no idea on this one.
either way, we can all erase gecube off the radar for now.
So far no on has had issues using the MSI bios on a zotac card though right?
IIRC, Gecube and Zotac 1070 MXM-b are the same hardware. Zotac just doesn't sell standalone GPUs.
That's what I figured but only the GeCube samples have these issues afaik
Glad the MSI 1070s are still in good shape otherwise MSI owners would be raging!
Yeah as much as the company stinks their 1060 and 1070 gpus are the best option for upgrades this generation and that @Coolane can push 260W through his and not have it blow up shows its a high quality product too.
another thing is that Gecube uses different VRMs, kinda of plastic feeling(low budget?)
while zotac's VRMs are obviously better quality, they looked like the ones MSI uses and the ones used on desktop cards.
And, maybe they used a different MOSFET as well? i dont know how to tell so i'm just assuming they are using a different material as well.
btw I'm just a regular person who likes to diy so i'm not so sure about all these electronic parts, i only know the basics that most people have.
That and the motherboard's power circuitry. The P870DM-G has a decent one as stated by Khenglish.
Since they aren't sold without the system, I don't think that more than a handful of people are actually using a Zotac 1070 in their Notebooks.
If they would really want to fix their 1070 MXM-B then they would simply fill the blank spots with the missing MOSFETs and use a proper vBIOS instead borrowing MSI/Clevo versions from totally different hardware.
why these mind boggling decisions though? to cut cost? and then have the thing blow in their face?
