What are these TDP numbers? They can't be legit.
They are legit. Listed on the Nvidia site: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/gaming-laptops/20-series/
Confirmed by Prema as well
It’s the price we have to pay due the notebook manufacturers think you all prefer slim and thin Apple design over adequate and good enough cooling. Maybe people open their eyes when all you get is Max-Q graphics design and all is rated below 90/100W TDP.
I have two MSI n16e-gxx-a1 cores sitting in a box somewhere that I meant to send to @Khenglish
I would have loved to have 980 (desktop) in the M18xR2. Especially with the 980m PCB with the mosfets filled in.
Are you gonna try that out?
The z height is different iirc
I put on 7 GHz rated chips from the 980 and they were a few hundred MHz faster. The card would be stable up to around 7.4 GHz at 1.5V, which is less than the 8 GHz expected from an overclocked desktop 980. I then put on 8 GHz rated chips meant for the 1070 and they were actually around 200 MHz slower than the 980's memory.
GDDR5 has termination setting resistors on the board. I don't know how this works or if it matters. Maybe incorrect termination settings are to blame, or the 980m pcb being lower quality than desktop pcbs.
So not quite a success but not a complete failure either?
Must've been fun little project none the less though! Your projects are always exciting to view
Agreed, still waiting on atleast pics of that P157SM GTX 1080 mod
Edit, @TheReciever you wouldn't mind making a post on your M4600? Curious about doing that myself
You mean the P150EM? Only the chassis is from a p157sm iirc
