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.

      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

      So I just bought a clevo p750zm and I ordered a p4000 mxm, I checked that my mb supported eDP and it did. I was wondering if you had to do mods to get the p4000 to work or is that pretty much it? (I'm pretty new to the laptop modding scene)
       
      Cheers

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      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?

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?
