    Sorry for the offtop but here lies the source of the problem: "MXM slot" :p and upgradeability. I believe Clevo will not give up modularity. Small PC's are becoming more and more popular, and they use MXM. Maybe MXM will die but in return they give something else. Changing GPU in laptops is something rare but in PC's is standard so some kind "mxm" should exist i think.

    there aren't infos about volta yet
    Eurocom gtx1070/gtx1080 mxm 3.0b cards are coming
    coffee lake 6-cores cpus should be available in october and new clevos with those for the late of november

    mxm cards will continue to exist because eurocom, clevo, msi, asrock, zotac, amd, tesla are pushing those

    MXM will live on as a slot, so non-soldered GPUs will still be physically upgradeable.

    The MXM 3.0b standard (think, 105x82mm rectangle PCBs) is not in use by Clevo. They have a single design for all their Pascals which is a bigger PCB (which is why no pascal clevos, or MSI 1070s/1080s fit into older laptops designed for rectangular 3.0b cards only, or in SLI in the P870DM or P570WM where the slots are too close together

    Yes.
    Currently, the card works fine in laptops except that it will blackscreen when under heavy load such as 3Dmark and furmark.
    The card works with no problem in those desktop boards.
