    Is it confirmed that there'll be a mobile version of the pascal series that is compatible with the MSI GT60? Just asking

    I dont know yet. But as far as i've searched on the internet, there's a SMX2 not the MXM platform.. We'll it still is early to say that they're not going to use an mxm. Well , we will just have to wait first :)

    The NVIDIA Quadro M5500 might be something to consider. It is MXM and it’s Maxwell. The downfall is that it uses 150 watt and as far as purchasing one goes I can’t find it anywhere on the web. The performance appears to be similar to the desktop GTX 980 for laptops so going from the GXT 980M to it would be a worthwhile upgrade

    Weel, update of my situation.
    I took the vBIOS from Prema mod, for my gtx 970m.
    Flashed (the falsher comes with the downloaded zip) and rebooted.
    Everything fine. The card have been recognized and i installed the nVidia drivers.

    Actually it works perfectly.
    Havent attempted any overclock.

    So, just to say, 3DMark11 GTX770M = P 5252; with GTX970M = P9570

    I am having som problems with my 770m, artifacts been going on for 1 year now, the gaming sucks!!!!
    So because NVIDIA is lazy and not releaseing any new cards in 2016, I am thinking of buying 970m

    I have GT70 2OC, so I can buy 970m on ebay but does it need a heatsink? Or you can use a heatsink from 770m? The cad is quite costly on ebay, around 500 usd....

    The stock 770M heatsink will work with modifications. These mods are described in the first post of this thread.

    Yes, you can.
    I did the same upgrade few days ago.
    Same laptop GT-70 2OC, upgrading from gtx 770m to gtx 970m.
    Same heatsink, just a little work with a dremel.

    I bought mine at R&J Technology, as described in the first page.
    460 dollars.

    Had to flash the Prema modded vbios to let the VGA be recognized correctly by the system.

    So, you can do it.

    "Updated to MSI vBIOS:

    As I stated above at the beginning of the post I updated the graphics card to MSI vBIOS 6GB version. These vBIOS came from a GT72 laptop with a 6GB 970m card. If you get a MSI vBIOS to flash to your 970m or 980m make sure the memory sizes match!"


    MSI GT 70
    Mine is a gtx 670M 3GB GDDR5 and I don't know my Vbios version, Help! I want to install a 980x :D
    i7 3610qm, DDRIII 12GB, SSD 120GB and 1TB 5400 rpm :)

    Hi Guys - I manged to upgrade my MSI GT70 MS-1762 to a GTX 970m card thanks to the awesome support in this thread.

    It has been going okay for a few months now, but lately I have been playing a lot of Overwatch and I get quite big FPS drops unles I run on medium graphics settings. I would have thought I could run this on a higher setting given its not the most demanding of games. Here are the results of my 3D mark

    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/8809567

    My question is - What are the kind of results I should expect with the specs I have, is that score "normal" or am I likely experiencing CPU throttling or something along those lines?

    I used the guide in this thread:

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...-and-play-drivers-gt60-70-ivy-bridges.789799/

    To upgrade to the latest vbios from perma and also allow the nvidia drivers to install natively. My card is a clevo Nvida 970m

    Thanks in advance.
