    Don’t bother, reduces CPU performance for an exploit that will likely never be used on you

    That is still pretty cool that Dell would release an update like that. Guess they have not forgotten about their end users.

    Is anyone able to check if they added support for the 980M with these?

    If not is it possible that someone can update this with an unlocked version for testing?

    The Unlocked A11 Bios is all you really need since it supports GTX 980M in Windows 7 legacy mode which is what I am using right now.
    And in case you meant allowing support for 980M driver update then that was also possible with the Unlocked A11.
    Just like @Raidriar said, "reduces CPU performance for an exploit that will likely never be used on you"

    Huh? 980M support was added by swick and I in modded A11. I think @Rengsey R. H. Jr. was talking about Alienware 18, not M18x R2. Latest M18x R2 BIOS is A12

    Alienware did release A13 also for M18X R2. But like @Raidriar mentioned above, Dell didn't release any support for 980m on the M18X R2. It was @Swick1981 and @Raidriar who added support for the 980m , and myself , the tester.

    Can someone with more knowledge, dig into and see if anything is updated, except the CPU microcode?
