In search of a vbios from an Alienware 15 r1 (I think?) with either a M295x or a M390x

    Hello all:

    As title states, I'm looking for a vbios. I am fairly sure the 15r1 had a soldered-on GPU, and so the vbios might be rolled up in the main bios (I've heard that can be the case).

    But if its possible, does anyone here have the capacity to pull a vbios (if it works) from either of those mentioned GPUs? They are both Amethyst XT GPU cores, and that GPU core also came in the FirePro w7170m. I have looked at the vbios for the w7170m, but am looking for the vbios now from this particular Alienware laptop!

    Thanks!

    It's rolled up into the main system BIOS, I tried to dump it when I had a 15 R1

    Thanks. That's what I was afraid of!
