Hi all,

We're extremely glad to announce that the graphics solution of the GT72 is upgradable. This means that if you've bought a GT72 with a GTX 800M series NVIDIA graphics card, you can swap the existing MXM module for a new one. MSI will provide kits through select retailers and authorized service partners in select regions - this list isn't finalized yet, but includes countries such as Taiwan, Korea, USA and France for starters.

For you DIY enthusiasts out there, the kit will be available for direct purchase through e-tailers, should you wish to swap it yourself.

Keep an eye on the official GT72 MXM upgrade landing page, which will be updated with a "Where to Buy" section once everything is finalized: http://event.msi.com/gt72mxm/ - it also features an instruction manual of sorts, on how to perform the upgrade yourself.

Coincidentally, we've also produced a video guide detailing the process and pitfalls, see it below. I warn you though, it's starring yours truly.

Hello all!

So where can this be purchased at today.  And I don't me clevo or flashed cards pretending to be from MSI, I mean actual MSI authorized cards.  I can't find anyone who stocks them legitimately.  One reseller I spoke to says that they have been asking since November and have heard nothing yet.
