    I got a question regarding gtx 1060 working in Alienware m18x r2.

    Eurocom website says " To use the GTX 1060 video card you MUST be running in Optimus mode, and running the unlocked bios and youyr LCD panel must be eDP "

    Is the edp lcd external ? or using built in alienware m18x r2 lcd ?

    If running in Optimus mode there is no need of EDP lcd screen(video signal is converted and routed by iGpu), surely a mistake.
