    Has anyone tried flashing a full "notebook" 2070 vbios onto the Y740's 2070MQ? Or maybe a higher TDP MQ bios? Since the temps are already pretty low on the MQ, I could see the device potentially benefiting from being able to pull more watts and such.

    If nobody has, anyone interested in trying it? Anyone know much about it? How risky is it?

    There was a guy who flashed the razer blade 15 2070 Max-Q 90W vbios into theirs. Can't find the video anymore but here is another guy who did it with their Tongfang (CyberPowerPC) (https://www.win-raid.com/t4387f36-S...ax-Q-W-to-Razer-blade-W-TDP-and-ful-MaxP.html) so you can look to that. With what I remember, he seemed to have lost some control of overclocking with MSI Afterburner when he did that and the mini displayport lost its functionality (same with this guy). Other than that, no issues.

    2070 MQ in the y740 is already 90w so there wouldn't be much point unfortunately
