    Hello Dell M4700, M4800 users.

    AMD's brand new RX560 MXM 3.1 graphic card is now on sale for 1200 yuan ($180 USD) on taobao.

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?sp...GcrSMn&id=560931870718&ns=1&abbucket=6#detail

    This card seems to fit M4700 and M4800... or even possibly M4600 which works fine with AMD M5100.
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-RX-560-Laptop.194834.0.html

    Is there anyone who has tried this card yet?
    It looks better & cheaper than Quadro M2200M card which is not available for sale.

    No point in getting the HD7750 when you can already get the m5100 unless it overclocks better than the m5100, for like 100 USD locally.

    M5100 is capable of 1Ghz+ on the core but its not a great choice if your wanting to play the latest titles even at 720p@low.

    The RX560 MXM is interesting though, and Valuxin is waiting for his in the mail to test in the m4600 to the best of my understanding.

    Cool,
    Yeah RX560 seems like an amazing deal for the price!
    For $180, you can get a card that beats M2200M.
    RX560 has 4GB and specs which is better than that of M2200M...

    and I think it will work on M4600... which works with M5100.
    If it works on M4600, it's going to be a fantastic investment for me.

    RX560 seems to be available in MXM Type A 3.1 and 3.0?

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?sp...1bBGq1&id=560931870718&ns=1&abbucket=6#detail

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?sp...1bBGq1&id=560993555357&ns=1&abbucket=6#detail

    This seller has two listings for RX560 which he claims to have MXM 3.0 and 3.1 in title.
    But both description says it's 3.0...
    I wonder if that has anything to do with compatibility with M4600.

    He's selling this unknown MXM type A radeon card called E8860 too:
    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?sp...R1ZiVz&id=529723094847&ns=1&abbucket=6#detail

    I think this one's a variant of M5100.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up on RX 560 working on the m4600. The bios is way more restricting than its successors. Otherwise we would have the 965m working on more than just windows xp.

    Mild optimism would probably be OK :)

    Either way the m4700 has been getting cheaper these days as well but I think the heatsink is better on the m4600

    Hopefully M4600 can work with that...

    A fine M4700 still costs $250.
    M4700 is better than M4600 for sure.. and M4700 works with K2200M which sometimes sells under $200. K2200M is as good as M2000M.

    I'm sticking with M4600 which I bought for $120. It has 2760QM i7 CPU with 2.4GHz speed. This is sufficient for 90% coding & UI design task for me.
    M4600 is built to last with its rock solid metal housing... and it's indeed still lasting.
    M4600 was $1600 USD when it first came out.

    does GTX 965M work on M4600 with Windows XP?
    That's crazy... I heard it doesn't work.
    It works on M4700 though.

    Check out the GPU upgrade thread for the m4600 for details with the 965m.

    You can use throttle stop to push 2.8ghz 4 core turbo, I have the same CPU in mine. Of course the best is the 2860qm which can sustain 3.4ghz but its a bit pricy at 100 usd. 1600mhz ram is also the max ram speed the m4600 can use.

    Rx 560 would be a great send off for the m4600.

    Thanks I will check it out .
    965M on M4600 would be amazing too.. although Windows 10 is way better than Windows XP can ever be....

    I've seen a few 2860QM M4600 selling for $120 on Ebay.
    All M4600 without HDD and adapter sells for $120 on Ebay now...
    If you know a little bit about computer, you know it's a no brainer.

    M4600 was $1600 USD when first came out and it still worth that price for what it is despite of the electronic's price always falling down.
    No other plastic laptop will replace value & design of M4600 which is already perfect.
