    Hello,

    I am thinking about upgrading my laptops GPU's. (Alienware M18x R2)
    Currently I have 2 AMD Radoen HD 7970M Crossfire.

    I could not find any info about what cards would be supported.
    Would it be possible to swap them for AMD Radoen R7 series?

    --EDIT--
    Found an old email from dell when I wanted to change my processor. They stated that the processor is molded onto the motherboard and the same applies to the GPU.

    Did you contact Dell support about GPU upgrades? Dell is very IP secure and doesn't give much info about GPU upgrades and any upgrades will have to be done through Dell/Alienware support.
