    No NvLink fingers there either. Guess nobody could figure out how to get that on mobile.

    Or potentially nVidia didn't allow it.

    Or i was just too much for current systems, who knows.

    Although I agree with no one figuring out the connector part since it's quite different and bigger too.

    At this point why even make it in mxm if you can't upgrade it from last gen cards.

    Looks like Clevo is the only one allowing that. The 150W TGP though...

    Wouldn't say allowing it. Prema needed to modify in support for RTX series in current models such as P870.

    They weren't just plug n play. Clevo probably kept the same design because it costs lots of $$$ to make a custom design.

    They also have some vBIOS issue where DM and KM models (6-core and quad core models) had different vBIOS and they weren't interchangeable unless you flashed the vBIOS.

    Seems like every company is trying to not allow upgrades at this point.

    This was the picture. It’s an MSI RTX 2070 board. I assume the 2080 will have the missing core phase populated. Looks like there’s space on the board for an external power connector as well.

    The MXM standard is dead, nVidia unofficially killed it, its only mutated versions of the card left from the likes of Clevo and MSI, imao, good luck upgrading them though looks like the 1070 was the last MXM 3.0b card, unless the 2060 on MXM 3.0b comes out, I doubt it.
    I am betting on the Dell standard more despite what people say, it has more promise than a standard being controlled by nVidia unless AMD comes up with something open standard for mobile another wishful thinking.

    By that logic MXM is not standard either because there literally 8 or 9 variants of it
