Flashing laptop 1070 w/desktop 1070 bios

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Since there is no real difference in the two gpu's, can it be done? Has it been done?
post #2 of 14
It depends on whether or not the GPU is integrated and if it has its own BIOS or if its BIOS is part of the system BIOS. If the ROM is part of the BIOS, it'll be extremely complicated (read impossible), if the card is MXM then it's as straightforward as on desktops from experience.

That having being said, I would never do what you're suggesting. Even if on paper the cards look the same (I didn't verify that), I expect some major differences under the hood.

Yeah the card is soldered onto my Alienware motherboard. The damn power target is limiting and according to my temps I have a lot of room to overclock. Thought I would ask and your answer makes sense. BTW, we are neighbors (Mchenry county here) and nice .45

Never would I recommend flashing a laptop video card with a desktop video card BIOS.

On top of this, the cards are physically different in that the laptop 1070 has 2048 cores, while the desktop "only" has 1920 cores. I can guarantee that the laptop 1070s have some extreme binning to them as well.

it's too bad, cuz I have since quit using my desktop (4790k and 1080) since I only run 1080p. My laptop is a 60hz refresh rate so not like it needs the power, but you know how it goes, always like to tweak smile.gif

Worst case scenario is you brick your laptop gpu.

Thank you (.45 is where it's at wink.gif) and yes we are neighbors! My girlfriend lives just south of you and I've been in your area many times.

Yep, not gonna risk it lol

no cannot, unless you have the card muxed through nvidia optimus

if you have direct edp connection to the monitor, the card will not display on laptop display

desktop vbios lack the code to support edp output



in theory it's completely possible to do with FE bios




maybe once I have another Alienware 15R3 with switchable optimus screen I will test this, it's no worry if brick since I have a hardware flasher

I just OC'd it a tad (+200 core +350 men) and ran Heaven maxed out + 8xAA @1080p. 100% stable. Never passed 60C and scored 2276 at an average of 90.4 FPS. I should just be freakin happy lol
