    P5000 image is available here: http://www.eurocom.com/ec/multigpu()ec
    P5000 layout is similiar to GTX 1070 so you can use the same GPU heatsink. We have P5000, P4000 and P3000 available in stock.

    oh im aware of that. one would have to, say, get a second heatsink and mod the gpu part to fit the new card ;) have u tested the P870DM, for instance? just want to know if it generally works in terms of electrical / firmware compatibility.

    and charge a ridiculous upmark for it too.....I can understand a 5-10% upmark over cost maybe even 25% for aftermarket support but a 50% upmark? Beyond unreasonable and just greedy practice at that point to charge $2500 for a $1200 card.

    If you supply a Dell service tag to the parts department for a 7720 equipped with a P5000 they will sell you a brand new P5000 w/ 1 year warranty for $1600 Still a far cry from $2500 w/ 90 day warranty. This outrageous pricing and abandonment of standards is what drove people out of this game.

    That's ballpark for eurocom, 25-50% premium over a "normal" price for pretty much every upgrade or replacement part.

    To be fair though, I don't see other resellers putting the same amount of work into their website if they even have a dedicated upgrade section. If they maintain stock on hand (I've never ordered from them) the management of inventory and avoiding overinvestment would be hard from a business perspective... the alternative to having stock on hand (such as when I go through my Aus reseller for obscure bits) is a 4 to 6 weeks delivery timeframe.

    Worst from them I saw was the upgraded eDP cable for P870 for $161, on taobao is like $40 ex shipping, a part used in every QHD/4K P870, and cables like that ordered in bulk wholesale lots are very very cheap per unit.

    I'm not going to defend anyone, just stating a fact - the Eurocom version is GDDR5X. Money are money in the end and I don't have a money tree either.
