    Still pretty steep but good to know, who is the supplier by the way?

    They can't make things easy for us can they lol.

    What if we merely needed a replacement card to perform out of warranty repairs like say replacing a card damaged by overclocking or what a repair shop might do

    I don't think they can do a custom order for us, a shot might be worth. Also the news was GeCube is producing the usual 1070 MXM3.1b, Still no solid proof of existence of that GPU, might be more clear once we kick into Q2-3 2017.

    Thanks does anyone know any design goals of the GeCube 1070 MXM3.1b? I think we all want to avoid a unit with an added power connector. Does anyone know if PcPartner has been contacted for standalone Pascal MXM orders?

    Just to let you know, I have contacted Zotac, I told them I broke by mistake the Zotac Mini PC graphics card...
    *I have told them that I will send the unit without the graphics card.

    They sent me an RMA so I will be returning the box next week, they will charge me 900USD to have it fixed.

    And because I will not use that anymore...
    Is anyone interesting in getting the Zotac computer for that price once I get it back?

    Please let me know to reserve it...

    Thanks!

    I have a question, would the Zotac Zbox still work with an older MXM module? Once I get my hands on one of these buggers, I'm planning to switch the graphics cards in my Alien and the Zbox since my dad wants a mini PC to serve as a media server, and I want the graphics card out of the stupid thing. Would the Zbox still work with a GTX 860M in it or no? I don't want the Zbox to be useless once I cannibalize its graphics card because it'll be hard for me to find someone to sell it to if that happens.

    I believe Striker1234 said that it will not display anying without the factory card installed most likely due to vendor lockout in the bios which is absurdly Anti-Consumer

    Well crap. Is there any way to get the card by itself then? I don't want to pay for the Zbox and then not be able to put the mini PC to use after I pull its graphics card out of it.
