    Hmm. What about a different benchmark? Does everything in 3DMark do that, or just one of them? I've had the most issues with Time Spy and VR Mark. Fire Strike and Sky Diver are generally more stable, especially Sky Diver (the most stable benchmark in the suite).

    If all of the 3DMark benchmarks do it, maybe instead try 3DMark 11 and Unigine Heaven to see if you get errors. I suspect it is 3DMark, since it's known to be buggy. 3DMark 11 is a lot better product, and more stable.

    Hey,

    Are you able to run Fire Strike on this with Windows 10? I'm trying on mine before I crack the case and install the 1070. Keeps giving me "workload produced no results" and a lovely score of zero.

    Call me old school if you want to, but I still find this to be the most aesthetically pleasing laptop ever made in the history of laptops. I don't want another one, but man... still love how it looks. I'd love to have one with P870TM1 specs... 9900K and RTX 2080 installed in a replica of an M18xR2 chassis would be too sweet. But, I would want it to run like a P870, not be crippled like an Area 51m. That would ruin it.

    Me also like the look and the feel of this old lady, the feeling of the pretty metallic surface and the ++size screen.

    Yes, works fine. I've used 580m SLI, 680m SLI, 780m SLI, and 1060 all fine with Windows 10.

    Agreed. Still my favorite design and I plan to keep this one for as long as I can. I haven't owned or seen any other laptop in this class with the same build quality and aesthetics even today. CPU is what's really holding it back in today's time. It can run 1070 and if we get a MXM of the RTX series probably that too.

    Did it give you any issues? I might have a bad download even though I've tried several times. I can't even get the dang thing to run right under Windows 7.

    No issues at all. What card are you running again?

    980Ms in SLI. Same CPU as yours only at stock speeds.

    Do games and everything else work? Just not 3DM?

    Yes,

    I haven't tried anything super taxing lately but I'm trying Jedi Fallen Order and it seems to be working fine.
