    * magically appears out of thin interweb space*

    Yes, they have them, that means I have them if you have questions too.

    Yup no SLI for you ! Sorry.

    I'm placing an order for 80 RX Vega's for what I think is a miner going nuts.

    Would a 1080 also work using this method as from this image the MSI 1080 Type 2 looks to be the same size

    By stone he means GPU core, the mounting is different.

    10 Series offers great performance over 900 Series but compatibility is just garbage!

    There's a few things that changed, dropped LVDS support - which is what kills it for your AW18, no nvidia reference design so manufacturers went designing their own cards specifically for their own laptops, as gecube found out the hard way you can't just slap a 1070 core on past reference 3.0b design and have it not blow up without proper design. And rx480 mxm was too busy being snapped up by miners (who don't care about compatibility beyond "can data be shuffled back and forth across a PCIe x1" link) to be widely available for notebook GPU upgrades, at $300us ea they could have been an awesome cost-positive (!!) 4K capable upgrade to p870dm 980m sli but it just never got past step 1

    The no LVDS Support and the custom design for each card is terrible. Should be all reference design if at all possible to maximize capability with previous laptops.... These things are not cheap.
