    Thats the only way to have it working in the AW18, but thats not really ideal for most.

    What you get is not consistent. For some people its fine, for others the input lag is too great, and addition to or sometimes on its own you lose 10-15% performance, for me its simply unacceptable.

    Would this work on the m17x r4 also? This “dell” variant or the msi 1060? Thanks a bunch!!

    I only know as far as the alienware 17r1 but so far the m17xr4 has been able to do everything the r1 can do better so I don't see why not. But I can't speak from experience. You have a 1070 in your r4 right? Is it the black pcb ebay one? That one is the best next to the zotac. The green pcb one is an Aetina card rebranded by eurocom and it sucks.

    sorry maybe it's answered somewhere but i looked and couldn't find any mention of it. Did you try 3D, does it work with this card?

    You mean VR? 1070M will run Oculus on the R4 if you update the USB drivers. Check my past post.
