    Might be a stupid question . . .

    Do RTX 2080 Super MXM 3.1 cards exist? And if so where can I buy one?

    I've found a few references to their existence but can't find anything definitive. Eurocom and RJtech only have RTX 2080 (non-super) cards . . .

    Yeah the 2080S were quite scarce. And even if you managed to find them in stock, the SI would often not sell them as stand alone cards, which was a bummer.

    Odd time to be looking for a top end card.

    Mainly trying to figure out what options there are. Mobile 3000 series looks to be underwhelming compared to a 200W RTX 2080 S. Compatibility and pricing are unknown and not guaranteed either.

    Clevo RTX 2080's are MXM 3.1. What is MXM 4.0 - never heard of it. Is a 4.0 card backwards compatible in a 3.1 slot?

    Sounds like a custom name for the new design clevo cards. Not really a standards thing.

    I'm more interested in if there is a difference in pinout/protocol between 3.1 and 4.0. But as Meaker said, it's almost certainly MXM 3.1 standard . . . considering the laptops it was sold in.

    The card will physically fit in a P870TM1 so, I'm not worried about that. It's all moot though if there's not place to actually buy one from.

    I found some Quadro RTX 5000 MXM cards on eBay, not sure if those work.
