    I don't think the problem is out of stock, I feel they just failed or they tend to scam for the money lol. As you can see the website stopped updating in 2016.

    It never made it to market, although there is a MXM to x8 PCIE adapter that does exist now off taobao

    Hope I'm not in the wrong place, although the Acer section of MXM cards seems to be closed.

    Succesfully upgraded my 5920G from a dead 8600M GT 512MB to a HD4650 1GB DDR2 (Hynix) I had around from an dead 6530G. Temps range from 57*C in idle to around 65-70 in gaming (NFS Hot Pursuit 2013 runs pretty fine on a T7500, surprisingly).

    BTW, although it's an Acer OEM'd card, I didn't expect it to work straight out of the box.

    Hi, I'm looking for a cheap laptop with MXM3.0A and upgradable CPU/RAM, I know there is Dell M4x00/75x0 and HP 85x0W/Zbook 15, but except for them, which brand still made MXM3.0A laptop after the sandy bridge era ?
    I got a very cheap HP branded P600 mxm and I might replace the core with a 1050 TI ending up with a P2000 mxm.

    M series precisions do not work with Pascal, I believe the 85x0W work with pascal but they do not support optimus so unless you have a DC panel, it will also not work on the internal panel. I believe people have gotten Pascal to work on the G1/G2 Zbooks, and Pascal works in the Precision 7710/17 G3, so I would assume it works in the 15" versions as well. Aside from those companies, afaik MXM A was only really adopted in AIO machines like iMacs and HP Elitedesks.
