    What is the exact name and shape/form factor of the GTX 1070 that is used in the MSI GT73VR, and why is it differently aligned than the GTX 1080 used in the exact same system? Why is the heatsink and VRM's slightly offset, which require a different heatsink? Is this "MXM 3.0" format for the Gt73VR GTX 1080, vs MXM 3.0b for the GTX 1070? Because I have never seen a GTX 1080 using the exact same aligned chip and VRMs' as the GTX 1070. The GTX 1080 also requires an auxiliary power connector. I think this should be made very clear in a concise and easy to follow explanation and showing exactly what is available, mainly due to the cost involved. No one wants to throw $1,000 on a GPU that won't fit their current heatsink and VRMsink....

    P5000 for M6700 is not repeatable even by the author himself, that is a very rare ES card and the author has sold it off and now jumping because there is no other card that can make this miracle (so far). Other ES cards did not work.

    P5000 for M6800 is the similar case. No retailed card will work.

    Apply to P3000 & P4000

    Retailed P5000 can work in Alienware with ES vbios. BSOD if using original vbios but the error message is different from M6x00.
    Clevo has better compatibility compared to precision, it is not surprise if it work. I was told Quadro card does not support G-Sync on Clevo too.

    I think it was a QS card
