    I'm asking around about GPU upgrade prices, trying to get an idea about 1070/1080 price.. If anyone has any idea, do let me know.. If the 1070 is >700 USD, I might as well spend a bit more and build a desktop lol..

    Build a desktop. It won't be cheaper than 980M was.

    actually, @Prema said that Clevo nailed down their current MXM form factors for future MXM based GPU gens, so from now on u should be good form-factor wise ;)

    Yeah looks like that... Still looking into the desktop option, just wondering if I'll have enough space and where I'm going to keep it lol..

    Eh if you could get a good price for your current model just sell it and get a good desktop or a P750DM2.

    Seems more likely MXM won't be around by the end of 2017 with Volta on the horizon. If I were a betting man, I'd bet that NVIDIA is moving forward and not backward.

    nVidia killed MXM. MSI and Clevo are doing their own designs, under their own cash. This is why old machines cannot be upgraded easily.

    nVidia does not give a bloody crap about consumers, we already know this. But at least this way, AMD won't just come in and shove a 150W RX M480 at us for $500 and say "hey, check power ;)".

    Shoot so the 120hz pannel is not GSYNC?

    What is the refresh rate of the 4k 60 only I am sure?

    How about if we buy the 1080 SLI can we get both fans to run when not using SLI? That would help a ton since the cooling is now setup in a grid. Hell I just have to buy one and find out I guess.

    A 150W RX480M might come close to a 1070 and I would pay for that lol :D.. I doubt the mobile 1070 is costing anything <700 USD anyways..
