  1. Humm, you're right I tested it in my M18XR1 with 780M and it didn't work, so we still need mods for 780 and 880M GPUs. Btw J95 sometimes used notebook version driver to do mods too( aka drver 382.19). I dont see any significant changes in my 3DMark results between notebook and desktop drivers so I use whatever is available.
  2. Geforce Game Ready Driver v. 388.00 launched Driver works just fine in any Alienware machine with GTX 980M installed, no modding needed again. it seems that all Nvidia drivers from now on will compatible with "980M/Alienware", modding time is over guys Game ReadyProvides the optimal gaming experience for Destiny 2 and Assassin’s Creed Origins http://www.nvidia.com.br/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/388.00/388.00-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe&lang=br&type=geforcem
  3. Unbelievable.... The new official hotfix Nvidia GPU 387.98 driver officially supports Alienware laptops with GM204 GPUs (965M, 970M, 980M), M18X-R2 included, just tested now and works right off the bat no modding needed in my old Alienware M18X-R2 See for yourselves guys... http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4563/~/geforce-hotfix-driver-version-387.98
  4. Did you try using the 385.69 driver mod? OBS 20.0.1 NVENC encoder is working just fine with my M18XR2 980M SLI. Nvidia driver link included now
  5. I'm uploading new mod file drivers for Alienware win10 PEG and Optimus mod files(Optimus not tested): GeForce driver 385.69 Game Ready Provides the optimal gaming experience for Project Cars 2, Call of Duty: WWII open beta, Total War: WARHAMMER II, Forza Motorsport 7, EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone, FIFA 18, Raiders of the Broken Planet, and Star Wars Battlefront 2 open beta Game ready VRProvides the optimal gaming experience for EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone and From Other Suns open beta Alienware: nv_dispi.inf (including nvdmi.inf) PEG/Dedicated All Models nvcvi.inf: Optimus Alienware 17 / 05AA (only) GTX 980M - 970M - 965M nv_dispi.inf_v385.69_Win10_PEG_Dedicated_Alienware.zip nvcvi.inf_v385.69_Win10_Optimus_Alienware_17.zip GeForce 385.69 Win10
  6. Next time with new Nvidia drivers released I will try make a Optimus version too.
  7. Why did you use Optimus anyway? Would'n be better if you change to PEG in BIOS to fully utilizes your GPU? I think the only reason to utilize Optimus if you put the new 10 Nvidia series(1050, 1060 and 1070) in some nom eDP Alienware panels.
  8. Again now I'm uploading new mod drivers for Alienware win10: GeForce driver 385.41 Game Ready Provides the optimal gaming experience for Destiny 2 PC Open Beta, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, ARK: Survival Evolved, F1 2017, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, and Quake Champions Early Access.

  12. 900M Requirements: Flash latest @Prema's v2 980M & 970M (Please consider donating to Prema) What happens if I try to flash the old SVL7 VBios with this driver? Black screens? I wanted to try some 1.000V instead of actual Prema's 1.062v bios to see if somewhat improves cooling performance.
  13. I tested both GeForce 376.19 and 376.33 drivers in my M18X-R2 and I can say that while 376.19 driver is working properly, the same not apply with the 376.33 driver because when you try to install it only updates the nvidia high def sound leaving the video driver untouched. But at least the 376.19 is enough for now I guess.
  14. Hi folks of TechInferno, some of you users of a M18XR2, can you still can use the HDMI in function ? I cant get it to work not matter what I try... could it be a problem with new drivers or 980M itself ? If possible someone who still have this notebook could test it ? Thanks.
  15. Just noticed something now.... a very old feature on M18x-r2m, the hdmi in is not working anymore. Just tried to connect a ps3 on hdmi in but nothing happens. Could be the 980M card fault? Can someone test the hdmi in feature on a M18x to see if its working?
  16. Are you using Clevo or Alienware version 2 of Prema BIOS? Are you need to use HWInfo64 to 2nd gpu fan to work? If not how many C temperature gpu reaches at full load?
  17. Throttling is more frequent with SLI configs, It would be very good if 980M SLI setups are free from throttle too. I think I'll have time this weekend to test Win7 legacy install to test this theory.
  18. I made one myself for PEG Mod win7/8.1. You can download it if its your setup. nv_dispi.rar
  19. Swick1981, How can I get the M18X-R1 updated bios for testing? A friend of mine wants test it with a 980M in his R1. Thanks.
  20. @J95 You're right it was just a temporary fix as it throttle again after the cold boot. Reinstalling the drivers seems to fix the driver somewhat till next day when all things go back to normal again (throttling) My friend's notebook with 780M SLI still working good tough.
  21. Something is different with this driver because although throttling apparently dimmed, gpu utilization also decreased in some games Observed good results with SLI 780M also in M18X-R1
  22. It seems incredible but please someone confirm this? With this driver GeForce 364.51 and Prema 2.0 980M SLI flashed in M18X-R2 , throttling is gone in games I tested like Ryse and Witcher 3 and even in 3DMark test the gpu clocks don't decreased in benhmark test. Tested again in Sniper Elite 3 2560x1080p 4x supersampling and 98% utilization from both gpus and no throtte is occuring. Actually is hard to believe that Nvidia finally made some decent drivers since forever...
