    Xenforo needs emoticon reactions, a "like" for that post is ambiguous.

    In this case; :vomit:

    I had a nagging feeling in the back of my mind that board space saving would see bga soldered gpu/hbm to thin'n'bendys and not as mxm due to its lower motherboard area requirement. Until Vega's innately horrible power consumption was revealed anyway, that must be downclocked and undervolted pretty heavily.

    Vega has a pretty good perf/watt, but AMD had to set a high clocks and voltages to be able to fight Pascals. In power save mode Vega loses a few percent of its performance but power consumption drops by 20-30%.

    Thanks for proving me wrong I was actually looking for a picture of its guts, shame though the Vega 56 is a good performer once you tweak it a little in the control panel love mine on the desktop but I was shocked to see them putting it in a laptop, RIP once that thing starts to spit some heat on that soldering work probably last 2 years at best of heavy use.

    hi lads I own a GT7S-6QE it comes with a GTX 980M 4GB g-sync.... it just shorted....
    two main questions for you pros:
    1/ is it possible to identify the faulty component on the GTX980M ( i got a hot air soldering station) and how?
    2: I plan to buy a 1060 from msi (MS-1W0U1) with g-sync, will i be able to keep g-sync functionnality with a MSI g-sync card?

    Many many thanks in advance lads

    if MSI releases an 1170 that has the same layout as their 1070 then that would be a no brainer to buy.

    You should be able to find it if you have a multimeter. You should probably make your own thread.

    Does anyone have Rx 480 or Rx 580 (Notebook) vBIOS? I have the WX 7100, detected in BIOS and drivers installed without issue on my M17x R4 but the GPU wont initiate in Windows for some stupid reasons, I think its a vBIOS issue, already tried two variants of the WX 7100 vBIOS, got both of them if anyone wants.
    015.050.000.000.000951 and 015.050.000.001.019413

    Is there perhaps a way to get the WX 7100 to be recognised as a Rx 480 by editing .inf file in the driver?

    Contacting just about anyone now LOL, I managed to acquire one more WX 7100 vBIOS also different one from the ones I have, this is the strangest issue I ever seen in my life, Windows installs drivers and detects GPU but the GPU is not connected according to AMD control panel yet its still recognised by the system as being connected LOL
