Pascal GPUs with Dell Precision M6600


Recommended Posts

Big discovery of experimenting. Got the chance to try my quadro p4000 from my m6700 to my m6600 cause I was inspecting my p4000 to insure that my thermal pad and paste is making contact while vram Half covered. it booted from bios to os with no issues and the best part is nvidia Optimus doesn’t switch off from powering down like the P106M does. As of now I couldn’t the gpu because it’s missing the option to use the nvidia processor instead of the intel gpu in the nvidia control cause of something to do with editing the hardware I’d and and drivers not sign now after editing. like the third try I did with P106M but with more updated driver with same issues. Not sure I need to edit something else then hardware I’d to enable the option to switch. I’ll continue testing tomorrow and find ways get gpu working to do some benchmarks.

Update...  I was unable to get the option to use Nvidia gpu instead intel gpu on newer driver. has optimus been discontinued on newer drivers? same on older drivers the Nvidia  control panel does not start after installation instead run it manually by going to the folder. it has the option and select it to the gpu but no change after apply still use the intel gpu. i try using windows 7 to see any different on the gpu switch option control panel is there but still wont use the Nvidia gpu, after installation of Nvidia the aero is disable u cant reenable it. even tho the drivers are signed. 😓 i did one final test is disabling optimus bios and enable windows 10 startup sound to see if it boot with no issues without optimus and it successfully boot to windows 10 as it played startup sound. dell never create edp cable for 50pin edp screen (well for interposter for 10bit ips lvds screen ).
