    Eurocom is now selling gtx 1070 for the p370sm3! I guess that's what I'm going for :D
    Can I run this in SLI in the future?
    Do I need to make any modification? or is it only the heatsink? Need details on this.


    Oh nice find! I would like an answer for this as well, thanks!

    They posted earlier all their cards do not have the bridge connector.

    How much would my laptop go for roughly if I sold it (Europe price)?
    Not sure if I should wether keep it and upgrade the GPU or sell it and get a new Clevo with 1080. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    I'd definately keep it and upgrade the GPU, the new intel CPUs are hardly faster and all in all not noticeably better (if you already have an SSD and 16GB RAM).

    Yeah that was my initial thought, but then got me to think, a new 1070 card will cost 1k (bear in my mind I live in Europe) and if I get about 2k (just estimating) for my laptop, that would leave me 3k to spend on a new clevo. Trying to weigh in whats good here.

    So far we have GTX 1060 and gtx 1070 working in the following models:
    P150EM
    P170EM
    P15xSM
    P15xSM-A
    P17xSM
    P17xSM-S
    ‎P37xSM3 (eDP panel)
    P370EM3 (eDP panel)
    P570WM (eDP panel)
    P870DM
    All of these models require our standard MXM3 GPU 82x105mm and require heatsink modifications before cards can be used.

    P7xxZM and P7xxDM models are not supported at this time as we are unable to modify current heatsinks‎ to accomodate 10 series cards.

    I'm not an expert but I doubt that you can get 2k...1,5 maybe...

    Why do you even need to upgrade if you got two 980m's in your NB? Should actually be up to pretty much any game out there? ;)

    I have two 780m's ;) I think you've mixed me up with andrew who got the 980m.

    Edit: 1,5? hmm need someone "expert" to give me better value :p I cant post on price check because of 100 post. still 2,5k for a new clevo? so hard to tell :(
