Considering what happened with Pascal drivers, and that I can't enable hotplug in the bios which I'm not going to modify even if possible, I would like to know whether to go with a 750 Ti or an AMD equivalent, since I heard that NVidia has better performance through mini PCIe compared to AMD. I plan on getting a 550W Corsair VS PSU, so I don't think the power consumption will be a problem to me

Hello Guys.

I am running a ClevoP170em with a Radeon 7970m, i7-3610qm  and 16gb Ram.
Could anyone familiar on the subject tell me if a e-gpu setup is possible and would make sense and what to expect in terms of speed?
As far as my research learned me, I would have to take out the wlan adapter and connect a e-gpu via this port(forgot the name)
Is that correct?
I would be thankful for any help from someone who knows more about hardware and e-gpu setups than me.

 Hi there. I've been searching for a video card that fits well my needs (60 FPS) e doesn't give me so much trouble setting it up. Considering the concerns and driver issues for the GTX 1050 that are widely discussed on this forum, does someone know something about using a RX 560 docked in an EXP GDC 8.4D adapter? 

My hardware:

- 6Gb RAM, i5 560M, 250w PSU (exclusively reserved for the GPU), 128 Gb Crucial SSD...

Thank you in advance.

Hi Everyone,

I am quite new to the eGpu scene so please excuse me for my basic questions. I have a laptop with a decent graphics card in it 970m nvidia and I purchased a 8.4 beast egpu. I am planning on using a 1080 gtx graphics card with it. 

-Is it possible to use both the power of 970m and 1080 gtx together when playing games or can I only choose one ?

-Since I have no experience doing this, can you recommend a setup by setup guide to egpu laptop software/hardware setup ? 

Some of my friends think, eventhough there is a significant performance increase between 970m to 1080gtx its not enough to completely disable one to use the other.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

B.

Hi, and thanks in advance for your time.
I'm a total noob here so please bare with me, I'll try to be as brief as possible!

My laptop :

  • Lenovo Thinkpad T430s (2355HKU).
  • BIOS Version: G7ETA6WW (2.66 ).
  • CPU: Core i7-3520M (dual-core, 2.9Ghz).
  • Memory: 2x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz.
  • Internal graphics : Intel HD4000.
  • OSes : Win 7 and Debian (on separated SSD disks).
  • External Monitor : IIyama Prolite B2783QSU (27" - 2560x1440px - HDMI / DVI / VGA / YUV ).

 

Graphic card considered is nvidia gtx1050 ti as I have a low budget.

I understand that thunderbolt is the best/fastest option, but if I understand correctly, I can only achieve this with a Thunderbolt enclosure like the Akitio Thnuderbolts or Magma ExpressBox 1T which are quite pricey, correct?

The other option is a PCI-E adapters, correct?
I found on this very useful ressource the BPlus eGPU adapters, but I wouldn't know which one is best for my laptop + an nvidia gtx1050 ti + my monitor.

So here are my questions :

  • What do I need exactly for PCI-E solution (adapters, cables, power supply, case) ? Especially between the PE4C V4.1, V3.0 and V2.1 adapters.

  • Will performances be much lower that with a thunderbolt solution ?
  • Optional question : Will it work with linux? I am not really planning to play on Linux, but Debian is my main OS, I am using it to work so if it's also working with Linux it would a +

Hello I was wondering if this will work:

My Specs:

Macbook pro 13inch early 2015

Running both mac/windows 10 64bit BOOTCAMP

I want to buy the exp gdc v8 with my gtx 1060 and power supply.

I was wondering instead of using pci can I just use my belkin hdmi to thunderbolt 2 cable directly to my port on my computer with the hdmi port on the exp gdc v8. Don't know, need to be sure before I purchase.

 

Any help would be great thanks Smile

Hello,
I've found in my laptops mobo a "strange" mPCIe slot that I want to connect my eGPU to it. I haven't found any documentaries on it and it is NOT THE ONE THAT MY WIFI CARD TAKES!
Anyway here is a picture of it (also note that it is in the very bottom right of the mobo) in the attachments.
Hope to hear from you soon, maybe a story will be enough.

