    Hi, does someone here got an GTX 1070 mxm laying around ?
    I would like to try if a slightly modified P5000 vbios would work with the 1070 :)

    They do everything to make backward compatibility difficult. The format of the board will make it difficult to install in other devices, the location of power components and memory chips will force lot of modifications to the cooling systems, if it will be even possible at all.

    Interesting that the HP quadro RTX cards come with the vbios chip. The pascal series annoyingly do not.

    Why would you stick such a high end card into optimus laptop?
    I suppose it would work if you can get the heatsink to fit, after all the 1070 works both the one from MSI and the one from HP.

    eDP on the P150 and P170 far as I remember has to be modified into working, making the cable yourself and solder everything into the motherboard by hand.
    Tiring process, someone did a tutorial on it.

    The optimus penalty is very minor, especially when targetting around 60 fps.

    Since the laptop uses optimus there is no need for eDP. If you really want eDP, the eDP port does work, but there are no compatible cables. You'd need to rewire cables meant for other systems. There's also no real benefit to getting eDP running unless you also mod the board to use dGPU eDP for high res screen support, which requires moving 10 caps, 3 jumpers, making backlight control work (mxm backlight control only has the brightness level signal, not backlight enable), and crossflashing the bios to a P370EM3 (don't flash the EC section!). And then 4 channel eDP cables are all too short, so you need to splice and extend them.
