    Bahz, thanks for coming back to us with more news.
    I will try contacting Asus local support again next week and hopefully they will know more about it by then.
    P.S. Get well soon.

    The upgrade program is definitely real and we released an internal notice to all the regions but shockingly it appears that it hasn't reached everyone at the local regions yet. We're currently trying to reach all our local region service teams and want to make sure they're aware of this upgrade program.

    I also see some people questioning if this may just be a software or firmware upgrade, I can tell you for sure it isn't. I'm not able to share the other details of the process as this goes against our agreement with Nvidia. If this was simply just a software or firmware update then we wouldn't go through the trouble to have people send in their notebook.
    First of all thanks for the updated information. just replied to costumer service to warn me once they get the internal updated on this campaign.
    Just have one question for you, since it's probably faster then costumers support.

    Can we just send the laptops without hard drives ? that may be a big question that must of us may want answers on since some of us may not want to risk losing all the data on or seeing it somehow changed.

    I have just got respond as well.

    They are telling that they will indeed offer this service in EU as well. The price will be around 100€ + shipping(price is not yet decided). They also haven't got the required parts for the retrofit yet (they said they will need to change whole motherboard), they are discussing their availability with the manufacturer.

    They will let me know, when the required parts(motherboard) are available in my region so I can send the laptop in.

    By the way, thank you Bahz for this topic/information about the process.

    100 euro before shipping and going through the trouble of shipping it is not worth the G-SYNC upgrade imo
    Who knows where you'd have to ship this giant box to, as well, might end up being 150 euro total.

    If I had to pay for a simple software upgrade/BIOS upgrade/whatever, i'd be interested. I am not gonna pay 100€ + shipping, which will probably be too high for me, to send in my laptop and wait god knows how many weeks to get it back in, hopefully, the same aesthetic condition.

    I do appreciate the move ASUS, really do. I just can't do it
    My G751JY-T7029H is GOD!!

    Since CPU and GPU are solered to mobo on G751 this retrofit will mean motherboard repecement or if not, technicians will resolder proper hwid resistors
    direcly on GPU card. I see no other option. And since resoldering resistors is way cheaper, what do you think it will be? And I found gsync cookie in the G751 bios,
    I did not scan gpu bios, I wonder if it needs one there

    Well, when I got a BIOS brick, they didn't even bother to fix it, they just swapped the mobo and were done with it. So I assume that's what they're gonna do here.
