    A 1060 is the same as a 980DT which is more powerful than the 980M. It is better than having a board die in a few months. There are a few people that have had the standard MXM 1070 that had it fail within a few months due to either too much TDP in the vBIOS, poor design, or poor components.

    If @Eurocom Support hasn't said anything lately, there's probably a reason for it.

    That's why I say go with the MSI 1060 because the design is more robust and you won't have issues later on.

    Eurocom have tested and offer mxm 3.0b 1070 as an upgrade for p170em and p150em which is almost identical (see OP of this thread)

    well since my 980M has been working flawless for 1+ year i only recently began to surf around and see whats happening with updates/bios/mods etc
    thats when i noticed the 1070 works on the P170EM
    (as well as Nvidia's FAIL for not naming them 10xxM *highlight MOBILE/NOTEBOOK card*) -- makes it harder to research the card itself.

    i contacted Eurocom yesterday for information..

    Today I decidied to finally try Prema's MXM 9xxM v2 OC vbios (not G)
    this whole time ive been running on stock :D

    this apparently adds 0.07volt
    up from .9875volt
