    Funnily enough, the change log mentions a fix for missing graphics in the FX tab for the m15 or m17 LOL

    Sad…

    Good evening folks! I've got an AGA connected to my 51m R1 with a 3080 ti in it. I don't see any way to control the card from the AWCC and resizable BAR is disabled. Anyone have experience with this setup and have suggestions? BIOS is 1.5.3 if I remember correctly...

    Thanks!

    Pretty sure it requires 11th gen cpu..being R1 I'm assuming you are in a 9th generation cpu right?

    1. Get the AGA or wait for a newer version to appear?
    2. So got an area 51m in 2019..... so 2 year warranty.....1yr Dell manufacture, 1 year store warranty
    Now Dell stated it would be upgradeable with CPU/GPU.
    I got top spec model and no upgrades available.....
    So is that a Store Warranty issue for replacement to Dell Area 51m R2????

    The reason Dell only offered the 2080 upgrade kit a couple of weeks before they took it down again was because they needed the cards themselves for in-house repairs (RMA).

    And they are able to grab more spare parts from the Trade-in campaign

    Same. I reported it to them, so we will see how long it takes to get a fix pushed.

    lowkey absolute laziness on my part, but what was ever determined to be the best/compatible memory upgrade for this laptop? Could we get higher speeds than the 2400?

    Is it just me or did Alienware remove the Advanced View from the CPU on AWCC? I have an i9 9900K and BIOS 1.5 Do I now have to use Intel XTU to undervolt etc? What is this **** honestly?
