    What parts? May be interested
    Edit: I'll bring this up again, but it likely isn't outputting to internal display because its a Zotac MXM built for external display, so you'll likely have to find a way to enable eDP output

    I am thinking that the bios would have to come from laptop that has a gtx 1080 , similar to the Zotac.

    The GTX 1070 from Gecube (new and quality one, not the bad one) would likely curvestomp the nerfed GTX 1080 in any way shape or form.

    I had a feeling the OG M17xR4 should run this card. :D

    Likely not, even the 1070 needs a fully uefi environment. It seems to work in PEG mode but only via hdmi, likely need the msi vbios for internal display.
