    No

    LVDS screen means you must use SG mode.

    Screen is driven by Intel HD

    oh i get it . so all the signal passes through SG (intel) so the bandwith is not enough to send sli .

    one more question.
    i just bought an m17x R4 with an 120hz display (edp) and a 980m . so i am thinking of getting the 1070

    in this case what exactly will be needed to change in the bios?
    1 . go to pure uefi mode (no legacy support)
    2. what about screen mode? what is the correct?

    Pure UEFI is correct and the screen mode SHOULD already be PEG/dGPU mode since 120hz panel is done through eDP which doesnt work with Intel HD.

    You'll also likely want ot pick up the 330w AC adapter for full performance when PROCHOT is disabled.

    yes thats what i beleive 120hz should mean edp already. so i only need to turn the laptop to Full uefi and reinstall windows as MBR wont work

    by the way i see 980m is selling for like 400 dollars now? thats a good rebate off the 1070 i will buy if i manage to sell the 980
