    Is there any possible mod to Driver or vbios for proper use on my system?
    Current modded driver isn't works for DX12 and OpenGL well yet.

    Notebookcheck says it has 1792 shaders (compared to 2048 on the P5000).

    Ah, yes, of course. Seeing your post I hoped there's a cheaper alternative (if only somewhat underclocked), but then I saw that there's a cut in shaders as well which is less cool.

    @SeeDLesS , Did the machine post in your 60Hz R4 ? the BIOS shows the proper info. Also the FS you made was that done on an External Display ?

    Yes the 120Hz upgrade is necessary from what I 've read, Alongside dropping the MXM 3.0b reference PCBs Nvidia (they capitalized, levraged on the full GP chips making the transition to the M to the DT class GPUs) also dropped the LVDS support, so need an eDP capable machine. Here read this if you didn't (MXM3.0b). But the Display pipleline with the Ivy platform PCH (but the three people who upgraded to Maxwell had the eDP panels) does allow due to the internal conversion I guess, but with specific modding & particular settings maybe (Prema's take on the Ivy with Clevo). But Alas !! Svl7 is MIA but there's another knowledgeable person who is good with the sBIOS mods for Ivy-Alienwares (Another link, M17x R4, M18x R2) but he got Pheonix DM machine as of now.

    Edit - One Two Three Alienware 17 Ranger upgraded to Pascal, all 120Hz. Fourth @woodzstack could you please clarify this a bit
    Edit 2 - Perhaps @t456 could shed some light on this FDI and Pascal with Haswell, Does it have any chance like this ? Since the Haswell Mobile CPUs also support Intel FDI technology & has the MUX, LVDS & eDP ports on MoBo to switch like the old R4, I could find Intel ARK showing this only in the case of CPUs, cannot find for the HM77 or HM87 chipsets specs page, Thanks.

    Looks like it works fine on 60hz with use of optimus, no need to hack bios, already does edp->lvds conversion without problem. Old alienwares are simply amazing.
