    I have 60Hz LVDS and no eDP and ruuning in SG mode. As far as I know but never tried you could use PEG if you are in full UEFI and legacy mode disabled- quote from woodzstack.

    Bear in mind that mine is 1060 not 1070 but who knows you may try.

    There something strange going about my WX 7100 card, the drivers either wont install properly, I use the Dell Pro drivers from AMD website, sometimes the control panel tells me the GPU is disconnected and states I have to reconnect it.
    Tried everything, running in SG mode and laptop boots fine and everything, PEG did not work and it ended up with a blackscreen and beeping, I have A11 unlocked BIOS on my M17x R4 too.

    Should I flash the Rx 480 or Rx 580 BIOS on it and see if it helps?

    I’d also like to know what the best 3D GPU is for the M17x R3. Is it the 580M?
