2018 14" Thinkpad T480s + [email protected] (EXP GDC 8.4) + Win10 [MrBoudinPomme]
Hi, i want to show you what setup i have now. Sorry for mistakes, english isn't my main language. Here we go :
2018 Thinkpad t480s
I5 8250u @1,6Ghz – Turbo 3,4Ghz
14-inch FHD touch display
8 Go DDR4 2400Mhz (soldered – single channel)
iGPU intel UHD 620 / no dGPU
Windows 10 family 64bits
Exp Gdc v8 NGFF cable + gtx750ti OC 2GB +External 22-inch display 1080p + old PSU 580W
Shut down laptop, open it up and remove wifi card
Plug all cables for exp gdc + plug ngff cable to the laptop + external screen dvi to graphic card
Close laptop : do not tighten the screws too hard.
Launch laptop, install drivers and play !
The setup work like a charm : plug and play experience. When not gaming i just unplug the cable without removing nvidia drivers. When gaming just have to open and plug it in + ethernet cable. Next step is the enclosure and test it in games.
I wanted to try that way first because of the price (40€ with delivery at aliexpress/ already had other stuff). Maybe i'll upgrade to a TB3 case but for the moment I only have a gtx750ti so it'll wait.
PUBG running at 48 fps average, dropping at 40 fps but never under.
Playing heroes of the storm too at high ultra 60fps vsync.
Why do you use you WiFis M.2 NVMe instead of the WWANs M.2 NVMe?
You should be able to plugin there. The WWANs M.2 should have two PCIe 3.0 lanes according to Lenovo.
The WWANs M.2 NVMe should be the one next to your WiFi card with the black cover.
I haven't seen any information it would work so I took the wifi M.2.
Do you think it would improve performance ?
