    The only other thing is that they are optimus mode only. But very nice for media consumption.

    That’s what I figured! That makes their recommendation a bit easier. If it had MUX we could at least run it at FHD with Fast-Sync and gaming would be solid enough still.

    They’re not touchscreen either correct?

    I thought he was referring to the panels not supporting G-sync. The 9750 version is actually only Hybrid?

    For the OLED panels the Nvidia chip does not have the right brightness control output so it's locked to using the Intel chip for the internal panel.

    Not touchscreen.

    So is it BIOS locked to Hybrid, or actually lacking the MUX switch? I feel like this is something that should just be locked in the bios until there's proper Nvidia support for the OLED, then unlocked with a BIOS update.

    I don't believe the chip has the right output control for it full stop.

    Do you know how many nits the panel is? Also, Do you know if this is the only Clevo model getting the OLED panel? It’s very reasonably priced compared to the other laptops getting the same panel soon like the blade and the XPS 15. I wanted it primarily for media consumption but I was hoping to disable Optimus so I could pass through the GPU to a VM. Thanks :)

    It should be the same panel all round, I dont have the data sheet myself.

    Obtaining a spec sheet is proving to be pretty challenging, but from what I'm told, the brightness/nits should be at least 400 nits.

    MobileTechReview did a review on the Alienware m15 with the OLED panel option here:

    I hope it is the same panel on this Clevo at 416 Nits. I went ahead and ordered a PB51 from PCSpecialist so I guess I'll know myself in 1-2 Weeks :)
