Hi I have a M18x R2 and want to improve my graphics card. What are the cards that are compatible with this alienware? Now I see that came the new Radeon RX480. As the new GPU step out the version "M" will I be able to put in the Alienware?
Sorry if my English is not so good. I am using a translator to write.
There is not a laptop RX480 released. The laptop GPU validated on the 2012 M18x-R2 were =
8KPKP Nvidia GeForce GTX680M N13E-GTX
C0XGT Nvidia GeForce GTX675M NV13E-GS1
5H5NC Nvidia GeForce GTX660M NV13E-GE
8DG8P AMD Radeon HD7970M Wimbledon XT
The RX 480m (or previously, R9 480m) is a mobile variant of the RX 460.
Also, it's very likely it won't come in a MXM form factor and it hasn't even been released yet), so no, you won't be able to upgrade to it..
