    As the title says, it´s a modded .inf for the M15x with a GTX970m.
    Download the matching driver version from Nvidias site, extract its contents and replace the file located in Display.Driver folder.
    Just don´t forget to disable Driver Signature Enforcement before installing or it won´t work.
    I´ll try to keep this post up to date.
    The latest file is for 436.30 Windows 10 64b driver.
    Enjoy.-

    Why are you use section from M17 R2(0688) with built-in graphics, but not from M18(05AB) without it?

    When I made the first modded inf for 419.67 ver I tried all sections and bench them in order to choose one. They all performed practically the same on my laptop, but had one bsod in a pass using the original section to the 05AB model. I don´t know if it was due to that particular section selection or if it was a result of another thing, but since then I stuck with the second section option. I guess drivers have come a long way ever since and maybe, I need to bench them again to get the best marginal result available. As soon as I have some spare time I´ll do it again.-

    Benched diferent sections options and landed in the same result, up to 0.54% (less than 1%) performance increase with second section selection.
