Gents,

A few days ago NVIDIA announced the availability of its new 10 series for mobile laptops. As a result, I am contemplating upgrading my GTX 660M to a unit from the 10 series. Any first thoughts how such a proposal may pan out?

Aside from the power requirements, it begs the question if the physical real estate would be sufficient.

How proprietary is the laptop gpu you currently have? I suspect they may be pretty vendor-specific.

And in any event, laptop manufacturers probably want you to buy a new laptop rather than upgrading the one you have, so I suspect they won't make it easy.

The gaming laptop is MSI's GE70 and you are quite correct about the proprietary nature of the GPU (ie MSI GTX 660M).
