8970M in P150EM

Recommended Posts

The P1x0EM has a fully muxed chip, so you would want the "Enduro" vBIOS...

I put a 8970M in P150EM now.

Yes its works!

But in Bios show : VGA CARD EMPTY

When a flash VBIOS to non enduro i receive a error message code 0006 by atiflash.

Is the laptop beeping at you and shutting down after a few minutes with the 8970m?

And is this a Dell 8970m or a clevo 8970m?

That's normal as it is not in the device list. Has nothing to do with functionality.

So the VGA CARD EMPTY has 0 effect on the over-all performance of the GPU? Is it possible to get the Enduro switchable graphics working as well?

Enduro should work by default. If it wasn't your battery would last only 2 hours at best. You can play around with enduro settings by right clicking on your desktop and clicking "configure switchable graphics".

I would like to know if it's possible to do that because i want to upgrade from 7970m to 8970m, only because vram 2gb vs 4gb !

So if this works I win in 2 ways first the more vram for games like bf4 (using 1.8gb for now) and second, not too important, an updated card !

My question is did I need some especial vbios or a modify bios to make amd 8970m compatible and work well on my clevo P150EM ?

I just replaced my broken HD6970M with a new one and my Clevo P150 is now beeping and shuting down after ~1min.

You might know what this is about?

Thanks in advance.

Clevo motherboards cannot properly read the temperature sensor on dell amd cards. Amd cards from clevo or msi are fine, and nvidia cards from anyone that are not the 780m or 880m are fine. It sounds like your replacement card was a dell.

exaclty, we try hd8970m and r9-m290x from Clevo on P150EM, works perfeclty.

Is it possible to get the R9 M290X separate? I can not find a Clevo M290X anywhere on eBay.

The r9 m290x is a rebranded 8970M. They are exactly the same, my 8970M was magically a r9 m290x after a bios update. The pcb is even the same :) So you can just go for a 8970M, you miss nothing, you just get the same.
