I was wondering if I was able to upgrade my existing Alienware 18 with Dual M290X's to Dual 980M's? I'm not sure if there is a different socket or something else which may stop the upgrade?

Thanks
Fraser

AFAIK the alienware laptops still use MXM sockets for their GPUs.

If they do, then you should be able to. Show a photo of your laptops videocards plugged in and removed and I can give more confidence on this answer...

(that said, its not really a justifiable upgrade for the expense)

Hi Jerdle,

I have taken your advice and have chosen not to do the upgrade after reconsidering the expense it would be!
I appreciate your help!

Thanks again
Fraser
