    I see you mention Acer. Not my cup of tea (still a Joke) but I wrote a posts about Acer vs. Alienware a few years ago in the nVidia GTX 10xx Series notebook discussion thread. Nailed to the wall for the 3d time in a row:D I mean I was one of the few who saw this come:)

    Now it is determined even once again. Acer beat Alienware yet again!! For the 3rd time in a row.

    Who needs more evidence that Dell are lurking on these forums? I already noticed that whatever I suggest, they do the opposite, but now we know why Dell hired an ex-Acer phantom exec to replace Azor! :)

    I had fun with MXM-A up to the 7770M cards.

    Same here, I put a Gtx 980 non m into a Acer 8940g, has an mxm a slot (first gen i7 series). Pulled 120w from the slot, way more than the artificial ‘35w’ limit it supposedly had lol. Man I remember the days that laptop motherboards were actually reliable which could go far beyond spec and not just hot bga trash...


    Then again I’ve given into bga trash as there isn’t an alternative for lightweight portable systems anymore unlike the haswell days lol.

    The Mxm slot feeds just 19v anyway there is no filtering so your VRM on the card is doing that job. That's why the slot can seem to keep going.

    Technically the limit is based on your charger wattage then I’m guessing? Does the 19v rail run directly from power in?

    The exact details depend on the machine but it would. The traces and connector would also have a limit as would the heatsink.

    Interesting, I always thought the power was regulated in some way through the motherboard as well as the gpu...

    Soldered RAM is an abomination and this behavior must be punished. Laptops are not smartphones and should not be designed after them.

    This is also not a sustainable long term business strategy, and is going to generate a lot of eWaste.