The GT1030 only consumes 30W. A Node Lite or Thunder3 with upgraded power supply is sufficient to power it.

Hello Turkai,

  1.  Please keep this topic active and avoid to open multiples topics for the same kind of question. Otherwise it begin to be messy.
  2.  The "do it yourself" eGPU is not something you could assume 100% sure working on your laptop. It is not something that manufacturer support when you buy your laptop, so you need to try yourself if someone did not tried before you!
  3.  Your G580 could support eGPU using the mini pci-express adapter, since the G580 own a single mini pci-express connector, used to connect your WIFI card. So if you plan to use an eGPU, you will not be able to use your WIFI card because the slot will be occupied by the eGPU.
  4.  The adapter you should buy to try the eGPU with your laptop is like this one: EXP GDC MPCI-E
  5.  You need to buy also a graphic adapter and a power supply to feed current to the eGPU adapter. The GTX1030 is powered by this power supply through the adapter. Look this video to get an overview about the whole setup!
  6. Now the REAL issue is to know if your laptop will accept and configure with the eGPU, this depend mainly by how manufacturer configured the mini pci-e connection to allow that. The only way to know is to try, usually it work, if not there are a lot of trick to help. But anyway do not get the idea it will work at 100%. None can say that before have tried, tried all the trick and then stated it will not.
  7. Issues are generally that the laptop do not boot with the eGPU adapter and/or the eGPU adapter is not recognized under windows, and/or badly recognized.
  8. You will need maybe also an external screen if your laptop do not support the eGPU on it's own screen. Usually Nvidia use the Optimus technology to allow an external eGPU to display on the internal screen.
  9. Remember that Pascal gpu series have some drivers issues that made them a bit difficult to setup, the GTX1050 have this issue, dunno if it aplly to the GTX1030. However if you want to be sure with the compatibility, i advice you a GTX950/960!

Hey guys, as the title says, in China for a few days and looking into getting the Xiaomi laptops. Apparently the 13 inch one has a spare m.2 sata ssd slot. I was thinking of buying a spare back panel for the machine, and cut out the appropriate area which would allow easy access to the m.2 slot. But I am not sure if this laptop is capable of egpu.

https://techtablets.com/2016/09/xiaomi-mi-notebook-air-13-3-internals-ssd-slots-spare-m-2-2242-slot/

From another forum, the slots in the 13.3 air are: Xiaomi Mi Air 13.3 – 1x M.2 NVME PCI-E 3.0 x4 2280, 1x M.2 SATAIII 2280

Can anyone please help?

So, I've been reading about eGPU for few weeks now and just ordered my Beast V8 adapter with hdmi to ExpressCard connector.

My laptop is a Thinkpad T430 from back in the day, that I've been upgrading every now and then.

Thinkpad T430
Intel I5 3210m
16Gb Ram
Samsung Evo 850 pro SSD 512mb
Stock crappy display.

I've been trying to play some stuff lately on my Thinkpad, nothing hardcore, just for fun. Like CS:Go or LoL but framerates and details are not that good with the iGPU intel HD4000.
So after reading some, I can tell that the compatibility in my case is not that bad, and Expresscard eGPU is almost plug and play, that's sweet.

I've got a Generic 600watts PSU laying around that I will use for this project and I will eventually, enclose the adapter + gpu + psu in something I will work myself out. Not looking to buy any kind of enclosure.

About the GPU, I do have laying around also:

AMD Radeon Saphire HD6970 3gb
AMD Radeon Saphire RX480 Nitro OC 8gb

But I read that AMD graphics cards are not compatible (yet?) with the internal display, that I plan to use. I'm not looking forward to get an external monitor hooked up. Yes, I do also realize that using the internal display I will loose some of the GPU power. (will this happen also with external display?).

