Calling all laptop GTX 1060 3GB owners- does your 1060 have the full 1280 Cuda Cores?

I had a comment on one of my YouTube videos today where I had reviewed an MSI laptop. The individual pointed out that he had the same laptop with the same 3GB GTX 1060. He noted that when looking at software to show the particulars of his GPU, it stated he had the full 1280 Cuda Cores that normally come with a 6GB GTX 1060, rather than the cut down 1152.

Is this something that is standard on the laptop versions of the GTX 1060 or is this because MSI has used the full GPU and just disabled 3GB of vram? As you can probably tell where I am going with this- I wonder if it would be possible to flash the internal 1060 to the full 6GB of vram. Obviously if this didn't work, it isn't as simple as buying a new 1060 to replace the one you just bricked, so I don't have the intestinal fortitude to try this out. Regardless, I am still curious. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! smile.gif

Laptop 1060s are all the full core count 1060 and either 3gb or 6gb vram is physically there. Desktop 1060 3GB is physically disabled on the die.
