Clevo W870CU MXM upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


I have a Clevo W870CU laptop with a Core i7-720QM processor and an AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870. Since the graphics card is pretty old I thought about upgrading it. Does anybody know which MXM modules are compatible with this laptop?


Thanks a lot,

I'm currently trying to get a 7970M to work in my W870CU. It does seem possible from reading around but I am not quite there yet.

There is some good reading here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/official-sager-np8760-clevo-w870cu-owners-lounge.423943/

Update: I worked it out in the end, summary here:
