Hello.

I've succesfully connected my RX 560 4GB to my Lenovo T430 without any hassle.
Simply installed the drivers, and the GPU is visible in the Display adapters section in Device manager without any errors.

The GPU is definitely not faulty: it works when I connect an external display, but my goal is to use it on my laptop's internal display.
The EXP GDC is definitely not faulty: NVIDIA 1063 and 1066 are working with both internal and external displays (need to enable Intel HD4000 though, otherwise it's a no-go, contrary to other build guides).

But I can't get to use the GPU with internal display. The games are using the iGPU, and even if I disable the iGPU, it doesn't help.

So, is there a way to use AMD GPU's with EXP GDC on internal display?

T430 + EXP GDC 8.5 + 1060 => Success
T430 + EXP GDC 8.5 + RX 560 => Semi-success

I assume we are talking about Windows 10? I had to uninstall the internal graphics card (for me its called Basic Display Adapter). I can extend the desktop to both internal and external and can can e.g. FurMark on both display using my eGPU (AMD Vega 56)

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017), 3,1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3, Radeon Pro 555 2048 MB, Intel HD Graphics 630 1536 MB + 8GB Asus Radeon RX Vega 56 ROG Strix OC + Sonnet Breakaway Box 550

Yeah, Win10.
But you're using two displays, ext. and int., and I want to use only the internal one.

For those who wondering how to accelerate you apps or games with internal display on windows 10 1803 and later.

You have to manualy choose which app should use or not the external graphic card.
To do that you must go to Settings->System->Display and go to "Advanced graphics settings", in that page just select the .exe of your game or app and them select "High performance". But keep in mind of the performance loss using internal display.
