    Probably and did it in dedicated mode. Nor.ally you are recommended to install it in hybrid mode.

    Oh really? Why should you install windows on hybrid mode? Won't it recognize the onboard intel graphics?

    Just allows for a smoother driver installation and means it will just behave when you switch.

    So you recommend installing in hybrid mode, then switching to dedicated in the bios ?

    @XMG

    When I installed windows 10 in discrete mode, nvidia has a problem locating the device and says that the installer is not compatible with the system. It hangs on the checking compatibility.

    Which leads me to deduct that the mshybrid mode needs to be active so that the system sees the rtx 2070. true ?

    Yes if you want to run it in dedicated once installed in hybrid mode it's ready to go.

    I don't suppose anyone here has been able to roughly compare fan noise on this unit to the GE75 Raider (2070 or 2080)?

    Gentech does a rough noise reading but it can be a hard thing to compare over the internet.

    The fans on the PB70EF-G are well within reason to my ears, at full speed they are audible within the room but no high pitch or odd sounds present.

    By comparison, I had an Aorus 15 X9 that was way, way louder. Near jet engine loud, if I can exaggerate. It might have pushed more air, but at a very unacceptable noise level. The Clevo is much more tame, and thanks to the chassis still provides good airflow.

    I have yet to use the SD card but I did notice is is 'hidden' and recessed from the front center of the laptop. I've never seen one here, but I don't mind it mostly because I don't use it regularly.

    So the card sits flush and does not get damaged.
