    Hi guys...Things are going OK on my end. However I have a request. Does anyone have the full advertisement from the MSI website about the GT80 and the GT72 before the release of the 10xx series before they changed it. I need the whole page if anyone has it not a clip of part. The one that use to be in the lounge for the GT80 desktop would be great.

    The only thing I have is the screenshots I took back in 2016. http://imgur.com/a/OiHau
    You can try checking web.archive.org but last I checked they didn't have any copies of the model pages, and the Google caches have been updated to the new version by this point.

    Hello.

    Even though I've read here that you have to pester them to get the upgrade going, I've been patient and waiting for them to call me. In the mean time a question crossed my mind.

    Since the upgrade is suppose to be good for the next 2 iterations of the video card, has anyone heard when the 1100s might be slated to show up? I can't find anything on the interwebs.

    Thanks for any input.

    Nvidia has never implied anything but a 2018 commercial release.

    I'm pretty sure MS would've sat on the GT75 for a while, if Volta was imminent.

    Thank you Kevin.

    Since I'm waiting for them to contact me and at the speed they seem to be moving it just MAY BE 2018 when I get a call. LOL

    The MSI 1070's from their Vortex G65VR went in easy into an old Clevo and work great - even on its designed-for-75W 2 piece 670M heatsinks - using 110W+ the cards sit on ~79C/86C (same temps as the original GPUs actually)

    I cbf going back and finding my posts from late last year when I said I strongly suspected MSI was totally lying about how different the Pascal architecture was and how it needed a new chassis behind it... anyway here I am putting TWO in a 5 year old Clevo model with an Ivy Bridge CPU and getting perfectly normal 1070 SLI graphics scores in 3dmark off one 330W powerbrick ...

    I know what you mean. Before my GT80 I had a GT780R. It came with a 560M card in it. I called MSI and if it could upgraded. I was told no because of the heat issue. Well the laptop stopped working, it was under warranty so it was sent in to MSI. When it came back it had at 67?M something in it.. It ran fine until one of the fans stopped working. Since it was no longer under warranty and I wanted an SLI machine, I got the GT 80.

    So I was told by MSI "No it can't be upgrade: but yet they put the next gen card in.

    Go figure...

    The machine usually can take an upgrade (as many users here did) but MSI usually tries not to do it unless they have no choice (parts no longer available).
    You could order a replacement fan for your old system to keep it running longer, and perhaps resell it.
