    I honestly don't know, but even if I would, that's stuff you just don't talk about.

    Ah well, that's too bad. I suppose my willingness to talk about stuff like that is why companies will forever dislike me xD

    The price for the g-sync license is already part of the g-sync GPU itself (not the shell). They cost extra versus an identical non-g part for that reason when bought stand-alone in bulk. It's not like this could be misused to make non-g GPUs work with g-sync.
    So asking a vendor to pay for g-sync via the purchase of new GPUs and then not allowing them to use the feature would be the criminal part.

    Porting legit code from a paid for license for a user that paid for g-sync via GPU purchase should be self-evident. ODMs just lack the effort to support EOL systems including Plug'n'Play support for non-g parts.

    EDIT:
    Technically speaking we can essentially make 'any' GPU Plug'n'Play for all Clevo models as long as the hardware is or can be modified to be compatible.

    so long as a 1080 works with little to no modification then i am all good!

    @Mr. Fox how much juice does 2 180w GTX 980s use at stock?

    I'm actually contemplating on whether to sell my unit or settle for a 200W 1080. The 200W 1080 could require a new heatsink though.

    By the way, extra bad news for some of you guys, apparently the Clevo version of GTX1060 is also with extra 8pin power supply. I
