    Now I have installed a MSI GTX 1070. works fine. I started Unigine Superposition in 1080p Extreme and coreclock jumps from 950 to 1500 and back. Anyone an idea?

    It's all about power envelope with pascal, you basically have to tune around that now.

    You should read on how to do that. Sorry don't have the time for that at the moment.

    Hey everyone! I'm very new here and I'm really wanting to upgrade my AW18's GPU to this 1070. After reading this thread, probably for the 4th time, Lol, I am understanding it a bit more. However, I'm wanting to know has anyone succeeded, as in "everything works" with this upgrade? Which one, if any of them where everything works, has less or no physical modifying to anything? I'm particularly interested in the standard MXM form factor 1070 upgrade.
    My Alienware is the 2015 edition of the AW18: 4940MX Processor, 32GB Ram, Nvidia GPU, BIOS version A14 06/25/2018. Btw, has this thread been moved or just the conversations been moved to other threads? It really would be disappointing to see this thread abandoned. Thanks everyone and I'm really impressed of the effort all I have seen on this thread helping and meshing off of each other's input. Thanks again! Salute!

    The OP was attempting to make 1070 sli work but no dice as you need SG mode to have everything operate as needed. As a result he moved on to other projects.

    There is omission of details but that is more or less a tl;Dr.
