1. Do you plan to purchase new hardware (e.g. desktop video card or notebook w/discrete graphics) that has AMD's newest Polaris or NVIDIA's Pascal GPU?
Will get desktop AMD Polaris graphics card ASAP.
Will get desktop NVIDIA Pascal graphics card ASAP.
Plan to upgrade to AMD Polaris mGPU ASAP.
Plan to upgrade to NVIDIA Pascal mGPU ASAP.
I'm going to take a wait and see approach based on reviews.
I don't plan to upgrade yet.
I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
Have a great day
Привет. Помогите, мне грустно.
Существует clevo p150em, недавно обновленный с 7970 до 8970 м (от 150 см)
Bios, R.2.0 / 1.02.17EC v3b / 1.02.11EC.
Когда он был установлен 7970 м, в BIOS на линии gpu это было 7970 м. После установки 8970m, NVIDIA пишет вместо 8970m.
Драйверы на 8970m не установлены, либо синий экран, либо ноутбук замерзает. Windows 10 1713.
Я пробовал разные версии драйверов, все равно. Что вы посоветуете?
8970m vbios VER015.041.000.000.044964 BR44964.009 it s DELL?
ps. when I bought 7970m for a place of 670m. At 7970m there was also a problem with the drivers, but I somehow skipped it.
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.
I tried to extract the .bin from the .exe (on Dell's website) using PhoenixTool v.273, and in a way it worked... I want to change the TDP values on my 1060mq but when I tried to open the .bin in Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker, this is what happened. Can somebody help me? Here's the original .exe and the .bin. Thanks!
(note: I wasn't able to extract the bios using AFUWINGUI64 or any other similar tool as I think Dell has some type of guard or protection against that, suspecting that's also the cause of my current issues...)
