P170EM - Upgrading the GPU

Recommended Posts

I've been wondering lately whether this would be a good idea or not.

I'm not quite knowledgeable enough however to determine what the best GPU is compatibile with my machine. Forgive me for not knowing where to look! :P

So I'm asking here. I currently have an Nvidia GTX 675MX. And it's not bad, honestly. But I'm just wondering if there's another I could aim for later this year that'd be a significant upgrade.

Cheers.

And I gather anything 6 or 9 that has an M at the end of it, yeah? :P

I'll have to take a close look at the price and power of them.

Depends how much later this year. Right now only 6xxm and AMD 7970m work with no problems, while 7xxm 8xxm do not work at all, the 9xxm require a modded driver and the 980m can only work at 970m speed, however Prema is working on a mod that will make 7xxm, 8xxm and 9xxm work at full potential with standard drivers, so if you are willing to wait long enough you could go with any of the aforementioned cards, though no one knows how long you'd have to wait as there were no news of progress since ~2 months.

Anyways, as it is, if you don't want to get your hands dirty 680m and 7970m are your only options, while 970m offers the best performance out of all cards that work.

Currently in no hurry due to lack of funds anyway. :P But that sounds promising.

I'll keep my eye on the 970m for the moment then, but also check on Prema's mods for progress at times.

Cheers.

      Hi everyone,
      i'm writing this post to ask you if someone is interested about making for me an overclocked gpu vbios.
      I have a Dell M6700 with a NVIDIA K3000M and i' m kinda good with it but i m searching about getting more performance from it.
      So basically i want to have a 850 Mhz OC vbios rom and a 950 Mhz OC vbios rom, is there anyone that can do this for me please ?
      I tried using kepler vbios tweaker but i remains stuck at 548.9 Mhz without going up and i can t figure how to do it.
      I'll attach my VBIOS BACKUP CLEAR COPY.
       
      PS: Tech Inferno seems to have upload problems now so if you want the rom image contact me pls asap

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.
