  1. Nah. Microsoft discontinued support for NVMe on Windows 7. I guess Windows 10 is not selling. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4343220/this-hotfix-is-no-longer-available However, NVMe driver hotfix can still be found online; https://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/417318-nvme-driver.html I didn't test it yet really, but after installing, Windows 7 found the driver and the drive.
  2. Hi, I just got the Gigabyte m.2 nvme 512gb drive. I installed it on my MB Asus Z170-A with latest BIOS. I can see the drive in BIOS but not in an existing Windows 7 x64 installation on my old SATA SSD drive. Windows Device manager is reporting a missing driver for PCI device, and Unknown device. I think those are the missing NVME driver. Is there actually a working nvme driver for Windows 7? Or should I do something in BIOS settings? Thanks, Cheers

    Maximum HDMI output and higher resolutions/refresh

    I know how refresh rate works, I just don't know about how it would affect my everyday work, as I never tried anything below 60Hz for CAD purposes. It sure doesn't sound very good. Regarding the brightness flickering possibility, which backlight technologies are there? I thought there is only the LED and the older bulbs thing. Most are LED nowdays, right? I don't seem to be able find the mentioned chart in NVIDIA Control Panel. It only says that my external monitor (DELL 2407WPFHC) is a DVI-PC display (in Display>Change resolution), and in "Set PhysX..." it actually states that my external display is connected to 650M, and laptop display to HD4000. GO figure. I do have NVIDIA set up as the preferred graphic processor for everything. Also the Intel HD4000 settings don't even list the external display anywhere, just the laptop display...

    Maximum HDMI output and higher resolutions/refresh

    Yeah. That's the first place I checked. I also contacted the customer service, but they are out of this earth slow and unhelpful. I've had nothing but terrible experience with them before. I don't count on any help from Asus customer service. If they really cared, they would list the info in specs, or at least in the manual, which I read from start to end. So it's positive that I won't be able to get more than 30Hz on 3440x1440? Would it at least work on 30Hz? What does 30Hz on LCD actually mean? I'm not a gamer, but I do use an external display alot for CAD. Would it strain my eyes? Some random people said it has HDMI 1.4 not 1.4a. Another weird thing I heard is that the HDMI could be attached to integrated Intel HD4000, so this could also throttle it down. I'm not sure about that. If the HDMI is 1.4, can I at least count on 2560x1440 @ 60Hz?
  5. I'm using my Asus i7 N76VZ (NVIDIA GT-650M GPU) laptop with a 1920*1200 external monitor via HDMI output (HDMI out cable + HDMI>DVI adapter), and now with all the new big high resolution IPS displays available, I've decided to upgrade my display. With 34" 21:9 displays in mind. However, to my absolute horror, I have just learned that HDMI output is limited when it comes to high resolutions and framerates. I wasn't able to find out exactly anything about any actual numbers. Only bits and pieces. Nothing official. I wasn't even able to find out which HDMI version my laptop has. So what is the maximum resolution of HDMI output on my N76VZ with NVIDIA GT-650M GPU? At what refresh rates? Which version of HDMI it is on N76VZ? (1.3/1.4?) If the HDMI cannot go higher than 1920*1200 at 60Hz, is there any other way except for HDMI to get the higher resolution out of my laptop? Say at least 2560x1440, if not 4K.
