  • 2016 and Beyond: What are we missing in laptops/notebooks?


    Mr. Fox is holding a brainstorm session in the forums asking: What's missing in current notebooks that you would like have added? Not your typical 4k display but something that takes hold of the imagination and breaks the status quo. Read the rest of his post below for details and the original post link.


    ORIGINAL POST BY @Mr. Foxhttps://forum.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8869-2016-and-beyond-what-are-we-missing-in-laptopsnotebooks/ now merged with @Prema thread into one. 


    After visiting with our friends at Eurocom about their quest to drive the future of computing technology, I decided to pose the question to the community to brainstorm as many ideas as possible.


    I could not identify a perfect sub-forum for it, so I chose this one. It is not for one company, but all of them. Hopefully, they will be paying attention. I know that the Eurocom Team will be, and hopefully at least a couple of others that care enough to be disruptive.


    As the thread title suggests, this thread is not a place to list out the features that you want in a notebook/laptop if those are available already. Rather, it's a twist on your typical wish list and poses the question about what we want to see that is not available.


    In other words, no need to mention 4K. That's already here and starting to become popular. No need to mention an eGPU contraption. We already have a couple of those available. No need to mention thin and light... we already have a plethora of options like that.


    What do you want that IS NOT available?

    Yes, WILD and CRAZY ideas and concepts more than features are what we want here.

    Let imagination be your guide and assume all things are possible in the future.


    • Dare to hate the status quo.
    • Innovation and the future go together.
    • Innovation is capability to create the future.


    The only stupid ideas are those you keep to yourself. After posting your ideas here, see if the company you do business with has a suggestion box email, and use it. Point them here as well. If they not, or even if they do, feel free to use the email suggestion box that Eurocom has made available: future@eurocom.com if you would like to.


    The more ideas we share, the brighter the future can be.

    To set an example, I will go first...

    - - - Updated - - -

    First, I want:



    • X99 laptop with 5960X CPU
    • Delid from the OEM/Reseller
    • Three-way SLI
    • 1KW AC adapter
    • Internal liquid cooling for CPU and GPU (please, no desk-bound colostomy bag for the GPU a la ASUS)
    • No more plastic laptop bodies... metal, metal and more metal in the chassis


    Second, I want AMD to make a comeback and kill the monopoly that NVIDIA and Intel have on the industry.

    Third, I want a real, full-fledged, fully functional OS replacement for Micro$oft Windows. Since they have lost their way and are trying to do a one-size fits all OS loaded with spyware, the Redmond Mafia is no longer adding value to being a PC owner. I want a new OS that can run anything made for Windows; not a half-baked Linux that only does some things well... and not something from Apple. Something fitting for the hardware mentioned under my first want.

      I have recently upgraded my laptop(an M6800 firepro 6100) and replaced it with an GTX 980m. Nvidia says that the latest driver(461) supports my card but i can only install up to 388.13 Ive tried to mod it but i can't figure it out. I can run the latest linux driver tho

      I have a notebook Asus X550CC.
      Some weeks ago my screen went black with the brightness working though (black screen but one can see brightness changes) - I couldn't figure out the root of the problem, since it was sudden and it works with an external monitor.
      Now, I was trying to install an SSD with a caddy. I went to BIOS to change the boot order, but couldn't find my SSD - so, I accidently disabled launch CSM option hoping it would recognize it or something. After that I couldn't access BIOS anymore and I have a very slow startup with dxgkrnl.sys, wdfilter.sys and CAD.sys showing not loaded in the boot log.
      I tried to:
      Remove CMOS battery for 8h  Short JRST2001 and JRST2002  Access BIOS through windows 10 troubleshooting None of the above worked for me
      The laptop does not restart or shuts down correctly as it gets stuck somewhere and I have to press ON/OFF button again in order to shut it completly. The only display I can see in the external monitor, during start-up is the windows 10 loading screen (can't see the asus loading screen) and it takes more than 5 minutes to get me there (seems like a bootloop).
      I hope someone may have the answer cause I'm running out of solutions 
      Thanks in advance, everyone!

      I want to show you my new project.
      I bought my laptop about 5 years ago.  It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
      Its specification:
      Intel i7-4700MQ
      Nvidia GeForce GT745M
      16GB RAM
      512 SSD Adata SU800

      Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
      So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
      I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
      I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.

      I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
      My plan:
      1) unlock bios
      2) buy GTX 970
      3) enjoy Witcher 3!
      BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
      1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p

      - first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)

      -after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)

      2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC

      - 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
      3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
      Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.

      Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
      I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!

      Hello to all dear visitors, 
      I have been using Lenovo y510p notebook for two years but in games I think my graphic card is inadequate. After that I've bought Mini PCI-e EXP GDC and attached it to where the wireless card socket is.  However because it has x1 speed its performance is too low. Even though on tests rx460's ranks is low than rx480, it has more performance.
      In x1 PCI-e port, the performance is too low and inefficient. On GPUz programme, use of memory controller is 20% but use of GPU is 100%. I mean, I've been hooked to the x1 speed.
      Components : EXP GDC version 8.0 +450w PSU + rx480
      I've read all pages about ultrabay, I want to buy and to share in forum.
      If anyone has ultrabay to PCI-e port, I want to buy. Please help.
      Thanks for everything.

      Hello guys,
      I've a really weird problem. My laptop has started beeping when use nvidia gpu yesterday. I dissambled my laptop and tried to plug out every single hardware and test them one by one. There's 22 beeps and equal interval beetween them.  It goes shutdown after that 22 beeps.
      My laptop is Clevo W650SJ and it uses Nvidia 840M gpu. That problem isn't causing because of windows or installed driver cos i tried to reinstall windows but it started to beeping when w10 installer check devices. Also I've bios password on startup , if i don't type password and hit the enter , it starts beeping after 10-15 sec. Also fan speed goes up to maximum and it doesn't slow down untill i shut it down or shutdown itself.
      If i use any program or run a game which uses nvidia gpu , it starts beeping but if i close the game on first beeps , beeping is stops. But fan speed still maxiumum until i shutdown to pc.
      I am looking a way to fix it. I didn't make any changes on my pc before than this problem.
