    Yeah I can do the motherboard mods in around an hour probably. The eDP cable though takes several hours.

    DVI-I dual link is capable of WUXGA @120Hz, worth trying, given that the adapter is only $6.
    Talking about the dGPU output mod, very interesting, but given the amount of work I will give it a miss. Not to mention that standard mxm form GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 are rare and overpriced. One might be better off getting a new laptop with i7 6820hk/7820hk, better nvme SSD and the capability for 64GB RAM.

    P150em is basically just a tool for me and I have no emotion/preference attached to it, I only use it as a testbed for mxm cards (also to flash the vBIOS for those mxm cards which have weird eeprom (such as FX3800m) )

    I just hope my Dell M6700 can run VR after upgarde to Quadro P5000m. really addicted to it's Premier Color display.....

    I got my 1060 from China, cheaper than other cards in the Western market :D

    I'm just trying to remember if the output was truly dual link regardless of what the connector looked like. I think it might not have been.

    Even if it is truly dual link, it might still not be able to support VR.
    But there's some good news, M6700 and P5000m works great! So I can show off the 10-bit screen and VR at the same time lolz

    It's even more sour when the hardware is still good enough for it however just something stupid like the DP port/HDMI port specs is stopping it from working :/