 

So, some questions and doubts I still have:
a) What kind of gpu should I get? As I've been reading also that Nvidia 10 series is not 100% compatible due to some drivers reasons (or I need to install old drivers). This also points into the debate about best GPU bangs for bucks for my rig and looking forward to play mostly those games, maybe test something else. I don't want to get something like a GTX 750ti and after the gpu power loss get no that results I would be expecting. Or go all the way and burn cash in some GPU I will end up not using as much as expected. GTX 1060? 3gb? 6gb? 1070? 970? Advices will be welcome!

b) Saw that I have to connect to the Best v8 adapter, the 24 pins connector from the PSU, and the 4 pins connector also, besides the hdmi to expresscard cable, but there's another 6 or 8 pins connector on the side of the adapter is that an input or output? Maybe to connect the gpu? That's a quick one!

c) about that eGPU power loss using it with ExpressCard adapter, how much do you guys think it will affect me?

 

I'm really liking this new project and any answers or opinions will be appreciated! 

Thanks, Matías.

Before using GT1030 with G580 Laptop i recommend you to check all specification and all compatible factors for this device. You can check these all specification and all compatible factors either in Lenovo G580 Manual or lenovo official website.

I have read the user's guide but I could not find the answer.I've seen someone who has done EGPU on the G580 before and  thought it would be possible.But I have not found any videos about the GT1030.So I did not dare to do eGPU. This piece is also expensive in Turkey.

Hello everyone,

I made quiete research but i coudnt find an answer. I have a cheap laptop (Reeder W14i Slim Book) and it has a m2 slot but i dont find any information about whether the m2 slot is sata III or NVMe PCIe.(There is a Trenscend 128 Gb Sata III 6Gb/s SSD in that slot right now and its working.) Could I run eGPU if my m2 slot supports only sata III ?

My second question; my  m2 port is the one with a B+M key. Can I plug a m key m2 adapter like the ones on the Beast eGpu links ? 

Thank you for your help,

best regards.

thanks

So, my laptop has a

  • 7th gen core i3
  • Integrated Graphics 620
  • 6gb ram
  • no express card or thunderbolt

so to setup an egpu i plan to order a

Is that all i need? am i missing anything? what likely issues can i face?

Moreso if im using mPCIe does it mean my egpu would always be connected to my pc or is there is a way i can make it plug 'n' play ?

The whole egpu parts cost $264 and the laptop costs $350(just bought it). would it have been better for me to get a laptop with a dedicated gpu ? or this setup would be more efficient for its price

If you want to use a Pascal card, first check if your laptop supports hotplugging as I suppose you will use minipci-e/ngff for this model.

Regarding performance, does Akitio Node with latest firmware perform the same as the Mantiz Venus? I want the best TB3 performance for the GPU, I don't care about other extra inputs. Should I go Akitio?

There has been underperformance noted on the Mantiz Venus that Mantiz_John alludes may be fixed by a future firmware. Regardless, TB3 eGPU enclosures without additional ports get the best eGPU performance and, in the case of the Node or Breakaway Box, cost a fair bit less too: https://egpu.io/external-gpu-buyers-guide-2017/#tb3-enclosures

there is a better solution IMO.

you could use a MXM msi gtx1060 gpu. it is successfully tested in your model

The most import questions regarding this card:

Would I be able to bypass/disable the HD4000/Enduro Mode ? 
At the moment, with the 7970m, it´s not possible.
Cause the Laptop is built in a fashion that all the Ports are on the HD4000 and the Radeon7070 is intermediary and only acts when more Power is needed.
When I purchased the laptop I decided for the Radeon7970m cause It said Eyefinity is possible and wanted a Triple Monitor Setup. Early I learned its not possible, but I got along with 2xFHD.
Now that I am switched to a 27" 2560x1440 I have all kind of Issues and need to either get a Desktop, a egpu or maybe your solution if that ain't too expensive.

(Its extremely annoying and idiotic to have a GPU that theoretically could do everything I want, like [email protected] per Displayport, Triple Monitor on Desktop and so on, but practically just not and afaik and researched, there just is no workaround.)

Thanks in advance

ps.: looked the card up, seems to be very rare? Also the one price tag i found says 875 canadian dollar.
For that money, I just could get a realtivley good Desktop.
