M15x with Clevo GTX 980m results

Recommended Posts

This appears to be limited to around 80w.   It's running very cool at about 78c for GPU Hot Spot.  I had read on the old site that the GTX 980m was a no go due to heat.  I am guessing that the issue was an unlocked card?  Even with the TDP limit, it's a significantly faster than the M4000M.

The hardware ID is different from the Dell card so the inf mod required a bit more work.

Modified inf file for driver version 511.65: nvdmig.inf

13D8 = Dell GTX 970m

13D7 = Dell GTX 980m

1617 = Clevo GTX 980m

Firestrike graphics score is about 21% higher than my Quadro M4000M

I'm going to be performing this same upgrade in a week. Hopefully it works out. I will try to limit mine to 90W instead of ~80W though if I can.

Hey! Pascal cards are no go.  Due to the MB/bios ,ec bios is monitoring signal feedback at the lvds connection/communication.  If you dont have an lvds capable card in it , it wont turn on.

Im trying to get a solution for that, if its even possible.

ah that sucks, i remember Pascal onwards was dependant on eDP only, no more lvds. maybe theres some kind of signal adapter? aliexpress always offers crazy stuff like that 😄

Y its sucks,  the lack of optimus/intel hd is the other problem,  if You take it apart,  you can see on the MB there is the lvds connector and next to it there is the place where the edp connector should be , but its missing. Even on the MB, the connector is labeled but its missing.

I have found an article on the old NBR forum that says,  the are some early m15x's with soldered edp connector , but alienware never maded cable for it .

Some pics shows there is edp option in bios , and someone was able the get it post with a 1060 but being an lvds screen no image was shown in the internal display.

thats promising though. one could feasibly either solder the eDP connector onto the board, or if you have one of those older models, you could swap out the internal screen with an eDP model. they include the cable for it 🙂

I will dig up the thread,  and paste it here , but its not just an edp connector soldering,  bounch of caps and resistors needed 2 :/, and thats require a technician who has those tiny soldering tools and etc.

You might source eDP parts from DELL M6600. I think it has the same connector and the cable might be of use. I say might, because I think that it has color board which would make the cable shorter and the output might be custom (i.e. not eDP display standard). You have to double check that with multimeter and the schematics in hand. Good luck!
