Compare with My GTX980M
Size is same and has similar layouts too.

Fit perfects with my M17X R4
I did upgrade my Heatsink with 3rows for CPU and 6rows for GPU for keep it cool.

Here is What Bios shows up.
I got Win10 64bit with EFI boots.
I tried with Single PEG but failed.
Seems Pascal only support eDP signal for screen.
I guess If I change to 3D screen, might works for Single PEG use. Update me If anybody has tips for this.

Here is How it shows out in Windows 10

As there is no official driver for P5000 for laptop's yet, most of information not shows out correct specs.
But as you cans see it has 16GB VRAM and 2048 shader units.

This is 3DMark Fire strikes for P5000
check for more details with this links : http://www.3dmark.com/fs/11422803

I did some of tests and decide to wait official driver come out from vendor's or nVIDIA.

It's not working 100% performance yet, but still can feel how powerful Graphics card it is.

I have a M17X R4 and a M18X R2. I ordered one P5000 in Asia and get it hopefully before Christmas. ;)

 

Some question: How is the heat situation with the P5000? You mentioned that you update your CPU heatsink (3 tubes) and GPU heatsink (6 tubes). Where did you buy those? You wrote that the display port is not working with the P5000 or did I misunderstand? Because to work with external monitor is very important for me. That's why I ordered the P5000. I will sell my Lenovo W530 and want to use one of my Alienware for graphics work and gaming. 

 

#Edit: I misunderstood and read DP for display port but you mean eDP, the display connection of 120Hz FHD 3D displays. I got one in Germany for 90 bucks and will install this next week. First I will test it with GTX 1060 and then (wenn arriving) with P5000... I will keep you updated.

 

Has anybody experiences in installing the P5000 in Alienware M18X R2?

      Hi guys,
       
      Hope someone is able to help me. I bought a Dell Quadro K3100m card (the only mxm card I could find in my area). The card itself works (I was able to bypass post lockup by bridging the bios pins on the card) but the vrom on the card is not compatible with the card itself. I tried using other bios versions but they don't seem compatible. Does anyone have a stock rom for vbios version 80.04.FE.00.09? (Apologies if I posted in the wrong place - new to the forums).
       
      Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

      Hello Fellow Tech Gurus!

      I am having a huge headache after upgrading the ram memory of my m17x r3. 

      First let me start by saying I have been experiencing issues with my current ram setup recently, and so i decided to replace the ram inside of my computer, thinking they had gone out on me. It originally came with x4 2gb memory sticks, and as I started to experience issue, I started to removed them, and I was down to 1 2gb stick. It seems to me ram slots 1 & 2 are not working properly as when I put ram memory into them I would get BSOD in 5-10 mins of computer usage after boot. So I am thinking the slots have gone out. I also tested each slot individually and still same effect.

      So I went on the try out slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard, which seems to work just fine when I use only 1 ram chip in one or the other. But the problem occurs when I try and fill both ram slots in slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard with crucial 2x 8 gb of ram sticks, which total to 16gb total ram memory.

      BSOD and freezing occurs like crazy. But if I use just one of the ram sticks in either slot, no problem.

      I dunno if this is hardware or software. I am think that my motherboard is on its way out the door, but any suggestions you all have would be great. I have already clean installed win 7, and is currently running bios A10 (unlocked, I believe)

      I would also like to note that my motherboards internal vga is not detected, and just noticed this a few days ago upon trying to figure out the ram situation.

      other issues is my laptop battery is pretty much dead, and the only for my computer to cut on is if the AC adapter is connected

      I would also like to know can 1x 16gb 1600 ram stick run in my computer? or is it not supported by my motherboard? 

      thanks!

      Hi,
       
      I bought a alienware m17x r4 a few weeks ago. The problem is: I have noise (distorsion) on the right speaker. Had anybody in past the same problem and is it a known problem regarding this model? I feared at the beginning that the soundblaster is defect but I tested it with headphones and everything is fine. I already ordered a new speaker pair and will install it within the next weeks.
       
      But if you tell me that this problem is known and not resolvable I can save my effort.

      Hi,
       
      I read a lot of different threads about the maximum possible M17X R2 configuration. But after I was more and more irritated.
       
      What is at the end the best performant GPU solution (with unlocked bios and dirver mod) but WITHOUT manual fan control and such things. Because if I want to sell one day my M17X R2 I don't want to explain and force the buyer to control the GPU fan per hand.

      Hello Techies!
       
      New to the forums and I own a Alienware M17X R3 that has never had anything done to it and finally after 9 years the HDD crapped out, i purchased a Samsung SSD that I will be receiving next thursday so just getting a low down on what the proper procedure is. I currently have Bios A03 which will not give me SATA III speeds either from what I have read and will need A08? Will the Dell Bios update work for me or should i be trying to go with A12 unlocked? Can i do the update off windows as soon as do a fresh install on the new SSD? Or do I have to make a bootable usb? Sorry im not dumb with computers but not as smart as I want to be haha Thanks in advance for every ones help!
       
      I also want to upgrade my GPU at some point which current is an Nvidia 460M, what is the best/cost effective upgrade I should do and do I have to have a certain Bios to run that as well?
