Hardware pictures

N/A due to lack of posts


Installation steps

Pretty much plug and play but had to Power Options > PCI Express > Link State Power Management > On battery: Off + Plugged in: Off

My battery and motherboard had to be changed and after that the eGPU was not detected. The fix for this was to enable Thunderbolt 3 in the BIOS.


Unigine Heaven score of 2453 with the eGPU (139 without the eGPU)




I bought it to run Deep Learning on my ultrabook and (obviously) for gaming
