    It's possible. You can try and ask in HP forum to see if someone can dump their BIOS.

    The VBIOS is in the HP's motherboard instead of the GPU itself, you could theoretically solder a VBIOS chip onto it and flash a VBIOS onto it, as people on taobao do that iirc

    Yesterday I successfully upgraded my Dell Precision 7710 from M4000M to P4000 (refurbished HP card).

    The operation was more or less straight-forward. The HP x-bracket was to tall on the backside (front side for the screws coming in was OK) so I had to exchange it with the one coming from my M4000M. The main circuit board layout was mostly the same so I reused all thermal pads as they were. Some smd components are a little bit lower (0.2-0.3 mm) compared to the M4000M board but I don't think this really matters (future will prove) ;)

    NVIDIA v419.67 driver modding was necessary. All benchmarks (Unigine Heaven/Valley, 3DMark TimeSpy/Firestrike) show performance increase between 20-30% compared to the "old" M4000M while the temperature stays the same. For sure this is caused by the very conservative clock behaviour of the P4000 (max boost for GPU clock was roundabout 1250MHz and 1504 MHZ for the vram).

    Internal and external video ports (laptop display + E-Port DVI) are functional.

    One side note. So far I can see NVIDIA optimus is functional too but in-depth tests will follow once I reassembled the notebook (still waiting for a new palmrest with FIPS reader included coming in this week).
