    do you mind sending me a link on where to get one? my system uses lvd connector so I really need to know if this gtx1060m is the last upgrade for this laptop. Thanks

    If you system is using LVDS then it will not work unless your system uses optimus and the Intel GPU is active. There is a thread on this forum for resellers of GPUs eurocom is one of them, there are other members on here to that sell them as well. I would link you but I am on my tablet right now using tapa its in hardware area if I remember right.

    I have an GT60-ivy bridge and I am very interested if it really will work because my unit uses lvd connector. Taobao I belive is the most cheapest 1060 I've seen compared to ebay. So if ordering in Taobao reliable? If you heard one of the members here ordered one let me know if they are reliable.

    **************************************
    I saw the post that you linked on it. it says " the backside a big squared capacitator"

    Do you have any picture of the back side of the mxm board so that I can see what is that capacitor? Thanks

    ***************

    I've seen the capacitor at the back... The question is, will this mxm 1060m fit on an msi gt60 with those capacitor (at the back of the mxm board) not hitting anything on the motherboard? Because the layout is a bit different with GT 60. You need to take out the gpu bracket before it properly fits to the board.

    Hi buddyes!

    I recently buyed my new fantastic alienware 13r3 but im really disaponted with the Cpu present on the lappy. After work on my modded Gt70 with gtx 1060 on this last year i check the 3630qm its a really good Cpu for have more than 4 years! My actually config ( 6700hq+1060+16ram+nvme) runs same Fps and nearly same benchmark points than 'oldest' gt70 (3630qm+1060+16ram+raid0 ssd md). So if anyone looks to 'upgrade' or buy a new ones, take care because if go for a new laptop that costs 1300 to 1500 with 1060 for get same power than a 'cheap' upgrade.

    Im really disaponted with intel for that **** upgrade. 4 years old cpu runs 8% slower than a 2016 cpu, insane.....

    Go for GPU + cpu upgrade, i think a 1060 + 3940xm (4940xm) its one of the most powerfull config and runs closer to 7700 (non k) + 1060 desktop and wait for coffe lake 6 core cpu
