    It exists, which is kind of the point.

    It exists with performance compromises which has never kept people in this space happy and would require a PCB redesign and a chassis difference between the same models in a line.

    Im just reading excuses here.

    Since when has a factory BIOS ever held anyone back that didnt want to get more power out of their cards?

    The point still remains, it exists and those that have it, love it. Even going as far a to buy a 1K zbox just for the GPU and scrapping the rest of it.

    Gecube is making a similarly restricted 150W TDP 1070 in true MXM 3.0b size, we will see if it starts burning motherboards if it gets an unlocked power vbios mod. The point is not what "the slot" can draw but how the power delivery in the motherboard can handle the draw to "the slot". Maybe we'll see some of the just-enough designs (mid range units) will be incapable of sustaining 150W over the long term

    The point about power delivery is an interesting one.
    "We need more board space for power delivery"
    Vs
    "The 980M can make do with half the FETs missing up the top"
    I think there's more to that story

    As Meaker has said many times
    Clevo decided to make the pcb size bigger for their 1080
    Clevo decided to use that large pcb size throughout their lineup not caring whether the 1060 or 1070 actually needed it
    Clevo decides things for the good of clevo bottom line, not the aftermarket upgrader

    I don't like the outcome for my personal goals but I don't get steamed up about it, its just business. Its not like there are tens of thousands of aftermarket upgraders like there are with LSx crate engines, high performance laptop GPUs are extremely niche and the product cycle very short
