    The m5100 is around 850m speeds when overclocked last I knew.

    Hi !

    I'm trying to understand mxm types and dimensions but i've found out conflicting sources about this.

    For instance:

    here--->https://twitter.com/eurocomtech/status/940967041544196096
    Quadro P4000 is reported as mxm 3.1 with dimensions of 82 mm x 105 mm
    but in the OP is reported this: "mxm 3.1 is 94mm x 111mm like Aetina Gtx1070"

    so different dimensions

    or

    here--->https://twitter.com/EurocomTech/status/1172195767890694149
    RTX 2060, 2070, 2080 are all reported as mxm 3.1 with dimensions of 100 mm x 124 mm
    but in the OP is reported this: "mxm 3.0 is 100mm x 124mm like Clevo Gtx1060"

    so different mxm version (3.1 vs 3.0)

    Is anybody here who can explain real difference between MXM 3.0 and MXM 3.1 ?
    What are real physical dimensions of 3.0 vs 3.1 ?
    When a certain gpu qualifies as type-a ? When type-b ?

    Hope in your help!

    Vendors/manufactures are not so clear in that. So I used a way to have a good separation. It's an arbitrary question

    Hi
    In my understanding MXM 3.0 and MXM 3.1 part is referring to the electric specs only as connector and pins/signals. True MXM 3 have only two size variants: A which is 82x70 and B which is 82x105. So latest variations from Clevo, MSI and others are electrically compatible with MXM 3.1 but their form factors/shape/dimensions are off course different.

    Did anyone ever tried to upgrade a 1060 mxm 3.0 with a GP104 gpu on it? I mean there is 1070 version of same board, maybe 2080 gpu will work in this assembly with gddr5 memory and 2070 vbios?
    In desktop cards I saw upgrades from 1060 to 1070 gpu.

    That sounds about how much thought gecube put into their original 3.0b 1070... and they blew up all over the place because the vrm was insufficient

    Never had one of these cards yet, usually I am always switching to better vrms/mosfets.

    I'm just wondering if it's worth trying a gp104 into in terms of compatibility.

    Clevo 1080 and 1070 mxm's are quite different (not just the vram). Same thing with these aka Gecube ones, even different size of cards.

    GTX 1070 Standard MXM-B on HP EliteBook 8770W DC2, works like a charm:
