play with no major issue. After driver 373.06 (Yeah it got out a while ago, i started playing again recently) all the drivers i tried to mod and install do not work. I mod the inf file (nvdmi) with the subsys, then remove driver signature enforcement and install them, they install and everything looks fine on paper: nvidia control panes correctly states the number of the driver, in the control panel i read the hardware has no problem and the driver is updated. I set the options so that every game is run with the graphic processor, but for every game i run (I tried with several different ones) the computer always uses the shitty integrated graphic card. Does anyone have an idea on how i can fix this? thank you all for your help.

      So my laptop (latitude e6430) has an expresscard, so I wanted to get a eGPU for it. I did some research, and already got the adapter, but theres one thing I need. I need to know what is my TOLUD and what GPU should I buy for it, respectively. Here I attach a screenshot of my device manager and my laptop's specs so that someone may help me. If I got this right, my tolud should be 3.5Gb. Is this true, and if so, what GPU should I buy?
      Processor: i7-3520M
      RAM: 8GB
      note: sorry that the screenshot is in spanish, but I dont think that should matter

      Hello all! Im posting this here in hope to receive some orientation or help regargind my egpu project.
       
      I have my old and trusted Acer 5750G and I’m still using it everyday for work. I’m a photographer and it has worked quite well with some upgrades:
      -Upgraded i5 to i7 2630qm.
      -Upgraded ram, 8gb to 16 gb.
      -Upgraded HD to SSD.
       
      Some facts:
      – I have the unlocked bios so I was able to set the mpci port as “hot pluggable” and I can also deactivate the dedicated nvidia 630m from the bios itself.
      – I have bough this case [PCIe PCI-E EXP GDC External Laptop Video Card Dock / Laptop Docking Station (Mini PCI-E interface Version) ] that will arrive home in 10-15 days.
      – I have ordered a wifi usb card.
      I was thinking in getting a nvidia 1060 6gb and plug it to my old laptop using the mpci port. I ask for your advice and knoledge regarding this:
      1- Is this a good card choice?
      2- Will I face any problem with my setup or there is something important I should take into consideration?
      3- Will software that uses CUDA (photoshop and premiere, for example) get reinforced with the new card?
      4- How much processing power will get lost for the “small” port I will be using?
      Thanks a lot again, and sorry for my english mistakes!!

      Hey whats up guys and gals? New member but have been researching here for quite some time.
      I have a...
       
      2011 Alienware M17x R3
      i7-2630QM CPU
      16GB RAM
      Nvidia GTX 460M GPU
      Windows 8.1 Pro x64
       
      I happened to find a good deal on ebay after a heated bidding war lol. So basically I want to upgrade the GPU to get a liitle more performance out of her. A few games have some terrible lag as Im playing. Ive been looking on ebay and doing research on a new one for the past couple weeks. Should I go with a 580m or save the extra money and get a 680m or a 780m? Something along that line. I dont wanna spend too much on a newer GPU. Any opinions would be appreciated!
