Hi, i tryed to find a build for the X270. But didn't find anything. My model is the 20HN0015GE.

I am not sure which egpu board/Adapter to choose. i could replace the W-Lan card (as i use Cable-Lan), but i am not sure, is this mPCIe or M2?

i am completely new to this all.

i found 3 versions i think?

Sorry, i am rly lost at this all right now. 

If there is a Topic about the X270 which i missed a link to there would be nice.

 

THX in advance.

Hi guys quick question, I have laptop MSI GT72VR-6RE, it came with GTX 1070M but the VGA dead already, I want to buy replacement card but it is to expensive, so I am planning to buy ADT-LINK R43SG that connect to NVME port inside laptop. I have only 1 question, anyone here using MSI GT72VR series and can use ADT to connect external VGA?

 

Thanks

I just came across this eGPU trend after playing New World at sub-20 FPS on my laptop and I have a few questions.

1. How much performance drop do I get with a mPCIe dock/adapter?
2. I've seen that the mini PCIe connector provides up to 8Gbps bandwidth; in this case, is it worth using a Thunderbolt 3 case on a USB-C 3.1 port, seeing that it can provide up to 5Gbps?
3. I've checked the FAQ and it says that connecting an external display has lower performance drop than using the internal display. This is confusing to me, what is the internal display and what is external? In my setup, I have a 24" monitor connected to the HDMI port on my laptop, which is used by the iGPU. To minimize the performance drops, should I connect the monitor directly to the eGPU?
4. My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-53GP and it has a M.2 slot used by a SSD. Is the 32Gbps going to make a huge difference for a GPU like a GTX 1050Ti or a GTX 1660, or should I use the mini PCIe/USB 3?

I have a dell vostro 14 3468 with i3 7130u and 8(4+4)gb ram. I am planning to build around may end next year. I feel the 2 year upgrade path will be half over by the time I built it. I want to secure it and if I can, can I put an eGPU on my laptop and use it? Will I have boot issues? I don't have m.2 or thunderbolt 3. I have mini pcie. Can I atleast get 1650 level performance in the end?

I have two laptops which I would like to run an eGPU;

 

I have a LG Gram 15Z950-GT50K, i5-5250U with single channel 8GB.

Video of the inside of the LG Gram:

 

I also have a Acer 8951g with a i7-2630qm sandy bridge with dual channel 16GB. there is a spare mPCIE slot free (for the gps module). Can i use this port?

Will this work on Acer 8951g spare mPCIE port.

Will I need setup program.

I have nvidia optimo.

Can the setup go from internal gpu on the road and external at home with min setup each time.

What is the best system and card i can use. (internal gt555m).

Is it worth it.

Will the external card have a lot more gain running with restriction compared to the stock Acer internal gt555m.

 

Link to the Acer 8961G specs:

 

Could this be an eGPU alternative connecting it to the WIFI Card slot?:

Hi,

I want to setup a cheap egpu setup with existing stuff I have sitting aroung. 

I have a Toshiba portege Z30 and an ADT Link R43SG (nvme) with a decent 1650 gpu sitting around.

I would like to create a simple gaming setup but I do not know how to connect the nvme connector with the laptop. 

There is obviously no thunderbolt port and no nvme interface in the laptop. I only could identify 1 mSata (SSD) and 2 "kind" of M.2 interfaces, 1 for wifi and 1 for broadband module.

Here is photo from the laptop motherboard M.2 interfaces

Any idea if it is possible to connect the egpu? I could not find anything in the forums.

As the tittle says I am trying to start a project, until now this are the parts I am planning to use:

GPU: Radeon RX 6700 XT

GPU Dock: ADT-Link M.2 Key M NVMe External Graphics Card Stand Bracket

PSU: PSU 450w 80+ Gold Crosair

This cable to feed the GPU through the dock.

I have 3 questions, the first 2 are more of a need on confirmation with the components:

1.- It seems that my pc's SSD NVMe runs on PCIe Gen 4 x4/PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface (According to the information on this site with specs on SSDs compatible with my laptop) So this maybe more of a need of confirmation, but is the GPU Dock I am planning to use the right one?

2.- While lookin up the wattage consumption on the GPU I want to use I found out that its peak consumption tops at close to 400w, but the recommended wattage for desktop is around 600w, so will 450w be enough? since my laptop has its own battery.

3.- This question might be the most important one, while learning about eGPUs it came to my attention that even if a Laptop has a M.2 SSD NVMe communication it is possible for companies to set up the software in a way that the communication wont be possible, and there seem to be ways to fix that. So my question is... How can I be totally sure if my Laptop will support the eGPU communication?

2020 15.6" Hp pavilion 15-3075cl [i71065G7] + Radeon RX 6700 XT @ 32Gps-M.2 (ADT-Link R3G) + Win10

I got this laptop https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/IdeaPad/IdeaPad_3_15IIL05/IdeaPad_3_15IIL05_Spec.PDF

I7-1065G7 variant

35W variant,the one with SATA(free) + nmve m.2(occupied by SSD)

The PC is perfect for my use(coding, college), however I am planning to upgrade the RAM(from 4 + 4 dual channel to 16 + 4 flex mode) since is awful doing too many graphical stuffs due to low ram.

Also I was wondering (since I didn't found anything on the web) it's theoretically possible using the occupied nmve slot to use an RTX 2060 GPU? maybe freeing the nmve slot and putting an SSD into the 2.5 SATA slot(so I don't loose the wifi card port and I still have portability)

 

PS:i don't want to open the laptop since is still in warranty, however I will do it after it ends
