    Link?
    Standard, or Clevo-sized?
    Actual RTX 2080 or GTX 2080 with RT removed?
    ;)

    Anyone familiar with Rx 480 MXM or BGA capable of handling 120Hz eDP displays??
    The ASUS ROG STRIX GL702ZC which is the only recent Rx 580 equipped laptop has FreeSync monitor 40 to 60Hz but also has an optional model with 120Hz!!
    I heard even HD 7970M and 8970M are not capable of 120Hz, is this also true?

    I'm using 120hz external monitor. You should plug in external monitor to check . If it is compatibility issue, it will be black screen on any screens.

    A user here did, or at least I think it was it could've been the p375.

    Anyways avoid eurocom cards as they are a black hole of funds out of your wallet.

    Not sure if the newer Dell vbios equipped variant will work.

    Bought a wx 7100 for 250 yesterday, going into my Ranger and popping in the 120hz panel once more.

    Saw the listing on ebay for 280 usd with obo, sent offer of 250 and won it.

    Hopefully everything works out from here. I have to save my money for other things but when I saw the listing on eBay and thought I could potentially swing it for 250 I jumped on it.

    It will not work, and the reason I say this is because Dell themselves are to blame, they did not add support for AMD GPU's on their laptops for 120Hz displays and this is just not Dell it is MSI, Clevo the only laptop that I know of with a 7970M that supports 120Hz is a Samsung gaming laptop and anything newer is the Asus and the Acer ones with Rx 580 and Vega 56 respectively.

    Both me and Rengsey R. H. Jr. have tested the M17x R4 with the WX 7100 and 120Hz display in PEG mode, he tested the original 3D display and I tested off-brand 120Hz display neither works.
    AMD MXM cards support up to 240Hz or more from what I know just fine I tested my 240Hz monitor on my Alienware and it worked fine out the Mini DisplayPort at 1080p no issues.

    The issues lay with the manufacturers not with AMD cards, 7970M wont support 120Hz displays in the Ranger either so your WX 7100 will just give black screen and 8 beeps, you are better off getting a 60Hz display and OC, or somehow modify the firmware on your 120Hz display and make it 60Hz and then manually OC it to 120Hz again inside Windows.

    If it doesn't work then I'll return but iirc it's already been done in the ranger.

    Not sure what 7970m has to do with anything, and also I have the ranger not the R4. I was under the impression that the gpu has already been tested in the ranger.
