    Lenovo was actually the first OEM to start implementing it, and then Dell followed suite. Im not sure if Linkpads have it as well, but they started the implementation with the consumer models.
    BUT with Lenovo's there was still hope because of an UEFI bug.

    I really would like to know weather if a GTX1060m flavor can work in an MSI GT60 ivy bridge version. I know that the ivy bridge uses an lvd connector, so it must be a non gsync vbios version.

    Let me know. Thanks

    I've seen lots of AW model that can be upgraded to 1060 mxm boards and only few for MSI gaming laptops. Question is, is there any member here who have tried sticking a GTX 1060m on an MSI GT60-ivy or haswell cpu? Because I've read based on the link that there's a "big squared capacitator at the back" that pushes towards the motherboard if you screw it tightly for AW laptops.

    What about the GT60 version?
