    The tm series needed a bios update to work with the cards iirc so you might need some bios work done.

    Indeed there is a Bios update required...but Dsanke already did that...i´m using his version without RTX card support actually but I tested before and worked fine beside don´t have 2000 series card.

    So Bios is not a problem, my doubt is related to the MXM slot Etc.

    The slot is standard.

    Hi guys,
    I just bought a used Clevo P870 dm2. The specs are as follows:
    i7 9700
    GTX 1070
    16gb

    The seller says the laptop is flashed with a custom BIOS modified by Dsanke. What does it mean by this? Sorry I am an Alienware guy, so im a noob in Clevo.
    Also is it possible for me to upgrade to GTX 1080 or the RTX later?

    Here are some pictures of it.

    See the dsanke thread on here, it's for the 9th gen cpu support which was never official. 1080 is possible yes but cards are a lot of money for the gain you will see.

    Thanks for your respond. Can I ask what the differences between the dm2 and the tm-g?
    From what I research I can upgrade the cpu heatsink to tm-g heatsink for better temps. But it requires some modification to chassis.

    Chipset and heatsink design. Some other electrical differences, there was an entire thread about that too. Mostly I'd want the heatsink, the DM3 vapor chamber is more plug and play but worse for the CPU.

    Yup, it requires a little cutting, since the TM1 heatsink has an additional radiator stack for the VRM's.

    I saw brother Johnksss had put his GTX1080 for sale. To leverage full potential though, I'd suggest pairing it with a vapor chamber.
