    Hi!
    Anyone know of any newer card I can use on this machine (even if I have to flash the vbios in order for it to work??)

    Making a virtual reality game and need a laptop that can at least handle it while on the go!
    Scored this on ebay for 90 free shipping!
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAGER-CLEVO-W87UC-Laptop-1-73GHz-4GB-RAM-120GB-SSD-Win-10-Pro-Radeon-HD-5800-j/303171069469?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Thank You In Advance!!

    would this work???


    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M

    or would a 5gb card even work in this?

    any suggestions because this is what I bought..

    Also I have a i7 2820qm coming to me also..
    Would this even work?

    So Sorry for all the questions I am a newb here lol

    Sorry to tell you this but this laptop only accepts 1st Gen cpus and you bought a 2nd Gen.
    I think the best graphics card you can get is a gtx 680m, someone correct me if I'm wrong

    Unless I am mistaken 2820qm wont work in that its a 1st Gen i7 system.

    I am not familiar with the system but it originally came with 280m as one of the available options, and while I may definitely be wrong here most of the time laptops of that era capped out around 680m or so. Usually had something to do with Sound not working / IRQ conflicts with later cards

    To be frank you might've been better off with anything else especially for VR development. Something like a m6700 are pretty cheap.

    CPU? sure

    980m GPU? nope 7970m is the max on that machine and only certain versions at that.

    M6700 works with the m5000m / 980m

    m6600 is a solid machine in principle just limited for its capability due to the bios it has, m6700 is much better in that regard.

    You will likely need to mod .inf but otherwise should work (980m)
