Surface book 1 with nvidia maxwell gpu base no go ?

Running Bliss 11.13 stable using integrated intel hd520 all seems pretty much fine except loss of touch screen on boot every now and then and the fact that games are running lowest specs by default and cannot be improved much.

I have tried forcing nouveau (boot with nvidia) flags but all I get is an out of sync garbled display. If I try to force nvidia boot flags accompanied with a resolution, ie 1920x1080 or 3000x2000 it boots fine and is no longer out if sync but just seems to have reverted to the integrated intel graphics and not the nvidia/nouveau.

Can Android x86 utilise the original surface book with the nvidia maxwell 940m gpu at all ?
