    The memory on my WX 7100 is Samsung, unsure what die type it is, all I know is Samsung and Micron are the best memory options on Radeon cards, if you got Hynix you screwed up.

    As for temperatures the WX 7100 was about if not cooler than the 1060 simply because of the fact the WX 7100 is a standard 3.0 layout unlike the 1060 where the die actually sits lower most of the time you wont have a perfect die contact with older heatsinks.

    The m5100 was significantly better with hynix memory as the Samsung were dogs on that card. Good to see that it isn't universal though

    "Quadro Turing"

    How does that sound to your P7xxDM?

    Tuning Quadro for JB sounds cool.

    yummy! (as long as we are talking standard form factor mxm 3.0b here!) i knew that waiting on the gpu upgrade and going with other parts first would pay out ;) any more info on that? pm if not ready for public yet hehe

    btw received and installed my 970 pro 1 tb and built my very own little 512 gb usb thumb drive with a transcend m.2 2242 ssd and a trekstor ssd-prime enclosure (smallest package on the market atm), works very nicely! seeing about 440/410 MB/s R/W over USB-A :)

    the 970 pro install was a bit finicky, getting that EKWB heatsink attached was a pain with those metal clips, but at least its a super tight fit now. another super tight fit was getting the drive into the m.2 slot below the gpu fan and put the back cover back over it, the heatsink is actually sitting flush with the cover *lol* but it fit, thats all that mattes! ;)

    initial testing went well, heatsink keeps the 970 pro at around 70C even under heavy loads, so no throttling, ever. (starts at 80C and above)

    now to find some time to install W10 enterprise LTSB/C...

    Hi, I would like to know if it's possible to swap (upgrade) the gpu core of an mxm card, for exemple running a "full unlock" GK104 core on a GTX675MX mxm card (4Gb and 256bits) ? Could I need to replace the vbios ?
    Is the same could work for GM204 and GP104 ?

    I'm just waiting flux, solder ball and stencil from china to upgrade my K4000M (4Gb/256bits with dell vbios) to GK104 core (GTX 770), then my GTX970M (6Gb/192bits but two empty ram with msi vbios) to GTX980"m" (GTX980 desktiop) + 8Gb and if everything working as expected I will upgrade my laptop to pascal gpu.

    Thanks

    @Khenglish has done this I believe. If you have the equipment to do so its entirely possible, but I think it only works for certain architectures.

    Yup he put 980 core on 980M mxm board, same GM104 chip same everything except SM count.

    He also added the vrm components 'missing' on the already-marginal 980M so the board didn't kaboom from the extra power
