    Yes..but I think MSI Titan's exterior design is better.
    It would be nice to know if Titan can use two P5000 instead of two 1080.

    is the P3000 the same chip and cuda cores as the 1050 ti? If so does it come in a 4GB variety? Lastly is there some exclusive element of the Quadro line that you need in an MXM-A?

    P3000 is currently availabe in MXM-B only.
    It has 6GB video memory.

    1050 Ti is available in MXM-A but 1050 is a gaming card.... P3000 is for CAD, After Effects, SolidWorks, etc.
    I hope NVidia makes an MXM-A version P3000 so we can use on M4800.

    p3000 uses a GP104, gtx1060 3gb/gtx1070/gtx1080 use a GP104, gtx1050ti use a GP107 and gtx1060 6gb uses GP106

    it's probably more likely that they will just leave their best maxwell mxm-a for that market segment and if they bother with pascal it will probably just be a quadro version of gp107/1050

    @Eurocom Support This is a really good idea :)

    Eurocom MXM3 Riser Cards will power your desktop with a laptop GPU


    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Euroco...-your-desktop-with-a-laptop-GPU.241042.0.html

    External GPU Thunderbolt docks are *so* 2016. These PCIe x16 adapters will accommodate an MXM 3.x Type-A or Type-B GPU from either Nvidia or AMD for connecting straight onto a standard PC motherboard.

    While more and more manufacturers are scrambling to create eGPU docking solutions based on Thunderbolt 3, Eurocom has been looking the other way to create a hollow PCIe x16 desktop Riser Card for mounting MXM 3.x GPUs normally found on very high-end notebooks like the Eurocom Sky DLX7 or MSI GT72/GT75VR series. The goal is to enable users to easily utilize a laptop graphics card in a desktop or mini PC environment.

    Two versions of the Eurocom Riser Card will be made available designed specifically for either AMD or Nvidia MXM GPUs. These cards will offer either 6-pin or 8-pin power connectors with multiple DisplayPort ports - features that are normally found on off-the-shelf desktop video cards but are otherwise missing on MXM video cards. Users can install up to the MXM GTX 1080 or MXM RX 580 and an included removable fan and heat sink will then sit atop the MXM card once it is mounted in place.

    From a conceptual standpoint, the new PCIe x16 Riser Card introduces a lot of questions. Bandwidth shouldn't be an issue since PCIe x16 offers over three times the performance of Thunderbolt 3 (15.6 GB/s vs. 5 GB/s), but we're eager to see how the vBIOS will adapt to a completely new system that the original MXM GPU was never intended to synchronize with. Will the special fan be louder than a typical desktop graphics card? Will Turbo Boost performance be bottlenecked or even improved in any way?

    The market for such MXM to PCIe adapters is likely very limited especially considering that MXM graphics cards are not currently sold as standalone products. Similar unofficial adapters already exist from Chinese vendors, but we'll soon be testing the Eurocom product to answer all our burning questions.

    Release dates and prices will be made public in the coming weeks. In the meantime, see the official Whitepaper below.

    I don't know what the point of something like this is, when a 1080 MXM card costs over $1,000 US Dollars, and a 1070 MXM card costs over $500. You can get a desktop 1080 Ti for that type of money.
    Bigger problem: What's up with the heatsink arrangement? I did ask this before and didn't get a clear answer, but why is there a "980M" type heatsink arrangement for the 1070, but also a "1080" type heatsink arrangement that is completely different, on both the 1070 and 1080?

    Miners, and cheaper cards like $300usd rx480/rx580s and $500-600 1070s which are not ridiculous prices given how the prices of desktop cards are crazy high now. The mxm versions also tend to be better perf/W which miners like. They're also smaller so more can be stuffed in a given space (tho not with that riser board, that's wider than desktop cards by the looks of it) - but when your hardware sits on shelves in open air rather than in cases, not an issue

    The different heatsinks might be for the MSI 1070 which is almost mxm3.0b like the 980m, and the Clevo 1070/1080 which are quite different (bigger pcb, different core location, added power connector, memory spread over 3 sides, different vrm locations, etc)
