    There is a PWM2 and PWM2A, so I agree that there are 4 phases.

    The 1070 die is a little chipped, not sure if it even worked before. Thinking if it's worth soldering it or no.

    But still, anyone with the right vBIOS for this card?

    You Solder 1060 Die to 1070 PCB right ?

    Look my Card there some Hard Scratches but is Good .

    Great to see a P751DM User maybe we can share Experiences :)

    MayBe you have to Check if G-Sync or No-Gsync PCB .

    Good Success !

    Nice to see someone more!

    Actually I cannot know if my chip is G-Sync or not since I cannot see it's dev ID, I am not sure which vbios to flash in it. Planning to power up it maybe with blank vBIOS in this HP motherboard so that I can see the dev ID if it will pass to windows just like the desktop cards do.

    Your PCB is the green one, and it has some different SMD placings, and one MOSFET present, in the black version that MOSFET is replaced by a 0ohm resistor. Not sure vBIOS is compatible between these 2, desktop cards on the other hand, work fine with cross flashing (assuming TDP to be similar and the power setup).
    Your card still works with such big chips on the corners?

    Yes, soldering the 1070 die on the 1060 card, basically everything is now ready for the chip swap. And yes, the heatsink will be also modded to fit with this card type.

    Small chips to the top are usually ok, the main issue is if it causes a fracture into the active layer at the bottom of the chip.

    Yes.

    My 1060 has a really bad one in the lower right corner, as result, chip is dead, no activity on the vBIOS chip. Power management though works fine, sequence 0.8 -> 0.69V vCore, 1.5 -> 1.35V on memory.

    I hope the 1070 die is 'alive'.

    If i right if G-Sync or not is not the DIE thats counts even the PCB .

    Because vbios there are often MSI ones they are good . . . 86.04.31.00.0C is a no G-Sync vBi0s im using on my card .

    Your PCB maybe from a Zotac ZBoox 1060N .


    You are using Ds@nke bi0s to use a CoffeeLake CPU or to have unlocked bi0s for a Skylake CPU ?


    To stay me clear im self not that Hardware Modder like you . . . a Project you are doing are some Numbers above my knowledge but hope can bring content thats help You :)

    Yes, it seems to be the Zotac card, and there are both 1060 and 1070 on the techpowerup. Planning to try maybe this one:
    https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/212278/212278

    I'm on the Ds@nke BIOS, which worked fine with a 8086k and the 780m card, except that vBIOS was not very compatible.

    What to do if these laptops are not quite finished, and some parts cost still a fortune (vga MXM).

    +125mv sounds like a built in over volt which seems a bit excessive to start with?
