    What about the 1060/1070 working on the R2?

    1060/1070 arent supported as they lack LDVS from what Ive seen on this board.

    Oh my, that would be awesome. I'd love it if I could upgrade my M18x-R2 to a GTX 1060 or higher, even if that means dealing with Optimus.

    That would make me stop thinking about going Clevo and keep using that M18x-R2 for another while longer.
