    Just wondering if the MSI GX60 supports eDP somehow if there even is a connector for it.
    There almost no information regarding this, all I know is that it uses the AMD iGPU same way how Enduro works and switches to AMD dGPU when it needs it.

    Hi,
    On GX60, connector is LVDS, and not EDP. Just like GT60/70.
    It works exactly the same way as GT60, meaning you cannot disable IGPU at all.
    Drivers for AMD APU for win 10 are really bad, you need to do a driver trick to get them to work...

    Man, GX60 has a long history and some of you still have it. :)

    Yeah, chassis was nice at the time, and so was the A8 5550m es unlocked... It's a bummer they never released any FX mobile CPU compatible with this bad boy. The AMD APU was so slow, barely matching i5 dual core...

    You could overclock that A8 to some pretty moronic levels and beat first gen i7 processor LOL.
    @Arrrrbol got the A8 to some ridicules levels in some mid range HP Pavilion and then he threw it on the floor breaking the motherboard in rage most likely because of World of Tanks.

    Good times

    You couldn't overclock the 3550MX much in that thing because the VRM was too weak, had too many stability issues if you went over 2.7/2.8 on all cores. If you didn't run anything involving the GPU then it would do about 3.2GHz.

    The 920XM smokes it in every way though, even without overclocking. IPC is better, it has twice the threads and more overclocking headroom.

    Also, that thing died because there is a short circuit to the chipset that caused it to overheat and fry its self. There is a blob in the chassis where it has melted it. Amazing HP motherboard quality.
