    Full GTX 980 Desktop working in Alienware M18X R2.

    Card mfg : MSI
    Bios : Clevo GTX 980 : Gives 8 BEEP in PEG but Working in SG Mode
    Bios: Stock MSI : Card is undetected and gives 8 BEEP in PEG

    Currently in SG mode , but can run discrete when needed.

    Next step to install 2nd GTX 980 in Slave drive and see what will happen. lol

    That's weird, it shouldn't give 8 beeps in PEG unless it is a G-SYNC card?

    @Raidriar will find this interesting

    No clue, I’ve never examined the card myself so I couldn’t say for sure. But it’s cool that it works even if it is only in SG mode.


    I am supplying @Khenglish with N16e-gxx-a1 cores for him to see if we can get full desktop 980 standard MXM cards

    Is there a non g-sync version of the GTX 980?

    I can't seem to find the bios of non g sync.

    If it is green pcb same shape as msi 1070 then it is not gsync version since it should be from msi gt80s laptop which is non gsync

    How many cores? Maybe 2 extra for me LOL

    I'm not sure. Only way to confirm would be in a MSI laptop. If it's not g-sync it should work in PEG.

    When I use the clevo bios in the GT80s , it display only externally. With MSI bios , it display normal on internal screen.

    Hello Guys....
    I need your Expert Help to see if its possible to do some upgrade on my mobile workstation....
    I have an MSI-WT72-6QL with an nVidia Quadro M4000M, and I would like to upgrade this GPU to a Quadro P5000 Mobile (because of the 16Gb Memory).
    Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to do this?
    I know that I could upgrade to a M5000M, but because of my work, I would really love to have this P5000 one.... (it won't be cheap, and it won't be easy to buy, but I would give it a try if anyone could guide me if its possible and what would I need to do....)

    Thanks
