[Solved] I just want to ask before I purchase questions
@diogo_souza, Any GPU should do the trick. I recommend upgrading from 4GB Ram though. a GTX 1650 or GTX 1650 SUPER should get you gaming at a comfortable 60 FPS. There is a slight issue because a bottleneck calculator says that a GTX 1650 and Ryzen 5 2500U will produce 11% bottleneck, slightly above the recommended 10%. Don't forget your PSU. Here are links to buy them (not affiliate)

GTX 1650 SUPER: https://www.amazon.com/PNY-GeForce-Single-Graphics-VCG16504SSFPPB/dp/B081SF87PL/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1Z6AKVXT4XTF0&dchild=1&keywords=gtx+1650+super+4gb&qid=1592732591&sprefix=GTX+1650+SUPER+4%2Caps%2C326&sr=8-4
Recommended PSU(Any other Bronze PSU should work atleast 150W): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071HHSY2M/?coliid=I3SERSSVIFU0AW&colid=12QKQSPDIMVRY&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
I have a Lenovo T430, which I use for my own personal work (software development). I am in the process of buying a new monitor and realized that my computer will only support a max resolution of 2560 x 1600 (internal graphics intel HD 4000). The monitor I would like to buy supports a 4K resolution of 3440 x 1440. I don't really need a more powerful PC or laptop, just more screen real-estate.
I am therefore thinking of extending the graphics capabilities of my T430 with an external GPU. I wont necessarily be playing games on it, but then again I may decide to play the odd game here and there. Note that the laptop sits on a lenovo dock at present and will not be used as a mobile device.
I would just like some input on what works and how well. Ideally I don't want to be fiddling about with stuff just to get the computer working every time I use it. Also will standby work with this solution, as I frequently just leave my laptop running and let it go into standby until the next time I use it.
Currently running Windows 10 professional.
Thanks in advance to any replies.
Product: Pavilion 15.6
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-Bit)
Hi! So I want to know if I could use a eGPU with my HP Pavilion 15.6. Here are the specs of my laptop:
10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 Processor at 1.3GHz
4GB NVIDIA GeForce MX250 Graphics
Memory 16 GB
1 TB HDD
Can my laptop run r43sg? Since it has M.2 Nvme slot, or is it whitelisted and can't be detected in bios? I have 1tb ssd drive sata instead of m.2. I don't have to worry about my m.2 slot anymore
Information about my motherboard is
Micro Star International and the model is MS-16J5
good pm hey guys im new to this forum and i would like to ask if anyone here can confirm that a z400 lenovo touch can work with an external gpu using the mpcie?
thank you for your reply
Hello, I have a laptop with those specs:
Windown 10 Pro 64 bit
Looking to buy eGPU to run games such as Fallout 4, Tropico 6, Metro Exodus, and Anno 1800.
Recommendations and insight highly appreciated!
Processor : Intel i7 7700hq
4 Cores. 8 threads
2.80ghz base / 3.80ghz max.
GTX 1060 6Gb onboard.
250gb m.2 ssd
1tb Samsung qvo ssd.
Monitor:BenQ ex2780q 1440p 144hz Freesync2.
Hi guys. Just wondering on a opinion if an Egpu is feasible on this setup?
Available to use the GDC beast M.2 ngff in place of the wifi/Bluetooth adapter.
Goal is the achieve 1440p. High to Max detail and 60+ fps on milsim type FPS. Post Scriptum, Hell Let Loose, Squad, Sandstorm and so on. So for with the on-board GTX 1060 it manages 1080p at med low detail just hitting 60fps.
For the EGPU I'm leaning towards a AMD 5700xt, just so its also available for a PC build layer on. Would this be overkill?
Lastly will it work? I've searched for Asus laptops but their numbers are limited. Plan is keeping the 1060 Nvidia for the laptop display, using the AMD egpu for the external monitor. Being that is Freesync etc.
Hello, eGPU friends. I bought the HP Elitbook 820 G1 for business from my friend. I saw it had an M2 port in it. is this system compatible with egpu? or do we need to use the egpu 1.35 program?
I just wanted to check and make sure that it is possible to use an eGPU like the ADT-R43 series or the EXP GDC BEAST 9.0b in this computer? It has both an m2 (M-key) and an m2 (A/E Key) slot, I saw in another post someone was successful with a similar computer (Prodesk 600 G2 Mini) using the A/E connector. I was wondering if the M-key connectors (x4 PCIe) would work with the port in the computer, or if the M-key port is only usable for storage? If it does in fact work, would it be about TB3 (Think Razer Core X) performance?
Unfortunately I had already ordered an EXP GDC Beast 9.0b off eBay before I found the post suggesting the R43 instead (because of bandwidth concerns). I am looking at an R43SL with 50cm long cable, does the length have an impact on performance and should I steer clear of that one?
Any help or recommendations is appreciated.
Like some of you here, I am using an older laptop that I want to get hooked with an eGPU. I am currently engaged in Adobe programs for design and animation so adding an external would offer better performance in terms graphics quality.
I've been doing research on DIY eGPU set up using express card but none of them were specific to my unit. So, your insights and suggestions are welcome.
I'll list my unit information and below are components I am planning to purchase. Feel free to add/delete components and offer suggestions.
