    Yes
    Everything is alright. Performs well.
    The card was just made for me by the Eurocom. Just for me.;) :notworthy:

    Could you post your vBios? The last working one given by eurocom?

    I wrote a letter to the "Svet" msi guru man. I asked to help me. Problem with low Watts. The laptop can not pick up over 180W. Games are all normal. The tests did not. Combined test ate a lot.
    (pl. 3DMark11 combined test .... disaster) Fps is greatly reduced. Great movement. Throttling. Display light decreases, fades. Rough.

    Kingdom Come Deliverance game ..... max gpu load (97%) 82-84 degrees.
    I'll figure out something. There's a plan, but I have little time. Later.

    I'm an amateur but I do not give up.
    Is not over yet.

    Ok thanks.
    So basically you flashed a MSI 1070GTX vbios on your EUROCOM (Gecube?) 1070? Big leap of faith as the MSI TDP is 150W and the EUROCOM's is only 115W.

    Problem......
    bios version: E1763IMS.11D .... this is good (MSI)

    EC Firmware: 1763EG61 ver 7.14 ...... this is not good (Medion Erazer)
    Bad EC Firmware, limited to 180W. There is nothing new.

    Medion Erazer is dead, I did not find anything.
    MSI EC does not go up. We have not managed so far.

    i ordered a gtx 1060 last week if i had seen this thread i could have gotten the eurocom gtx 1070 xD . Whats the latest info on this upgrade? so if i understood correctly gtx 1070 works perfectly with games but with tests it does not work ? correct me if i am wrong. Thanks for your time and effort!!

    As the Eurocom 1070 is only 115W TDP, it's only about 10% better than stock 1060 GTX from MSI. If you flash the vbios to unlock the TDP, you should be on par with that one.
    And with the 180W PSU of the GT60/70, you are quickly limited. Honestly, you picked the right card, 1060s are best bang for the buck atm for GT60/70s.

    You're right. Since Medion was bought by Lenovo, they dumped MSI.
    They now use Clevo chassis but only with soldered BGA CPU/GPU.
    The website is still on and you can still download bioses and EC firmware though.
