    The Tesla card cannot output to a display directly. You can use it only with Optimus enabled, operating through the iGPU. In the M6800, the iGPU can only drive the internal display and VGA port, so you would be limited to those. In other laptops, it may be able to drive other display outputs. (I.e. in Precision 7710, you can also use the iGPU with the HDMI, mDP, and USB-C ports.)

    the card isn't able to output video, lane are physcically cut, the only thing you can do is to use optimus, that way the video signal is carried through pcie connexion to the iGPU that display the video on a display.
