ADT-Link MXM 3.0 to PCIe x8/x16 eGPU adapter
And it isn't very expensive like TB3 adapter and is more powerful i believe.
Is somebody in the forum that is able to test it for us to see how it works and do the perfomance tests?
i genuinely interested in this adaptor. is valid for MXM 3.0a port laptop?
i have a HP Elitebook 8540W, wich have MXM 3.0a port (Quadro FX880M) (no iGPU), i what to upgrade to EGPU amd this is a very interesting adaptor than Expresscard ones (bandwidth limit)
i'm very noob of egpu and laptop. this adapter+GPU needs connect to external display? or loopback to bundled laptop display?
@sl1pkn07_spinflo, I think that this adapter is capable to run in loopback mode. But about the compatibility with your model i don't know (i think all that need to work is an MxM interface no matter the version i guess), But my laptop also have MxM 3.0a slot and the size of the head that is plugged into the slot looks like was made to MxM type A. MxM is an pcie interface directly connected to CPU and have no bandwidth limitation by the way i guess he is compatible with all GPUs available in market.
This adapter are disponible in two versions. Pcie 8x and Pcie 16x. But Pcie 8x is more than sufficient to play all games decently like in a desktop with no bandwidth issues.
I don't know if does anyone have any news on this adapter?
I have an MSI GT72 2PE with the specs bellow and I'm very interested to know if can I use this adapter to upgrade the GPU instead of the Beast GDC one via NGFF slot that has a very poor bandwith to handle a midrange GPUs.
