    I honestly didnt feel that the 51m was a well thought out product, but I may be overly critical of Alienware anymore.

    I have looked on some Youtube videos with Dell's engineers talking about cooling design (design in it's whole) for their models. The developement and engineering for each model takes 2 years. Refersh also come into this. I'm sure he knew exactly what would come from the developement, design and engineering teams:) He probably had AMD in his head at that time and totally forgot it:vbthumbsup: It's hard, when your mind is in another place.

    I would be happy if dell released a AGA R2 at CES with PCIE 4, beefed up power supply and room for the new cards if they were able to remain backwards compatibility over the current laptop lineup of PCIE 3 AGA ports.

    Guys, do I hear right? The series 3000 will not work with the AGA? No firmware update at all?

    Thanks for answering, my friend!

    So it appears that none of the series 3000 is compatible with the AGA... I had a 3070 on the way, but I will sell it to my cousin

    Any info for the AMD series 6000, guys? Any chance they would be compatible with the AGA?

    6000 series AMD card is still not out. Hence much easier answer on this than for the Nvidia 3000 cards launched a month ago:D He is very selective on what he want to reply on.

    Edit.
    None from the tech department want to reply on the undervolt mess questions flooded the web the last 10 months...

    While it's not unusual for the occasional "new card" to take a while to get certified, the length of time this is taking is not speaking very highly of Dell or Nvidia. The solution is very popular and the 3xxx series equally so. I could see the 3090 being out of range but if the 3080 is working in other egpu solutions it's making those solutions look better than AW's engineers. Papusan is probably smiling with a "told you so" but in some places Dell managed to keep the "it just works" methods going for years and the Amp "was" one of those. /sigh
    Guess we wait and see.
