@luca_foresta, Depending on the game the performance difference can be significant. Sometimes though eGPU just doesn’t play nice but it allowed me to play all of my games at better quality and higher quality, there were games that I never would have been able to run without it. As for the GPU the difference between the RX 550 and 480/580 is HUGE for twice the price you get 2-3 times the performance. Even if you’re gonna be bottlenecked by the CPU I still would go with the 580 of I were you.

Hello guys,

I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M910Q slim desktop and I'm interested in adapt an eGPU on it.

My computer board has one M.2 A key socket available and one M.2 NVME socket used by disk.

I have some questions regarding the components I should buy to execute this project.

  1. Shall I use M.2 A with or shall I use M.2 NVME socket?
  2. What adapter is better for M.2 A key socket? The ADT R53SG adapter or EXP GDC Beast?

I can't find much information about eGPU over M.2 A key socket. Is it reliable? Do any of you tried it? What is the feedback.

My motherboard has a second space for M.2 NVME but it has no socket attached. It is possible to attach a socket on it? May it be soldered?

Thank you.

2@flavio_costa, M.2 NVMe and ADT-Link for sure. the A\E key are reliable but I would only recommend if you have 6th gen CPU or higher. If you can find the socket then you're probably out of luck.

 

@kenonline12_androidphonegamereview, sorry I'm not familiar with the EXP GDC series. I always recommend the ADT-Link Series because it has better quality compared to the EXP series without much of a price difference.

@kian_moiny, I'll stick to the original choice of the RX 580 then, and use the PCE164P-N03 mPCIe egpu enclosure (the only choice for the thinkpad x240 eventually) probably with some Corsair PSU unit that I can find second-hand. I'll post a build when I have it for other who are stuck with this laptop.

Thanks a lot for all the info!

@muhamed_hany, If I were you I would probably get an RX 470 used from ebay, an ADT-Link R53S and any sort of power supply that has at least one 8-pin power connector. Uninstall current drivers attach the GPU the power supply and the adapter. Set the power supply on always on now before booting the laptop the dGPU must be disabled. After logging in if the GPU is detected then you’re all set to go if not it probably means the laptop has a bios whitelist problem, option 1 is bios-mods.com, option 2 nando4’s eGPU software.

Hi, 

I have an asus N552VX (all the specs at the end) and I want to make an egpu station for it.

I have a free M2 m key port normally used for an ssd and I want to use it for the egpu. 

I saw here that have a lot of possibility and different docks. 

something like that can be the best for me 

https://it.aliexpress.com/item/32806527691.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.4d252e0e7sAiJR

but is too expancive for me.. so I think I will move to something like that

https://it.aliexpress.com/item/33047523917.html?aff_platform=portals-tool&sk=_d8YcTSC&aff_trace_key=4f8036719b144b44a27dcc3ed52b8d58-1587913437993-06077-_d8YcTSC&terminal_id=ebfc40d0e9b84312aa5a2ca0c564e991&tmLog=new_Detail&aff_request_id=4f8036719b144b44a27dcc3ed52b8d58-1587913437993-06077-_d8YcTSC

So about that I want to make some questions:

1) Somethimes I need to move my pc so is possible to have something with a connector to move my pc faster? 

2) I saw that in a lot of cases people have to make some change in the bios. What I have to do, after the hardware part?

3) I saw that a lot of people have problem with the driver when have for example an dgpu NVIDIA and an egpu NVIDIA. Can I have less problem if I take a gpu AMD? 

4) last question LoL I need to buy everything: m2 adapter, gpu, power supply.. Can you give me some help to find a good configuration? 

 

Sorry for the looooong post 😉 

Thanks a lot
