    The one I found is MXM 3.0b standard
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clevo-P370EM-EM3-Nvidia-GTX-1060-VGA-Upgrade-Kit-6GB-GDDR5-N17E-G1-MXM-3-0b/112481608108?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    EDIT:
    I have found a big issue with trying to upgrade a Clevo GTX 1070 MXM 3.0 in the Clevo P150.
    While it would fit if you cut away some plastic as you would think from looking at pictures of it, however there is two issues with the Clevo 1070 MXM card, its too wide on the left and it has this really strange extension in the upper right corner which is around 9mm long the right corner is easy to modify if you get rid of your subwoofer which I never use anyway.
    The left extended section to the left however is 7mm which will interfere with one of the motherboard components, refer to the picture of the issues.
    _7220123  [3,1MP - 2;3].jpg _7220122  [3,1MP - 2;3].jpg s-l1600.jpg
    So this really just shows that Clevo P150 cannot take any of the MXM cards that exceeds the standard size to the left anyway, and on the right it cannot exceed too much either, I suppose this is one of the limits to having such a small laptop with so many high end components packed together.

    Dude, this is not a clevo card - this is an MSI card. it's an upgrade kit for an older clevo. Clevo cards don't look like the one pictured.

    if you want to but the MSI 1060, speak to @woodzstack.

    He has better prices or does he pre-flash them?

    They offer a cheaper price if you go direct to him than if you bought off their ebay store. @woodzstack actually prefers you just send him a PM because they don't have to pay the ebay fees. You could ask for it to be preflashed if they're willing to do it.

    FYI they ship from Montreal.

    Looks like this guy is giving the GTX1060 into the P775DM1-G upgrade a try.

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/1060-upgrade-help.807349/

    they're getting the same problem I did which is an incompatible vbios. I have posted a link to the official MSI vbios (which has gsync and non-gsync versions, you'll need to flash the non-gsync version) for it to work properly.

    other than that I can probably confirm it'll work fine.

    EDIT: I'm talking with them now over PM to get it working.

    EDIT: Gents, we can now call the MSI 1060 upgrade for the P775DM1-G 100% confirmed. Since they had the gsync version of the 1060 then you'll need to flash the 1060 gsync vbios.

    You're welcome.

    the 1070 is too wide for some older models.
