    Anyone tried nVidia 980M GTX (Eurocom) MXM 3.x for Alienware 17 on Dell M6800?

    Our Clevo cards do work, because we load the DELL/HP vbios. (Same vbios, for same chipset)

    Yes. This has been done. 1060N should work as well.

    Hello, first of all:
    Nice thread, very informative.
    I am getting my M6800 soon (currently using M6600 + gtx680 - information I got form this forums too) and wanted to ask, if anyone has tried some other mxm cards such as:
    gtx 880m, gtx 780m, gtx 870m, gtx 770m
    The 980m is very attractive, but currently out of budget.
    Thanks upfront for answer.
    (if you ask, yes I have tried google and all what I could find was about M6700)

    It only works on M6700 with IPS display, and there are some issues (i.e. brightness control does not work).
    @iieeann spent quite a while trying to get it to work in (non-IPS) M6700 and eDP M6800 with no success. http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/graphics-card-upgrade-for-m6800.806352/page-4
    Unfortunately, MXM is not as cross-compatible as PCI Express cards in desktops are. Too much has changed in the Pascal series of GPUs.

    Actually he said he has a problem trying to install windows... Has anyone tried to make this work with linux? AFAIK if you can get to the installation screen, and then the installer fails.. it is working in the m6800... he should have tried with linux and the latest 390 driver. I rarely use windows... I could survive without booting into it all together if needed... however.. I have a hunch I could get around his install error.
