    11 series refresh could be as early as July, if the rumour mill is to be believed. I wouldn't hold your breath on a 1080 or a ti variant working in the m17x R4 however... the ~125w limit on the mxm port is a bit of a show-stopper.
    I do recall someone testing a 1080 on the R4... I think they said it "worked" but quickly aged/degraded the motherboard... Anyone else remember that?

    perhaps solder on higher rated VRMs? or maybe a GTX 1170 if they don't kill of MXM completely for brands who do care like Clevo and Eurocom?
