    I own a Clevo P750DM with GTX 970M. I have seen on Clevo website that P750DM2 has been released which has GTX 1070. So I want to know that can I upgrade my laptop to GTX 1070. I do know that the process may be complicated but is it possible?

    Given that the 1070 is not in the "old" MXM standard format, it is impossible for Clevo cards. I read somewhere that MSI has special MXM format Pascal cards to fulfill their 2 year upgrade promise, but I have no idea whether it is true or if it would work in your Clevo.

    Nvidia says what 1070 and 1080 will based on desktop GPU and they are both require extra power supply.

    So i think best way for you replace laptop.

    Hi it is too early for us to know if it would be recognized in the older model. We have not received any feedback yet.

    One thing is for certain we cannot sell any 10 series video cards for at least 2more months. These cards for now are set aside at the factory for the new models for awhile. Sorry, however this is all we know for now. Thanks

    One of our guys here checked on this, and it doesn't look good, at least not for upgrades direct from Sager. I believe @sirana is correct, that the MSI cards will be compatible but the Sager ones going forward will not.

    As far as power is concerned my laptop supports 980M which is 100 watt and 1070 laptop is 150 watt. So in that matter the only thing that will be required is a power brick upgrade.:bigwink:

    Problem is you need a extra cable which will connect to GPU but youreally laptop with 980m doesn't have it.

    It's the same power cord like with clevo desktop 980.
