Did you ever get an answer on this? Even if it does work what GPU are you running? The R1 was either 780m or 880m unless you upgraded to 980m and I wouldn't want to be trying to push games at 4k on any of those cards TBH

Tech at XOTIC PC said it can only be upgraded up to 980m and display cannot because the chipsets are different. No 1070 or 1080 because of chipsets as well. I bet someone has done it though.

The heatsink for the GTX 880m, and the placement of the electrical components on the video card is different. The heatsink wouldn't match up with the GTX 1060 without cutting some parts out of the heatsink is what I was told by a vendor on ebay and that you also have to use the 120hz display in order to run the GTX 1060 MXM. That being said I wonder if the same would work with a 1070 or 1080 MXM...
