    Well, I mean, to be fair - the GPU inside of desktops and laptops for Pascal is the same, it's just the heatsink/pbc/etc that is different.

    not exactly, as you can see in the link i posted. depending on the laptop model, boost clocks and TDP vary. the only thing nvidia requires an OEM to do when slapping a 1060 into a laptop (or any other pascal card) is that the machine should be capable of holding the base clock, nothing more.

    The 1060 is a solid option over the 980 desktop card.

    Guys, keep in mind that the 1060 requires eDP and will not work with an LVDS panel/motherboard.

    Im completely fine with only using my external monitor/projector.
    I almost never use my laptops display. theres gotta be a workaround. but as i've seen no progress except for someone saying One person did it.

    Hopefully maybe the amd RX470m board might cut it compatibility wise. But i hope its cheap. Because at the prices of a good laptop card(980m) i might as well buy a new laptop.

    So maybe a new thread needs to be put somewhere. rx 470m upgrade mxm b

    Might be slightly out of place, but information is hard to come by. I am interested in upgrading a Dell Precision M6700 with an Optimus configuration. It has LVDS, but the eDP requirement should not matter, as output to the screen is handled by the Intel GPU? Has anyone seen any info about 1060 running in an Optimus configuration?
