  1. Thank you for your answer if I understood correctly it is necessary to have an unlocked bios (for me it's version A11 I believe, that's what I see under information system). So This will solve the problem "can not detect MXM card GOP driver" and allow me to disable load legacy option rom.
  2. Nop the 1060 But i have the same issue with the legacy boot option rom, i can't disabled it and I get 8 bips on boot with the new card So i need the unlocked vbios to do that, i you have a valid link to dl it I'll take that Also i don't find the PEG display option on the bios menu, so i'm not sur that i have enabled
  3. I can't download the zip file on the link you provided for the gtx 680m. any help please ? also the PEG display is not available on my bios, is that a problem since a have a stock 120hz ?
  4. on notebookcheck : https://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html i found this 3d mark 11 : gtx 980 laptop = 17200 3d mark 11 : gtx 1060 laptop = 14762
  5. I'll wait for the stress test on the 1070, i hope it runs fine The 1060 is less powerful the the 980
  6. Here are my laptop specs : Alienware M17xr4 - I7 3740 - GTX 680m - 16 Go RAM - 256 SSD Samsung 840 Pro - 750 HDD - Full HD 3D 120 hz is that ok ?
  7. Well Done and great work !!! could you please give us a step by step guide for the installation of this 1070, I have an m17x r4 120 hz and a gtx 680m and i would like to buy a gtx 1070 and install it on my laptop.

    yes that's what i did so is there a way to bypass this control or at least increase the power limit (let's say to 90W).

    I don't think so, there is clearly a power throtteling that was captured with EVGA when FS is on also i can't find why should i change my CPU, I compared it with other newer CPU and they pretty the same

    try using msi afterburner with fire strike and look at the hardware monitoring (right side). you should see power limit. mine has many spiks during benchmark

    you are right An0npl4y, that was PSU holding me back. I overclocked the CPU to get more fps for my game (The Elder Scrolls online) cause it seems thats it was CPU dependant and rely only on one core :/ So when i tried Fire Srike i got 9k score (vs 9k5 when done for the first time). I switched back to default XTU, stopthrottle and the bios setting for CPU overclock and with a litte OC on the GPU i get 10k score http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/20272148 but the problem still. how do I up my CPU to make CPU dependant games run better. I checked out and find that mine was not that different than an i7 6700hq http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-6700HQ-vs-Intel-Core-i7-3740QM/m34954vsm2919
