Upgrade from P750ZM to P750DM is it worth it ?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

This might look like a strange question to ask but I would like to know if at this point it is worth it upgrading from a P750ZM to a P750DM-G ?

 

My current specs are the best I could get in my ZM.

-i7 4790K (overclocked) @ 4.3 GHZ

-16 GB Ram Hyper X Impact DDR3

-GTX 980M custom Vbios (Overclocked)

-2 x Samsung 950 Pro 500 Gb V-Nand SSD

-1X 1TO SSHD (seagate) 7200.

 

I was wondering if there is any advantage the DM has over the ZM are Intel 6 gen processors worth it over my i7 4790K ?

Is there any advantage of having thunderbolt on a laptop that's already up-gradable ?

Is there any other advantages of getting a DM-G at this point in time.

 

I have been hearing a lot about 6 gen intel and the new 750DM-G's but I got my ZM expecting to keep it for at least two years upgrading to a top of the line PASCAL GPU along the way when those are available and when the bios updates are available before buying a new clevo barebone and transferring my GPU and SSD's into my new clevo system when I purchase it I was expecting to do this at around X-Mas 2016-Early 2017.

 

Is there any good reason for upgrading before end 2016 early 2017 ?

 

I am currently torn between sending the money in this hobby or in another one (film photography).....

 

Thank you in advance for your help and advice !

Personally... No. The p750dm doesn't offer much more than what your current config can achieve, exept if you intend to max out the 40 Gbps bandwidth of thunderbolt 3 port for eGPU(980ti/titan x/quadro/pascal) or multi 4k display/5k display or external NVMe storage, in which case I would rather recommend the p870dm since it offers much more-

-Better graphics cards/SLI(you could SLI your existing card)

-Close to 100% adobe rgb 4k auo display (useful for your other hobby)

-Better cooling

-more overclocking, especially if you get it with Premas fully unlocked BIOS from a partner shop(with warrenty in some cases), or can wait for the free public release.

-More usb, GbE LAN

Uses all the PCIe lanes z170 offers, making it the best skylake desktop replacement....

That being said since you already have a great mobo I think you can easily wait till Pascal, Kaby lake and Skylake-E arrives.

If you are really in a rush to get the best system NOW, not satisfied with your current performance and have money to burn[emoji14]

1) for better GPU(s) performance, display and thunderbolt 3, upgrade to the p870dm(with Prema BIOS if you can)

2) for better CPU, even better GPU(s), display and expandability, go for an enthusiast(X99) desktop, keeping your current system for mobility only(I'd rather wait for skylake-E)

Hope this helps[emoji1]

My thoughts exactly ^

 

Maybe just wait for pascal unless you got the money to blow. Hopefully pascal delivers what it promises.

This thread is quite old by now but anyway.

I've upgraded my P75XZM to a P75XDM, my motherboard stopped working so I bought a P75XDM motherboard instead.

Everything fits except for the two cables for the touchpad so unless you change some connectors you won't be able to use it.

Other than that it's a pretty straight forward upgrade.

      Hi all,
       
      It has been a while since I did anything to my laptop (Clevo P670RG-G) and since I recently got a VR Headset I wish I could overclock my GPU a little. So far the NVidia software (on windows) doesn't allow me to overclock it (the linux sort of allows, which some custom Xorg options) so I decided to give a try modding the vbios.
       
      I read all sorts of issues / guides about it, and it seens that the hardware topology (where the vbios is stored and how things are connected) changes from machine to machine.
       
      What I know about my laptop is that it has two VBios, one for Hybrid Mode and one for Discrete Mode. I'm currently running the discrete mode.
       
      I dumped my VBios using GPU-z and opened up in Maxwell II Bios Tweaker. Everything seens fine so far.
       
      So I have few questions about it:
       
      - There is a way to just unlock the VBios to show the overclocking options in NVidia software? (That way I dont need to reflash to change clocks)
      - I can just flash this GPU-z dump to my VBios?
      - If I brick my GPU, that GPU-z dumped image is the raw SPI image, so if I managed to physically access the VBios, I can just reflash over it?
      - I saw some people saying that I might need as well to flash the main laptop bios as well, is that really needed?
       
      Thanks!
       
      Lucas

      There are several threads on requesting BIOS modifications here on T | I but I thought another one wouldn't hurt.
       
            Your request should look like:
      Brand Model Type of modification(For example: Unlocked, added support, Logo, microcode, ME firmware etc  
      I'll respond as soon as I have time as I'm also currently working on other projects(Requests by PM is also ok)
      If anyone else have the knowledge and time feel free to respond to requests

      Greetings, I have a p650rs and I have this little problem that I can not play in MRHYBRID mode, only if the charger is connected, and I do not see high quality videos or play if it is in discret mode, if the A / C is connected.
       
      Any idea what it could be?
       
      I have the latest version of Bios and ECF
      I've been looking for custom-made Vbios but I can not find anything.
      Thank you

      Hey guys! Long time no see! Been ages since I've been here and wow has this place changed! @Briankeep up the great work!  I've been pulled away from my computer passion by raising 3 kids! All 6 and under.  Crazy how time flies! 
       
      On to what brings me here.  Love you oming for some ideas.
       
      My X7200 was recently shutting down randomly. The num lock and caps lock would start flashing and then it'd shut down. CPU and GPU Temps looked good, but fans were running a lot.  I figured whatever was hot was something HW Info couldn't see or read.  
       
       
      I repasted my GPUs and CPU, put in new thermal pads as well. Unfortunately when I tightened the CPU heatsink, I must have over tightened a screw because it pulled the screw sleeve on the mobo out. Temps are still good, idle around 33°C, and fans run full bore all the time. So it may not have quite enough pressure on a mofset or something. On the plus side, I let the computer sit on for 16-18 hours idle,and it didn't shut down, which solved one issue and created another.

      Would I be okay to superglue it back down to the mobo? Should I use some other adhesive? Then it would create a tad more pressure, evenly, and possibly solve my fan issue. Damn these old computers. Purchasing a newmobo would probably be more expensive than it's worth.
       
      I really need to retire this thing, but it's served me faithfully since Oct 2012. Eventually I'll move to something more mobile and a desktop.
